All the latest information on injuries and suspensions in the Manchester United first-team squad, with updates taken directly from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s press conferences and interviews.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford remains sidelined after undergoing an operation on a shoulder injury during the summer.
The 23-year-old has resumed work at Carrington but is not yet ready for a full return to first-team training, while his on-pitch comeback is expected next month.
“Marcus, of course, is still rehabbing. He’s out on the grass running, so that looks good,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said before the Wolves game on 29 August.
“But he’s still a few weeks away from training with the team.”
Alex Telles will miss the start of the season.
Scott McTominay and Alex Telles are also on the recovery trail and were pictured at the training ground earlier this week.
Telles has yet to feature this season after suffering an ankle injury during July’s training camp in Surrey.
Scott played against Leeds and Southampton but sat out of the Wolves clash because he needed surgery to correct a groin issue. Both should be available again soon.
“Alex is not 100 per cent,” said the manager on 10 September, before Newcastle’s visit.
“He's still a few weeks [away]. Scott has recovered very quickly from the operation so, if he's going to play or not, I'm not sure probably not, depending on who we've got available.”
Dean Henderson at Carrington recently.
Dean Henderson has fully recovered from COVID-19 and is ready to get going again.
The keeper hasn’t played since last season’s closing-day victory at Wolves.
“Dean has not got the after-effects of the tiredness any more so that's very positive,” Ole added.
