It seems likely that Lukas Klostermann (knee) and Amadou Haidara (positive COVID-19 test) will have to sit out the Red Bulls’ first-ever meeting with United. Midfielders Tyler Adams and Konrad Laimer are also missing with knee problems.
Former Crystal Palace forward Alexander Sorloth enjoyed a prolific 2019/20 campaign at Trabzonspor and joined RB Leipzig in the summer. He started for the first time at the weekend and could partner Yussuf Poulsen up front, depending on which system Julian Nagelsmann chooses to employ. French defender Ibrahima Konate is also back in the reckoning – he has appeared twice for the Red Bulls in the past week, after an injury-hit 12 months which has seen him limited to just one 90-minute outing since September 2019.
