Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leicester City

Sports Mole rounds up all of Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final trip to face Leicester City.

Manchester United will look to follow up their Europa League progress by reaching the semi-finals of the FA Cup when they take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

Paul Pogba returned from injury to score the winning goal against AC Milan on Thursday night, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still has a number of fitness concerns ahead of Man United's final game before the international break.

The Red Devils are aiming to reach the last four of the FA Cup for a record 31st time, but first must see off a team with whom they are also embroiled in a top-four battle.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Man United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.


Marcus Rashford

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: March 21 (vs. Leicester)

Marcus Rashford was taken off at half time in Milan due to a "twinge" in his ankle, but Solskjaer was quick to ease concerns over his fitness after the match and insisted that the decision was merely precautionary. Even so, the Man United boss admitted that it was "unlikely" Rashford would recover in time to start on Sunday.



Anthony Martial

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Hip
Possible return date: March 21 (vs. Leicester)

Anthony Martial was taken off at half time of the first leg against AC Milan and has missed the last two matches as a result of his hip injury. Solskjaer revealed that the Frenchman's injury has "not reacted how we hoped" to treatment, although he has been included in the France squad and should stand a good chance of being in contention this weekend.



Edinson Cavani

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: March 21 (vs. Leicester)

Reports suggest that frustration around Edinson Cavani is growing within the Man United camp as he has missed eight of the last nine games with a muscular problem. Solskjaer has revealed that Cavani is ruling himself out of action, insisting that the Uruguayan does not want to return until he feels 100% fit.



Eric Bailly

Possible return date: March 21 (vs. Leicester)

Eric Bailly also missed the trip to Milan after picking up a knock, and he remains a doubt for this one with the prospect of using the international break to fully recover.

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

Man United had initially hoped to have Juan Mata back from injury before the international break, although that will no longer be the case and the Spaniard will use the upcoming time to get back up to speed.
