Sports Mole rounds up all of Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's Premier League clash with Sheffield United.

Manchester United will be looking to keep their momentum going when they host Sheffield United in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

The Red Devils beat Liverpool 3-2 on Sunday to advance through to the fourth round of the FA Cup and extend their unbeaten run to five matches.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are in the middle of an intense run of fixtures, with focus now returning to league matters and this midweek visit of bottom side Sheffield United.
