‘If he is injured or it’s just super-accumulation of fatigue in the muscles, I don’t know.’

Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are also still out, with United facing a mini-crisis in defence as Marcos Rojo was recently ruled out for the rest of the season.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is also out for the remainder of the campaign after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the recent win over Anderlecht.
