Manchester United's latest injury concerns explained ahead of  Premier League return

The international break is loathed by many fans because we miss Premier League action. And the possibility for players to pick up injuries is not a good thing either.

Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Raphael Varane recently won the UEFA Nations League with France - but Rafa injured his thigh during the final.

Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay have recovered and even started the Everton draw before the break. takes a look at some of Manchester United's latest injury concerns:

Marcus Rashford

Rashy is expected to return when we face Leicester City on October 16. He's recovered fully from shoulder surgery and scored in a closed-doors friendly.

On when he could return, the 23-year-old said in an interview: "It’s good now, I’m pretty much at the end now. I feel ready to be back on the pitch. So yeah, I‘m just looking forward to the next slot of games [after the international break] – it’s a busy schedule."

Anthony Martial

Martial scored his first goal of the season in the 1-1 Everton draw but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the striker picked up a knock.

Anto still travelled with the France squad and was named on the bench during the Nations League final. He seems okay and it appears the injury hasn't worsened.

Harry Maguire

As per the official website, there is no set date as to when the captain could return.

Maguire is out with a calf injury and might not be ready in time to face Leicester.

Ahead of the Everton draw, Ole said: "I don’t know how long it will take for Harry and his injury."


Amad missed out on a loan to Feyenoord over the summer because of his injury.

While the youngster is back in training, he could make a comeback around mid-October.

When asked about Amad's injury a few weeks ago, Ole told club media: "Still injured, still out for about a month. So maybe after the next international break he will be available for us which is great for us."

Raphael Varane

This is the biggest concern at the moment.

Rafa was spotted hobbling during the Nations League final and had to be taken off in the first half.

The Manchester Evening News has confirmed that it's thigh injury and that the club will further assess the 28-year-old once he returns to Carrington this week. Hopefully, it's nothing major!

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Wan-Bissaka is not injured but he's suspended for the Champions League clash against Atalanta on October 20.

The Red Devils have stated that they will appeal the ban but so far, there is no word on whether it could be overturned.
