Alexis Sanchez has been included in Manchester United's squad for Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg at Barcelona.

The Chile international forward has been sidelined for the last six weeks because of a knee injury.

We understand as a team that we have to go into the second leg with a positive mind-set.

Matteo Darmian and Nemanja Matic have also been named in the 22-man squad as United attempt to reach the semi-finals of the competition despite losing 1-0 in the first leg at Old Trafford.

Luke Shaw is suspended for the second leg after picking up a yellow card in last week's game against the La Liga leaders.

Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford believes United can cause a major shock by winning at the Nou Camp.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men managed to beat Paris Saint-Germain in the last round despite losing the first leg on home soil 2-0.

An upbeat Rashford said: "We understand as a team that we have to go into the second leg with a positive mind-set and get the job done.

"I think we have to do things more as a team. When they have the ball we have to press and everyone has to press. When we have the ball and we're attacking, then everyone has to be up, so if we lose the ball we can win it back quickly.

"We'll always take confidence from winning in Paris, but we also understand that it's not PSG; it's a different match, a different atmosphere, it's a completely different ball game.

"We go there confident, but if we're going to win it's probably going to be different to how we did it in Paris."

United are 9.00 to qualify for the semi-finals and 41.00 to beat Barcelona 2-0 on Tuesday. Meanwhile, they can be backed at 3.75 to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season.
