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

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Arsenal.

Manchester United will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils will enter this weekend's contest off the back of a 5-0 win over RB Leipzig in the Champions League, which made it two victories from two European matches this season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side shared the points with Chelsea in their last league game on October 24, though, and are currently 15th in the table with seven points to show from their five matches.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Arsenal, who have lost their last two league games to Manchester City and Leicester City.

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

Versatile defender Phil Jones has not featured for United since January due to a long-term knee problem, and the Englishman could have played his last game for the club, having been left out of their Premier League and Champions League squads.

Eric Bailly

Status: Out
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: November 21 (vs. West Bromwich Albion)

Eric Bailly, who has struggled with various injuries throughout his United career, is set to spend the next three to four weeks on the sidelines recovering from a muscular issue and might not be available for selection until after the November international break.

Jesse Lingard

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

Jesse Lingard, who is yet to make a Premier League appearance this season, is currently on the sidelines with an unspecified problem. Solskjaer said last week that the Englishman will be out "for a few weeks", although it is unclear when he might be available for selection once again.

Alex Telles

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Coronavirus
Possible return date: November 1 (vs. Arsenal)

Solskjaer revealed after Wednesday's clash with Leipzig that Alex Telles had returned a positive coronavirus test. It is unclear when the Brazilian was diagnosed with the virus, though, and therefore a return date has not been specified. It seems unlikely that he will be available on Sunday afternoon despite already missing the games with Chelsea and Leipzig following his debut against PSG.


Anthony Martial

Status: Banned
Possible return date: November 4 (vs. Istanbul Basaksehir)

Martial will complete a three-match domestic suspension this weekend following his red card against Tottenham Hotspur on October 4. The ban only applies to domestic games, though, and he will therefore be available for the Champions League clash with Istanbul Basaksehir on November 1. Martial's next Premier League appearance, meanwhile, could be against Everton on November 7.
