Casemiro, Anthony Martial and Christian Eriksen possible return dates and latest news
While Erik ten Hag’s side have made tangible progress in recent months winning the Carabao Cup and beating Barcelona in spectacular fashion, Sunday’s dismal defeat at Liverpool will be long remembered.
Whatever happens for the rest of the campaign, it will always be the season in which United lost 7-0 at Anfield.
Still, and while it will be difficult to move on, United have more battles to come.
Ten Hag’s side face Real Betis in the Europa League ahead of games against Southampton in the Premier League and Fulham in the FA Cup. To even come close to getting back on track, United must surely win them all.
Given their relatively small squad compared to big rivals, the former Ajax coach needs everyone on deck as the club struggle on multiple fronts.
With that in mind, here’s a look at Manchester United’s latest injuries…
The Brazilian, a kingpin of that United side just months into his career with the club, appeared to pick up an injury in the Liverpool defeat.
According to ESPN, the former Real Madrid midfielder is doubtful for the Betis game and will be assessed by the club’s medical staff in the coming days.
Potential return date: Sunday March 12, 2023 vs Southampton
Martial looked set for a big season under ten Hag after impressing in pre-season but struggled with injuries for much of the campaign.
Given the extent of his problems, ten Hag is unlikely to rush the striker into action, but has recently hinted that Martial could return ahead of the international break later this month.
Potential return date: March 2023
Lindelof, who fell behind Rapheal Varane and Lisandro Martinez in the pecking order anyway, missed the game at Anfield with a minor knock.
Potential return date: Thursday March 9, 2023 vs Real Betis
In January, United confirmed that Eriksen would miss up to four months of action with a serious ankle injury, which led to the signing of Marcel Sabitzer on loan.
That kind of delay would put the Denmark international on track for a comeback in late April.
Potential return date: April 2023
Donny van de Beek
In a cruel blow to the Dutchman, Donny van de Beek was ruled out for the remainder of the season in January.
Potential return date: summer 2023
