Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Watford

By , Editor | 1mo
Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for a depleted Manchester United ahead of their return to Premier League action against Watford.

Manchester United return to Premier League action after the international break with a home match against Watford in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Red Devils lost two games in a row for the first time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer immediately before the break, seeing them drop out of the top four and suffer elimination from the FA Cup.

Victory this weekend would lift them back into the Champions League places with Arsenal not in action until Monday night, but a third successive defeat would leave them with plenty of work to do over the final seven games of the season.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Solskjaer's side.



MANCHESTER UNITED'S INJURY LIST



Romelu Lukaku

Status: Slight doubt
Type of injury: Foot
Possible return date: March 30 (vs. Watford)

Romelu Lukaku was forced to withdraw from the Belgium squad during the international break having failed to recover from his foot injury and he remains a doubt for this game.



Alexis Sanchez



Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: April 21 (vs. Everton)

It is likely to be another five games at least before Alexis Sanchez is ready to return from his latest injury, having suffered ligament damage against Southampton at the start of the month.




Anthony Martial

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: March 30 (vs. Watford)

Anthony Martial played the full 90 minutes of United's FA Cup defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers before the international break, but he did not feature for France having been forced to withdraw with a knee problem.




Marcus Rashford



Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: March 30 (vs. Watford)

Another who was forced to pull out of his international squad, Marcus Rashford played no part in England's double-header due to an ankle problem which continues to make him a doubt for this weekend's match.



Matteo Darmian



Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Unknown
Possible return date: March 30 (vs. Watford)

Matteo Darmian's situation remains unclear, having returned to training but still not come close to a return to the matchday squad. The Italian has not featured since a brief substitute appearance on January 19.




Luke Shaw



Status: Slight doubt
Type of injury: Knock
Possible return date: March 30 (vs. Watford)

Another withdrawal from Gareth Southgate's England squad, Shaw also faces a race against time to prove his fitness ahead of Saturday's match.




Nemanja Matic



Status: Slight doubt
Type of injury: Knock
Possible return date: March 30 (vs. Watford)

Nemanja Matic returned to fitness before the international break, but he has since suffered another knock which makes him a slight doubt to face Watford.




Eric Bailly



Status: Slight doubt
Type of injury: Head
Possible return date: March 30 (vs. Watford)

Eric Bailly suffered a nasty collision of heads on international duty with Ivory Coast, but he did return to his feet before being subbed as a precaution. The centre-back will go through the necessary tests before being ruled in or out of the match.




MANCHESTER UNITED'S SUSPENSION LIST



United have no players suspended for this match.
