Manchester United star players’ injury report in detail
Harry has gone through an uncertain hamstring injury in UEFA Nations League. Due to his injury, England had got a downfall of 2 goals against Germany but they later turned the game by taking 3 strikes within 12 minutes.
While moving towards the end of the game at Wembley Stadium, Harry was seen limping due to his injury. But managed to survive for the whole 90 minutes until the end. It’s quite uncertain that Maguire will be present at Man united’s match on Sunday, 2nd October against the rivals Manchester City.
Even though he received criticism for his performance, his teammates took his side and praised him for playing till last.
The striker of Manchester United, Martial has still not returned to training after his Achilles injury. Martial suffered the injury after playing for only 45 minutes in Premier League football this season.
On 8th Sept, Ten Hag said: ” Yes, he is still out. He is progressing but he is not ready to get back into training or in a game”.
The forward player of United has also missed his training due to his thigh injury along with the above players. Marcus acquired the injury after the win against Arsenal on 4th September in the Premier League.
However, Marcus has had almost a month’s recovery period ahead of the Manchester derby on 2nd October. So, the player is expected to return for further matches as he is back now and is also training hard to be good enough for upcoming matches.
