Manchester United are set to face Tottenham on Sunday, as the Premier League action resumes.

Ahead of the match here are the latest injury updates.

Marcus Rashford was withdrawn against Granada after an hour, but there was no fresh injury issue with the forward and he was only substituted as a precaution.

So the 23-year-old is expected to play against Spurs.

Paul Pogba was replaced with 15 minutes left against Granada with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer describing it as a niggle, but he is expected to be fit to face Spurs.

“Paul had a bit of a niggle but we should be okay,” said the Red Devils’ boss.

Luke Shaw was substituted for Alex Telles at half-time against Granada, however it was to protect the left-back, who had been booked.

Anthony Martial sustained a knee sprain on international duty with France and his chances of playing again this season are slim.

“Anthony has started his recovery and, if we see him before the end of the season, I will be very surprised,” said Solskjaer.

Eric Bailly tested positive for Covid-19 while on international duty and his return to England was delayed. It is now unclear when the defender will be available for selection again.

“Unfortunately for Eric, he won’t be with us for a little while because he’s been away with the Ivory Coast and tested positive for Covid,” revealed United head coach.

Elsewhere, Phil Jones continues to recuperate after undergoing a knee surgery last summer. It remains to be seen whether he features at all this season.
