Manchester United responded to last week's 4-0 thrashing at Crystal Palace with a much better performance against Arsenal over the weekend despite falling to a 1-0 defeat.

Leandro Trossard scored the game's only goal in the first-half as Mikel Arteta's men returned to the top of the Premier League table. United showed glimpses of quality against top opponents but they were unable to get on the scoresheet.

Erik ten Hag's men remain eighth in the table, three points off Chelsea in the Europa Conference League spot. Newcastle, who are also three points above United, come to Old Trafford on Wednesday looking to confirm their place in Europe next season.

Lose on Wednesday and United's chances of finishing in the European places would be all but over. So with that being said, here is a full round-up of all the latest United injury news.

Marcus Rashford

Injury: Knock.

Rashford has now missed the last four games for United after suffering a knock in the FA Cup semi-final win over Coventry City. Ten Hag had indicated he expected the forward to play on Sunday but he was missing from the squad.

What Erik ten Hag said: "In the last days we trained with Rashy but he didn’t make it."

Possible return date: vs Newcastle United (May 15).

Bruno Fernandes

Injury: Hand.

Like McTominay, Fernandes also missed the trip to Palace. He, too, has trained this week and could be available for selection.

What Ten Hag said: "Yesterday, Bruno trained for two days but it was not far enough to recover from his injury to get back in the team."

Possible return date: vs Newcastle United (May 15).


Injury: Knee.

Amad was forced off with 20 minutes remaining with an injury. The forward has since confirmed it was a merely a knock and he had not suffered a serious issue.

What Amad said: Taking to social media following the defeat to Arsenal, Amad wrote:"The knee to knee in the first half bothered me in the second half. Otherwise, I’m fine."

Possible return date: vs Newcastle United (May 15).

Harry Maguire

Injury: Muscle.

United, last Sunday, confirmed Maguire had suffered a muscle injury in training and will be sidelined for 'about three weeks'. It is hoped he will be available for the FA Cup final at Wembley on May 25.

Possible return date: vs Manchester City (May 25).

Lisandro Martinez

Injury: Calf.

Martinez was pictured participating back in first-team training on Thursday, offering a glimmer a hope that he could return against Arsenal. However, Ten Hag has confirmed the visit of the Gunners will come too soon for the Argentine, despite him requesting to be involved.

Possible return date: vs Newcastle United (May 15).

Raphael Varane

Injury: Muscle.

Varane has been absent since United were beaten 4-3 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on April 4. Ten Hag hasn't issued an update of note on the Frenchman recently.

Possible return date: Unknown.

Victor Lindelof

Injury: Hamstring.

Lindelof sustained a hamstring injury little more than a month ago, forced off in United's 1-1 draw with Brentford on March 30. Issuing an update a few days later, United confirmed they expected the Swede to be sidelined for 'at least a month'. It remains to be seen when he may return.

Possible return date: May.

Willy Kambwala

Injury: Unknown.

Having last featured against Bournemouth in the middle of April, the defender came off the bench against Arsenal.

Possible return date: Returned

Luke Shaw

Injury: Muscle.

Shaw has endured a season to forget because of a string of injuries. He has been sidelined since the second half of February and Ten Hag, on Friday, confirmed he has suffered a further setback.

The United boss said: "Luke Shaw had a setback in his process as well but there is still hope and he will fight to be available for the [FA Cup] final.

Possible return date: vs Manchester City (May 25).

Tyrell Malacia

Injury: Knee.

Malacia has not played for United since the final day of last season because of a knee injury that required surgery. Ten Hag does not expect him to return before the end of the season, meaning the earliest United fans could see him in action again will be pre-season.

Speaking in March, 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.

Despite not revealing the specifics of his injury in his pre-match press conference, Ten Hag confirmed that Mount will miss the visit of Arsenal after being forced out of training on Thursday. "I have to report unfortunately yesterday Mason Mount fell out, so he will not be available for Sunday," said the United boss.

Possible return date: Unknown.

Anthony Martial

Injury: Groin.

Martial returned to team training around a week ago, boosting his chances of featuring before the end of the season. He was not included in the matchday squad against Palace.

Possible return date: vs Arsenal (May 12).
