Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Club Brugge

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Europa League clash with Club Brugge on Thursday.

Manchester United travel to Belgium on Thursday evening for the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie with Club Brugge.

The Red Devils cruised through the group stages and are the second favourites to win the competition behind Italian giants Inter Milan.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men enter the knockout rounds in good domestic form after winning three and drawing one of their last four matches, including a 2-0 win over Chelsea on Monday.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Brugge.

Paul Pogba

Status: Out
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: February 23 (vs. Watford)

Paul Pogba underwent ankle surgery last month and only returned to training this week, meaning this match will come too soon for his return. The France international continues to be strongly linked with a move away from Old Trafford but will be at the club until at least the summer.

Marcus Rashford

Status: Out
Type of injury: Back
Possible return date: Unknown

Marcus Rashford is not expected to return until at least March having suffered a stress fracture to his back against Wolves on January 15. The England international had been in fine form for the Red Devils, scoring 19 times in all competitions this term from a wide position.

Scott McTominay

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: February 20 (vs. Club Brugge)

Scott McTominay has been on the sidelines since picking up a knee injury against Newcastle United on Boxing Day. The Scotland international was recently ruled out for "a few months" by Solskjaer, but he took part in warm-weather training last week and is closing in on a comeback.

Axel Tuanzebe

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: February 20 (vs. Club Brugge)

Axel Tuanzebe has been out with a hamstring problem since the middle of December. The defender is thought to be making good progress in his recovery, however, and could be available for the clash with Brugge this week.

Victor Lindelof

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Illness
Possible return date: February 20 (vs. Club Brugge)

Victor Lindelof missed out on selection against Chelsea on Monday due to illness, but it is not thought to be serious enough to keep him out for a second game running.


United have no players suspended for Thursday's trip to Belgium.
