Erik ten Hag's side are next in action against Brentford on March 30 and could have at least two individuals fit and ready to feature once more, in the form of Altay Bayindir and Jonny Evans.

The Red Devils will be hoping to avoid any further issues with members of their first-team squad as they prepare to represent their respective countries over the next week, at what is a crucial point in the season.

Mason Mount is one name who made his long-awaited return at the weekend, and others will have plans to follow suit in the coming weeks. Below is a round-up of the latest United injury news and return dates.


Injury: Musclar.

What Ten Hag has said: "It does [affect us] because Casemiro is very experienced and a very important player for us in organisation, also on the ball, he brings composure to the team and he can bring great passes to bring our frontline into great positions, especially with the three with their immense speed. You miss, of course, a passer like Casemiro."

Expected return date: TBC.

Altay Bayindir

Injury: Muscular.

What the club have said: "The 25-year-old, who made his Reds debut in the fourth round at Newport County, has a muscle strain which is expected to keep him out for around two weeks."

Expected return date: March 30 vs Brentford (A).

Jonny Evans

Injury: Knock.

What Ten Hag has said: "Also Jonny, in the last minute of the training, he dropped out. Then we have to adjust to bring a player in who didn't train, didn't play for four or five weeks and he had only one or two training sessions with the team."

Expected return date: March 30 vs Brentford (A).

Lisandro Martinez

Injury: Knee.

What Ten Hag has said: "It's a setback, of course. You see his contribution to the team when he's playing. Apart from his technical skills, he also brings mentality into the team, but it's a big setback. He's disappointed, but he's a fighter, he will be back and he will be back stronger."

Return date: April 2024.

Luke Shaw

Injury: Muscle.

What the club have said: "Luke Shaw has sustained a muscle injury and will be out for an extended period. Further assessment is still needed to determine the severity but we expect him to be absent for a few months."

Return date: TBC.

Tyrell Malacia

Injury: Unspecified.

What Ten Hag has said: "Malacia will take some more weeks. Yeah, he had setbacks during his rehab process. It takes too long, it's bad for him. Bad for us. But now, we turned a point and it's positive, he will return soon on the pitch. I don't think then it will take long before he's returning in the team training."

Return date: TBC.

Omari Forson

Injury: Unspecified.

What Ten Hag has said: "The rest is the same squad apart from Omari Forson. He dropped out, he has an injury."

Return date: TBC.

Anthony Martial

Injury: Groin.

What Ten Hag has said: "It's not a secret that I wanted a striker extra. Because with the injury of Martial we don't really have back-up there, but it was not possible because we have to match the Financial Fair Play rules. But, yeah, we have to be a little bit creative if it's up to the No.9 position."

Return date: April 2024.
