Man Utd's Champions League campaign gets underway later this month and their squad has been named.

Manchester United named their 25-man squad for the Champions League group phase on Thursday morning, and Mason Greenwood's absence from the 'A list' of players may have raised eyebrows among some supporters.

However, there is no need for fans to panic, as Greenwood didn't need to be included on the 'A list' because he qualifies to be included on United's 'B list', which is reserved for young, club-trained players.

Uefa rules on the 'A list' state: "A maximum of 25 players, two of whom must be goalkeepers [can be included on the A list]. There are a minimum of eight places reserved exclusively for 'locally trained players'. If a club have fewer than eight locally trained players in their squad, then the maximum number of players on List A is reduced accordingly."

Uefa rules on the 'B list' state: "A player may be registered on List B if he is born on, or after, 1 January 1999 and has been eligible to play for the club concerned for any uninterrupted period of two years since his 15th birthday (players aged 16 may be submitted if they have been registered with the club for the previous two years). Clubs are entitled to register an unlimited number of players on List B during the season, but the list must be submitted by no later than 24:00CET the day before a match."

That means Greenwood, who was born in 2001 and has been at United since 2007, as well as the likes of Teden Mengi (born in 2002) and Brandon Williams (born in 2000), are all eligible to be named on United's 'B list' of players.
