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: 11 December 2019


Nemanja Matic will feature in Manchester United’s UEFA Europa League game against AZ Alkmaar, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed.

The Serbian midfielder hasn’t played since the reverse fixture in the Hague at the beginning of October but is in line for a return when we host the Dutch side on Thursday night.

“Yeah, he’s fit and is due to be involved,” Ole said in his pre-match press conference.

However, Matic’s midfield counterpart Paul Pogba has not yet recovered from the ankle injury which has kept him out of action since the Arsenal game at the end of September.

Solskjaer has previously said the France World Cup winner could be involved over the busy festive fixture period, but Thursday’s clash comes too early for him.

“He’s working hard to get fit and hopefully we can get him back on the pitch,” the boss added.

Diogo Dalot
Diogo Dalot could be back for United soon.

Right-back Diogo Dalot, who last played for the Reds on 6 October, is still on the comeback trail after injury and won’t play in the match which will decide whether we finish first or second in Group L.

“He’s just had one day of training so it’s too early for Diogo.”

Marcos Rojo has been absent since the start of November.

However, Marcos Rojo could be in contention to play next week, in games against Colchester and Watford.

Long-term absentees Eric Bailly and Tim Fosu-Mensah are also set to give Solskjaer a fitness boost when they join up with the rest of the team at the Aon Training Complex.

“Rojo is hopefully back next week. Eric and Timothy are training with the team from next week onwards.

“We're getting better and better in that respect. In January, I reckon we will have many of them match fit.”

Eric Bailly is on the path to a return after knee surgery in July.
