The Portuguese superstar and some key players for the Red Devils were not spotted at the Lowry Hotel as the team prepared for Sunday's clash.

Manchester United fans have been left with a lot to ponder with reports suggesting that up to four key players could be missing when their side faces Man City at Etihad on Sunday. Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani, Luke Shaw and Raphael Varane are the personnel whose availability is in doubt, having failed to show up at the Lowry Hotel as the Red Devils prepare for the derby.

The stakes are high for the two Manchester clubs for obvious reason ahead of Sunday's showdown. On one end, Man City will look to maintain their six point gap over title-chasing Liverpool while United will aim to add to their bid for a top-four finish. Considering the magnitude of the result, both club are poised to field their best starting lineups.

While news of Ruben Dias' unavailability was music to the ears of the Red Devils', they may now have to deal with a more bigger problem with the club supposedly missing up to four key members of their squad for the derby. According to Manchester Evening News, top-scorer of the side Cristiano Ronaldo, as well as Edinson Cavani, Raphael Varane and Luke Shaw were all not spotted as the players entered the Lowry Hotel in preparation for tomorrow's game.

It remains unclear whether they will have a role to play in the encounter with the Red's interim manager Ralf Rangnick yet to reveal the status of the players. Below are the squad members spotted at the hotel ahead of the Manchester Derby:

  • Goalkeepers: De Gea, Henderson, Heaton,

  • Defenders: Dalot, Wan-Bissaka, Jones, Maguire, Bailly, Lindelof, Telles

  • Midfieders: Matic, McTominay, Fred, Pogba, Hannibal, Lingard, Mata, Fernandes

  • Forwards: Sancho, Elanga, Rashford.
