Man United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. West Ham

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

Manchester United will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in the Premier League when they continue their season at home to West Ham United on Sunday night.

The Red Devils recorded a 2-0 victory over rivals Manchester City last weekend to return to second position in the table, but they are 14 points behind Pep Guardiola's side at this stage.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were also in Europa League action on Thursday night, drawing 1-1 with AC Milan in the first leg of their last-16 tie at Old Trafford.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Man United's injury and suspension news ahead of the match with West Ham, who are currently fifth in the table.


Juan Mata

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

Man United are still without Juan Mata due to an unspecified issue, and it is currently unclear when the experienced attacker - out of contract this summer - will be able to return.


Phil Jones

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

Phil Jones has not played for Man United for over a year due to a long-term knee injury, but the centre-back is in the final stages of his recovery and could potentially be available before the end of the season.


Paul Pogba

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

Paul Pogba was forced off the field in the first half of the clash with Everton on February 6 after picking up a thigh problem. The France international was expected back in early March, but Solskjaer recently said that the midfielder would be out for 'a few more weeks'.


Edinson Cavani

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Knock
Possible return date: March 14 (vs. West Ham)

Edinson Cavani made his return from a muscular problem against Crystal Palace in the league on March 3 but has missed the last two matches with a knock, and he remains a doubt for Sunday's contest.


Donny van de Beek

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: March 14 (vs. West Ham)

Van de Beek has recently been on the sidelines with a muscular problem, with his last outing coming in the middle of February. The issue is not thought to be serious, but the Netherlands international was again absent against Milan on Thursday and remains a doubt for the clash with West Ham.


Marcus Rashford

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: March 14 (vs. West Ham)

Marcus Rashford missed out against Milan due to an ankle problem that he picked up in the Manchester derby last weekend. The England international is expected to return for next week's second leg with Milan, but he faces a battle to be fit for the clash with the Hammers.


Anthony Martial

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Hip
Possible return date: March 14 (vs. West Ham)

Anthony Martial was forced off at the field at the interval of Thursday's clash with Milan due to a hip problem, and the France international will undergo a scan to determine the extent of the damage.


David de Gea

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Personal
Possible return date: March 14 (vs. West Ham)

David de Gea recently returned to Spain following the birth of his first child, but Solskjaer has revealed that the goalkeeper is now back in the country. The Spain international is quarantining at home, though, and is therefore unlikely to be available to face the Hammers.
