Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag expects "more or less" to have the same squad available from the clash with Newcastle United for Wednesday's match with Chelsea.

Manchester United head coach Erik ten Hag is expecting "more or less" to have the same squad available from the clash with Newcastle United for Wednesday's match with Chelsea.

The Red Devils will be aiming to bounce back from their disappointing display and result against the Magpies in the Premier League when they welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford.

Ten Hag said that "there are some positives" when asked for an update on the club's injury situation but did not reveal whether any of the players who have been out could be back in the squad against the Blues.

Mason Mount is thought to have an outside chance of returning, as the playmaker was back in training ahead of the Newcastle match after overcoming a muscular issue.

"There are some positives. But not back already in the squad," Ten Hag told MUTV.

When asked whether it would be the same squad that was available for the 1-0 loss to Newcastle, the Man United head coach said: "More or less, yeah."

Tyrell Malacia remains unavailable for selection, with Man United revealing last week that he has been forced to undergo two separate knee operations since the end of last season.

Lisandro Martinez and Casemiro are also still out with foot and hamstring injuries respectively, but the pair could return before the end of the year.

Jonny Evans is close to making a comeback, with the Northern Ireland international in the latter stages of his recovery from a thigh problem, while Christian Eriksen is also not away from a return from a knee issue.

Amad Diallo is also still out due to the knee problem that he suffered over the summer, and it is unclear when the Ivory Coast international could be available for selection once again.

Jadon Sancho is still not involved with the first team at Old Trafford due to his falling-out with the manager, and he will again not feature against Chelsea on Wednesday night.

Man United have three straight home matches to come, welcoming Chelsea and Bournemouth in the Premier League, before Bayern Munich head to Old Trafford next week.

A record of eight wins and six defeats from 14 matches has seen the Red Devils collect 24 Premier League points this season, which has left them in seventh spot in the table, only five points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa.
