Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leicester City

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

Manchester United will once again hope to delay Manchester City's coronation as Premier League champions when they welcome Leicester City to Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side enjoyed yet another comeback victory at the weekend as they prevailed 3-1 at Aston Villa, with Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani netting in the second 45 after Bertrand Traore's opener.

The Red Devils are now 10 points behind Man City with a game in hand, but defeat to Leicester would hand their arch rivals the title for the 2020-21 campaign.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Man United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: Unknown

Harry Maguire's ever-present run in the United team came to an end as he was forced off with a suspected ankle injury in the second half at Villa Park. Solskjaer will hope that his captain is not sidelined for too long, but the 48-hour turnaround makes it extremely difficult to see him featuring against Leicester.

Anthony Martial

Possible return date: Unknown

Anthony Martial is making good progress from the serious knee injury he sustained on international duty with France, but it is still too early to see the forward return to the pitch.
