Manchester United Injury Report Ahead Of The Game Against Leicester

Manchester United have no less than eight injury concerns heading into the match against Leicester City this weekend, with question marks over the fitness over a number of senior players.

Paul Pogba withdrew from international duty with an ankle injury and although it appears to be a precautionary measure, it remains to be seen if he’ll be fit to start on Saturday.

Anthony Martial is currently sidelined with a thigh problem, and while he missed out on the matchday squad against Southampton, it is believed he should be back in contention to face the Foxes.

Luke Shaw won’t be ready to return, though. The left-back is still believed to be two to three weeks away from full fitness after suffering a hamstring injury against Crystal Palace.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka withdrew from the England squad with a back complaint and will need to be assessed by the club’s medical staff ahead of the Leicester game.

Diogo Dalot has reportedly travelled to China to have treatment on a troublesome hip injury. The Portuguese right-back was expected to return after the international break but that now looks unlikely.

Jesse Lingard should be available for the weekend, following an illness which forced him to withdraw from the England squad. Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah (both knee) are, though, long-term injury absentees.
