Manchester United have several injury concerns ahead of the Premier League clash against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Erik ten Hag will have to select from a potentially depleted squad as he picks his Manchester United XI to face Manchester City on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League.

With the two sides having vastly different aims for the remainder of the season, City are still determined to defend its treble hunt as United try to get itself back into the conversations for a top-four finish.

For Ten Hag, he will remain without Lisandro Martínez, Anthony Martial, Tyrell Malacia, and Rasmus Højlund as the quadrant of players remain on the treatment table.

Hojliund still has a week or two remaining before he is fit to be available once again, while Martínez and Martial are out until early April. Malacia has no due date on his return but is expected to make his way back to training on grass next week.

Harry Maguire missed the recent FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest, but there has been no update on his fitness, although Ten Hag did say that he doesn’t expect any changes from the squad that played on Wednesday.

Bruno Fernandes has been spotted limping after the last two fixtures against Fulham and Nottingham Forest, but completed 90 minutes across both games and is not expected to miss the Manchester Derby.

Raphaël Varane, who was also a doubt for the Forest trip, also completed the full game and seems fit to play.

Mason Mount, Luke Shaw, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka all remain unavailable. Mount and Wan-Bissaka are expected back fairly soon, while Shaw is out for around three months with a leg problem.
