Manchester United injury, suspension list ahead of first game back

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their first game back after lockdown - a trip to face Tottenham Hotspur.

Exactly 100 days after the last top-flight game, Premier League football will return on June 17 as elite-level sport looks to recover in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Manchester United will have to wait a little bit longer - until the weekend of June 19-21 - for their first game back, and they will be keen to pick up where they left off.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were on a run of 11 matches unbeaten across all competitions prior to the stoppage of play, and are now able to welcome the previously-injured Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and others back into the fold for the run-in.

The Red Devils face a trip to Tottenham Hotspur in their first game back - a reunion with former boss Jose Mourinho - and here Sports Mole rounds up their latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
