On Sunday, Manchester United will play West Ham United at Old Trafford in the Premier League. It is possible that the club will not have all four of its players available for the match.
At Molineux on Thursday, the side that Erik Ten Hag is leading just emerged victorious in a nail-biting game by a score of 4–3.
A victory over the Hammers may move them to within four points of Tottenham Hotspur, who are now in fourth position. They are aware of this possibility. However, Ten Hag may have a challenging afternoon due to the fact that a significant number of United first-team players who are regulars are going to be injured. The fitness issues that the club is experiencing continue to worsen.
Due to the fact that his contract is slated to expire in the summer, it is now unknown whether or not the Frenchman will ever play for the Reds again. There is currently no predetermined date for when the Frenchman could play again at Old Trafford.
Four key players for Manchester United are expected to be absent from the match between Manchester United and West Ham United, according to breaking news.
“Anthony has successfully recovered from surgery to fix a groin problem and will be out of action for approximately ten weeks as he heals,” Ten Hag wrote in a report on his health that was released a month ago.
In the past several weeks, Mason Mount and Tyrell Malacia, who have both sustained a significant amount of injuries throughout the course of this season, have both made significant advancements in their recuperation by working on the grass at Carrington.
However, given that both players have been sidelined for a considerable amount of time, it is probable that Ten Hag will gradually bring them back into action. Both are not anticipated to participate in this weekend’s match against West Ham. On top of that, Aaron Wan Bissika is not expected to participate.
Due to the fact that both Sofyan Amrabat and Victor Lindelof are scheduled to return to Old Trafford this weekend, it is possible that United may improve their performance.
The injury that Amrabat sustained plus the fact that his country is competing in the Africa Cup of Nations have prevented him from playing since the draw that took place at Anfield in December. Amrabat is now on loan from United. Ten Hag, on the other hand, provided confirmation that the midfielder will practice on Saturday and may be able to play.
Another possibility is that United will be able to bring back Lindelof, who has been sidelined since December due to thigh surgery. Again, he could be able to play with Amrabat.
