Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Huddersfield Town

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League fixture with Huddersfield Town.

Manchester United head into Sunday's Premier League encounter at Huddersfield Town knowing that they require victory to ensure that they remain in the hunt for a top-four place in the standings.

United find themselves three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with two matches remaining, but the Blues possess a better goal difference than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

The North-West giants had the chance to move level on points with Chelsea on Sunday afternoon, but the two teams played out a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for United ahead of visiting the John Smith's Stadium.
