Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Watford

Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for a depleted Manchester United ahead of their return to Premier League action against Watford.

Manchester United return to Premier League action after the international break with a home match against Watford in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Red Devils lost two games in a row for the first time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer immediately before the break, seeing them drop out of the top four and suffer elimination from the FA Cup.

Victory this weekend would lift them back into the Champions League places with Arsenal not in action until Monday night, but a third successive defeat would leave them with plenty of work to do over the final seven games of the season.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Solskjaer's side.
