Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has a number of injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s game against Crystal Palace.
The Red Devils could be without six players due to knocks picked up on international duty and other ongoing injury problems.
Romelu Lukaku is still struggling with a hamstring injury and did not feature for Belgium during the international break, while Maraoune Fellaini was also omitted as he continues to recover full fitness following a groin problem.
Paul Pogba missed the Manchester derby because of a thigh strain and was excluded from Didier Deschamps’s France squad for the matches against the Netherlands and Uruguay. Anthony Martial also had to withdraw from international duty due to an adductor injury.
Marcus Rashford picked up a knock against Croatia on Sunday and will be assessed by United’s medical team, while Victor Lindelof had to be substituted at half-time in Sweden’s win over Turkey on Saturday due to illness.
Out of those sidelined, the club are reportedly confident that Pogba and Fellaini will be fit to play against Palace, with Lindelof also likely to be back in contention.
However, the injuries to Rashford, Martial and Lukaku are more concerning, and we will probably only know more about their severity when Mourinho holds his pre-match press conference later his week.
One piece of good injury news is that fullback Diogo Dalot is back in full training following two months out.
