Manchester United injury list and expected return dates ahead of Granada

3 min read

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces a selection headache for the second leg of Manchester United’s Europa League tie with Granada on Wednesday evening.

The Reds go into the game at Old Trafford with the luxury of a two-goal lead from the first leg, but Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay are all suspended for the match.

Solskjaer also has some injury issues to contend with, meaning United’s starting XI could be a slightly patched-up one on Thursday evening.

Here is United’s injury list and expected return dates.

Marcus Rashford

Rashford could sit out the game against Granada due to an ongoing foot injury, which prevented him from training on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Expected return date: April 18

The French attacker is set to miss the rest of the season after picking up a knee injury on international duty last month.

Expected return date: N/A

Bailly has returned to England after testing positive for Covid-19 on international duty, but he is unavailable to face Granada, and it is not currently clear when he will be able to play again.
