And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has decided to include the pair as United look to make up for last season’s semi-final defeat to Sevilla.
New winger Diallo could be set for some action after completing his £35million switch from Atalanta last month.
The 18-year-old is yet to make his debut for the Red Devils.
But Diallo impressed with two goals in a win over Liverpool for United’s U23s.
And with Solskjaer looking to battle for the Premier League title, Diallo could be called upon more frequently in Europe.
Meanwhile, defender Jones has not made an appearance for United in over a year.
The 28-year-old was linked with a move away from Old Trafford in the January transfer window but ended up staying.
But Solskjaer wants Jones around to bulk up defensive numbers and hopes the centre-back can rediscover his old form soon after a number of injury setbacks.

Solskjaer explained: “It’s disheartening, it’s the worst thing for a footballer.
“When you’ve got injuries, it can take your passion away, your chance to play football away.
“He’s a top football, he was in the World Cup squad two years back, he was brilliant when I came in.
“I wish him back into the squad as quick as I can. He’s a solid citizen and one of those you can trust.
“He’s working very hard to get back, for us and for himself.
“I’ve been through bad injuries myself and it might take your belief away and your enjoyment away.
“He’s been working so hard to get back, he’s had a couple of setbacks but hopefully we can get some good use out of him.”
