Yeovil Town F.C. vs Manchester United – Latest Injury News

Mourinho should have an easy match ahead of him despite 4 important absences. Yeovil have not had a great season as they are third from bottom in League 2 so there is no reason to think Manchester United have anything to fear.

It will probably be just a formality, a formality which will allow Alexis Sanchez to get acquainted with the team and the playing style. From this perspective, it would be good to see the first team on the pitch.

Unfortunately, Sanchez will not be able to perform next to either of the following players:

Eric Bailly – Ankle Injury – out since November. He is expected to hopefully return in February so he will not be featured against Yeovil. Bailly is probably the biggest absence United must deal with right now.

Daley Blind – Muscular Injury – out since the EFL Cup loss to Bristol City. The Dutchman is expected to return around the beginning of February if all goes well. He might be rushed into playing though as the defense is thin right now.

Zlatan Ibrahimović – Knee Injury – is expected to return in March. Hopefully we will get to see him next to Alexis Sanchez. Zlatan’s future is in doubt though as he is 36 and knee injuries are worse with age.

Michael Carrick – Heart Condition – finally Carrick is close to getting back on the pitch. Recent tests shown he could return to the pitch in February. Even though it would be inevitable to see a difference in his performances, everyone would love to see Carrick play a couple of games this season.

Yeovil Town will very likely have to play without Otis Khan who is suspended. There was an appeal for that but there’s not a chance for him to be on the pitch.

As mentioned above, United should not have any problem going through despite the 4 injured players. Hopefully there will be no surprises and Sanchez will make his debut the right way by scoring.
