Marouane Fellaini is available for Manchester United’s Europa League second-leg tie with Celta Vigo at Old Trafford Today ( 2nd Leg).

The midfielder is serving a three-match suspension following his sending-off against Manchester City last month, but that only applies to domestic matches.

Antonio Valencia has trained since missing Sunday’s defeat by Arsenal.

Former Manchester United forward Giuseppe Rossi (knee) is out for Celta Vigo.

The 30-year-old will be sidelined for at least six months after suffering a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee against Eibar last month.

Manchester United are looking to the Europa League as a passage to next season’s Champions League.

‘The most important match in our history’
However, United boss Jose Mourinho also sees it as the ideal opportunity to win a trophy the club has never won before.

“No-one else did it before,” he said. “It will be very important for the club and the players. We will fight hard.

“For Celta, in their words, it’s the most important match of their history and my feelings it’s also the most important match of our history.

“It doesn’t matter what happened before, what matters is the next one.”

Celta Vigo, who have scored in all six of their Europa League away games this season, are bidding to win their first major trophy in Europe.

Their coach Eduardo Berizzo, a former Argentina defender, remains undaunted by the challenge facing his side.

“It represents a massive hurdle for Celta. This in itself is a motivation,” he said.

“Having nearly 3,000 people travelling all the way from Spain, even after losing the first leg 1-0, those fans didn’t give up, even against the most powerful team in the world with 70,000 of their own fans.

“We’ve got to go with the attitude that in football, everything is possible.”
