Manchester United injury, suspension list vs. Luton Town

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Tuesday's EFL Cup third-round tie with Luton Town.

Manchester United will be looking to put their disappointing start to the campaign behind them when they head to Luton Town in the third round of the EFL Cup on Tuesday.

The Red Devils kicked off their Premier League season with a 3-1 loss at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday, making it back-to-back defeats stretching into last season.

United now face a potential banana skin fixture at Luton, who have a perfect record of four wins from four in 2020-21.

Ahead of the midweek clash at Kenilworth Road, Sports Mole rounds up United's latest injury and suspension news.

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

While Solskjaer is yet to reveal any comeback date for Alex Tuanzebe, the academy graduate is said to be making good progress in his recovery. As it stands, the centre-back may feature at some point in October.

Nemanja Matic

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Fitness
Possible return date: September 22 (vs. Luton)

Nemanja Matic was not part of United's squad for their opening game defeat to Palace owing to fitness concerns. The Serbian midfielder had just four training sessions before Saturday's match, so Solskjaer opted to leave him out of the 18-man squad.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Fitness
Possible return date: September 22 (vs. Luton)

That was also the case for right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka, whom Solskjaer was unwilling to risk. This cup tie should prove the ideal game for Solskjaer to integrate players such as Wan-Bissaka and Matic back into the starting lineup.

Sergio Romero

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Fitness
Possible return date: September 22 (vs. Luton)

Sergio Romero has yet to return to training with United this summer as he closes in on a move away from the club. The goalkeeper has been given time off by Solskjaer and is unlikely to be part of the squad on Tuesday.

Phil Jones

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

Having failed to make the squad for the latter stages of the Europa League, Phil Jones has been continuing his recovery from a knee injury behind the scenes. It is highly unlikely that the Englishman will be involved in the 18-man squad for this fixture.


United have no players suspended for this encounter.
