Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Manchester City – Sports Mole

Manchester United will aim to win their fifth Premier League game on the bounce when Manchester City make the journey to Old Trafford for Sunday’s Manchester derby.
The Red Devils have not been in action in the top flight since defeating Arsenal 3-1 on September 4, losing to Real Sociedad and beating Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League since then.
Erik ten Hag‘s men have stormed to fifth in the table since recovering from their disastrous start to the new season, and victory on Sunday would see them cut the gap to the champions – who have played a game more – down to two points.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up Man United’s latest injury and suspension news ahead of the derby with Man City, who sit second in the table with 17 points to their name.

Harry Maguire endured a demoralising evening for England against Germany – being at fault for Die Mannschaft’s first two goals – but it then emerged that he was suffering from a hamstring issue during the game. The extent of the damage is currently unclear, but the centre-back is reported to be facing a couple of weeks on the sidelines.

Type of injury: Knock
Possible return date: October 2 (vs. Manchester City)
The out-of-favour Donny van de Beek will aim to recover from a knock in time to face the champions this weekend, although he is unlikely to earn many minutes either way.

Anthony Martial

Type of injury: Achilles
Possible return date: Unknown
Anthony Martial’s Achilles problem is proving difficult to overcome, and he was left out of the squad to face Sheriff in the Europa League. The Frenchman was not pictured in the latest set of training images either, so the derby may come too soon for him.

Type of injury: Unspecified
Possible return date: October 2 (vs. Manchester City)

Possible return date: October 2 (vs. Manchester City)
Marcus Rashford was snubbed for an England call-up in September after sustaining a muscular injury, and the 24-year-old was not pictured in training at the weekend either, so he is facing a race against time to make himself available.

Possible return date: October 2 (vs. Manchester City)
