Erik ten Hag has supplied an update on his Manchester United squad plans for Saturday's Premier League game at Bournemouth.

Jonny Evans and Raphael Varane had already been ruled out of the 17:30 BST kick-off at the Vitality Stadium.

The experienced pair are joined by fellow defenders Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia and Victor Lindelof on the sidelines. Striker Anthony Martial also remains out.

Scott McTominay missed the 2-2 draw with Liverpool and seems unlikely to be fit in time but fellow homegrown star Marcus Rashford has trained and may be available to feature.

"Scott? I don't think so," the manager said at his press conference, when asked about McTominay's involvement. "We have training, so we have a day and he will push.

"He is so keen to be part of it tomorrow, but I think it is very questioning. And then Rashford... Rashy trained yesterday and [we will] see how he recovered from it today.

"We will have training again today and then we will make a decision on it."


Andoni Iraola has added Antoine Semenyo to his list of absentees, as the Ghana winger has had a cold and is nursing a minor calf problem. The hosts are also without Marcus Tavernier, Ryan Fredericks and Luis Sinisterra.

Tavernier, who scored in the last game against Luton Town, faces a battle to feature again this term. "It is just one month until the end of the season," said Iraloa. "I hope he plays, but it is going to be the more difficult to play a lot of games."

Tyler Adams and Chris Mepham were rated as doubls but will not feature either.

"Tyler is improving but he is definitely out tomorrow," added Iraola on the club's official website. "It is a muscle thing. 'Meps' has a health issue."

The Cherries boss has just been awarded Manager of the Month for March.
