Wayne Rooney has been left out of the Manchester United squad to travel to Rotterdam for the Europa League tie with Feynoord on Thursday night.
The Manchester United and England captain trained with the squad at the Aon Training Complex on Wednesday, but was left out of the travelling squad along with Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia for the European opener.
Jesse Lingard and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who were both taken off at half-time during the defeat to Manchester City at the weekend, have also been left out as Jose Mourinho looks to utilise his squad in Holland, while Phil Jones is injured.
Marcus Rashford could be set for a first start of the season, while Matteo Darmian, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Marcos Rojo, Michael Carrick and Memphis Depay may also be included having failed to make the derby day squad.

Wayne Rooney believes Sam Allardyce is a good appointment as England manager.
Skipper Rooney, his country's all-time leading goalscorer, was part of a Three Lions side which was humiliated by Iceland at last month's European Championship and suggestions followed that he may retire from the international stage.
But the Manchester United forward, who turns 31 in October, is keen to continue and is relishing working with Allardyce.
Rooney told various newspapers:
Yeah, I think it's a good appointment for England. He will probably bring a different way of playing to England and hopefully it's a good way and we can be successful under him.
I only know him through teams he has managed. I have seen him a few times off the pitch, but it's like everyone, I know him through the teams in the Premier League. Am I going to carry on? Of course. It was asked of me after the Euros, but yes, I'll be there.
