Latest Manchester United Injury Report: Updates On Rashford, James, Martial And Bailly

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford lasted 72 minutes in the 3-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday but there are still doubts about his fitness.

The England international is carrying a foot injury, which he is having to manage through games, so it is likely that he will be left on the bench for tomorrow’s Europa League clash with Granada. With the Red Devils 2-0 up from the first leg of their quarter-final tie, there is no need to risk him.

Daniel James missed the victory over Spurs at the weekend with a knock, but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did not provide any details in terms of the nature of the injury, or whether he would be out for a long period. He is currently classed as a minor doubt for the Granada match.

Anthony Martial is unlikely to play again this season. The 25-year-old picked up a serious knee sprain on international duty last month, having to be substituted early in the second half of France’s 2-0 win over Kazakhstan.

Solskjaer has confirmed that the forward will be out of action for a “few weeks.” However, he was not confident about the player returning before United’s last domestic game against Wolves on May 23rd, which suggests he could be sidelined for up to two months.

Eric Bailly should be back in Manchester before tomorrow’s match versus Granada. The defender tested positive for the virus whilst with the Ivory Coast and he will need to go through quarantine before being allowed to play again. He is unlikely to be available before Sunday’s game against Burnley.

Phil Jones is the only other player currently on the treatment table. The defender has yet to play a first-team match this season, following knee surgery last summer, and it seems he could now miss a whole year of football.
