Manchester United Injuries & Suspensions

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.

Last updated: 20 January 2020


Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford will be out for at least six weeks, after he suffered a stress fracture to his back in the Emirates FA Cup win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 22-year-old was forced off just 16 minutes after coming on as a substitute, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed he won’t feature before the end of February.

“He won't be back until after the mid-season break,” Ole told Sky Sports after the 2-0 defeat to Liverpool, which Rashford missed as a result of the issue, on Sunday 19 January.

“I don't know long it is, I'm not a doctor but normally a stress fracture is six weeks to heal and then he needs some recovery or some rehab after that probably.”

Rashford won't play again before the winter break, confirmed Solskjaer.

Defenders Eric Bailly and Tim Fosu-Mensah are fit and available to play after recovering from summer knee operations.

Bailly was an unused substitute at Anfield, nine days after he and Fosu-Mensah featured for the Under-23s against Newcastle United on Friday 10 January.

Eric Bailly completed 61 minutes on his return to action for the Under-23s.
While Luke Shaw returned for our visit to Liverpool after four matches out injured, fellow defenders Axel Tuanzebe and Marcos Rojo remain on the treatment table.

Tuanzebe has spent a month on the sidelines, while Rojo hasn’t played since the win over Brighton & Hove Albion in early November.

“Axel had a setback but he’s working his way towards fitness.

“Marcos is still not ready. He had a bad calf injury that took longer than we expected.”

Axel Tuanzebe
Tuanzebe hasn't played since the Colchester Carabao Cup game in December.

Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba are still injured, with precise return dates yet to be confirmed by the manager.


There are no current suspensions for the Manchester United first team.
