Manchester United latest injury news as key Everton player ruled out (Premier League)



| Last Updated:


Manchester United welcome Everton to Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon as Erik ten Hag deals with multiple injuries.

Manchester United hope Rasmus Højlund will be fit to face Everton at Old Trafford this Saturday, with Erik ten Hag‘s men needing three points in the Premier League.

Højlund was ruled out for at least two weeks ahead of the recent loss to Fulham, and the club have scored just two goals in their last three games without their top scorer this season.

One of those goals was against Manchester City as Marcus Rashford, who played the fixture despite suffering from a bruised rib, but the England international is expected to be fit and ready to play for the weekend.

Beyond this, United are still without five players: Lisandro Martínez, Mason Mount, Tyrell Malacia, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Anthony Martial.

Martial and Martínez are out for at least another month, with neither player expected back until mid-April after suffering respective groin and knee injuries earlier this year.

Mason Mount and Tyrell Malacia are expected to return to first-team training within the next few weeks, but a timeline for their return to the pitch remains unclear.

Wan-Bissaka suffered a delay in his rehabilitation for his leg problem a few weeks ago, and although he is expected back before the aforementioned players, again, this remains ambiguous.

For Everton, manager Sean Dyche confirmed that winger Arnaut Danjuma is “not there yet” as he prepares his side to run out at Old Trafford. He also confirmed that midfielder Idrissa Gueye is “unlikely but has a chance” of returning.
