New Manchester United signing Alexis Sanchez will be in the squad Jose Mourinho takes to Huish Park for an FA Cup tie with League Two Yeovil.

Mourinho has promised to play a "very strong team" but conceded some players will be rested, with Sergio Romero likely to replace David De Gea in goal as he did in the last round.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Eric Bailly remain sidelined by injury while Axel Tuanzebe joined Aston Villa on loan on Thursday.

Provisional squad: Romero, De Gea, Pereira, Darmian, Jones, Smalling, Valencia, Lindelof, Rojo, Shaw, Blind, Young, McTominay, Pogba, Herrera, Matic, Carrick, Fellaini, Mata, Lingard, Martial, Rashford, Sanchez, Lukaku.
