Manchester United in an injury crisis; draft Tom Huddlestone into first team training

Manchester United

Manchester United are dealing with an injury crisis at the moment. They were so depleted in midfield that the U-23 player-manager, Tom Huddlestone, was drafted into first-team training on Monday. However, the lack of options was partly because the players who started against Liverpool on Sunday had a recovery session on Monday. This meant that Amrabat, Mainoo and McTominay were absent from training.

Manchester United have injuries in every position

In midfield, Mount, Casemiro and Eriksen have all been out. Casemiro has missed the last ten games due to a hamstring problem. Mount is still recovering from a calf strain. Eriksen too hasn’t featured since coming off against Luton Town on November 11.

In defense, Lindelof has missed the last three Manchester United games with an unspecified injury that forced him off at half-time against Chelsea two weeks ago. Maguire is also out for a short period, while Malacia is still sidelined until early next year. Meanwhile, to make thinks worse, Diogo Dalot is suspended for the West Ham fixture this week.

The Red Devils only have one minor issue in attack, with Martial missing the two games last week due to illness.

There is some light at the end of the tunnel for Man Utd

Man United also have some positive updates. Eriksen returned to Manchester United team training his week after a 40-day injury layoff. Bruno will also be back for the West Ham game after serving a one match suspension.

Apart from that, Lindelof and Martial are also close to a return. Ten Hag will confirm whether they will be available for the trip to West Ham.

Varane got a chance to start in the absence Maguire and Lindelof. He was impressive especially against Liverpool. Varane getting back in form is certainly a positive of Ten Hag. The manager will want as many players in form as possible.
