Manchester United will be looking to qualify for Europe in their final Premier League game of the season, with an away trip to Brighton on Sunday afternoon.

Erik ten Hag's side bounced back from the defeat against Arsenal by beating Newcastle United 3-2 at Old Trafford on Wednesday. The sides are now locked on 57 points ahead of the final day.

The prospect of playing European football next season remains a possibility, though United will have to beat Brighton and hope Newcastle drop points in their clash with Brentford. Alternatively, they could still qualify for Europa League if they get the better of Manchester City in the FA Cup final on May 25.

Ahead of the club's remaining two games, United remain without several members of the first-team squad and will be hopeful of at least a small selection returning their visit to Wembley.

MEN Sport has taken a look at the latest from the treatment room.

Luke Shaw

Injury: Muscle.

Luke Shaw will miss Sunday's match with Brighton and Ten Hag is unsure as to whether he will have recovered for the FA Cup final.

What Ten Hag said: "Luke is more complicated in this moment, let’s say it’s less of a chance he will make it but still a very small chance. He had a setback, now we have to find out how far it is."

Possible return date: Manchester City (FA Cup final) - May 25

Raphael Varane

Injury: Muscle.

Varane could return against Brighton on Sunday after announcing he would be leaving the club in the summer.

What Ten Hag said: "Licha had a good session now as well, others on the pitch like Rapha, Victor Lindelof, we have to see how far they are on Sunday. Tomorrow we’re off, Saturday we have training."

Possible return date: Brighton (A) - May 19

Victor Lindelof

Injury: Hamstring.

What Ten Hag said: "Victor Lindelof, we have to see how far he is on Sunday. Tomorrow we’re off, Saturday we have training."

Harry Maguire

Injury: Muscle.

Maguire is expected to miss the final match of the Premier League season but could return at Wembley.

What Ten Hag said: "For England I can’t say but for the cup final we’re working on it. Harry Maguire has a fair chance that he will be available."

Possible return date: Manchester City (N) - May 25

Tyrell Malacia

Injury: Knee.

Malacia faces a race against time to feature in the last two games of the season. However, no timeframe has been put on his return.

What Ten Hag said: "I think it's going to be difficult for this season to be available. He will fight, he's back on the pitch, but not in the team and the process had some setbacks and is still going really slowly forward, and the season is going to an end."

Possible return date: Unknown.

Mason Mount

Injury: Unknown.

The 25-year-old has missed most of the campaign with a calf injury, but his problem this time around is unclear.

Possible return date: Unknown.

The Frenchman has returned to training this week after a lengthy injury lay-off. He has not played since December and had to undergo surgery on a groin issue.

What Ten Hag said: "Anthony was partly in the team training."
