United captain Rooney missed Saturday’s goalless draw with West Ham United at Old Trafford with an ankle injury, while midfielder Schneiderlin was forced off during the match with a hip problem.

The pair will remain in Manchester while the rest of the squad travel to Germany for the match against the current Group B leaders. United will also be without the injured Ander Herrera, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo at the Volkswagen Arena.
