Erik ten Hag admits two fresh Man United injury doubts for Everton Premier League clash



| Last Updated:


Erik ten Hag has admitted that Manchester United have two fresh doubts for their Premier League clash against Everton next weekend.

Manchester United have lost back-to-back games in the Premier League of late, against Fulham and then Manchester City, but with games at home against Everton and Sheffield United to come, this offers a chance for a reset and to pick up some much-needed good form.

Erik ten Hag‘s men sit 11 points from the top four spots in the table, and with 11 games remaining in the competition, Champions League qualification is starting to feel somewhat out of reach for the Reds.

Against City, United were missing eight first-team members due to injuries, and speaking after the game, Ten Hag admitted that the fitnesses of both Marcus Rashford and Jonny Evans are unclear.

“We had two players on the pitch, they were not 100 per cent [in] Jonny Evans and Marcus Rashford, and they gave everything, as the whole team gave everything,” Ten Hag said in his post-match press conference.

“I don’t know, I can’t tell you (if they will be fit to face Everton). Finally, they had to come off, but I [would have] preferred to keep them on as I think the organisation was very good.

“Jonny played brilliantly with Rapha (Varane) in the centre, and Rashford defended well. Also in the break, we know his quality and he could have scored another goal.”

United host Everton on Saturday in the early kick-off next Saturday afternoon, with the hope that Rasmus Højlund will be available once again.

The Danish striker was ruled out for at least two weeks ahead of the Fulham fixture last weekend, and Ten Hag is due to give an update on his fitness later this week ahead of the Everton tie.
