Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leeds United

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

Manchester United take on fierce rivals Leeds United on Sunday seeking a sixth Premier League victory in a row.

The Red Devils battled to a late 3-1 win over Burnley at Old Trafford last time out to keep their good run of form going.

That win moved United back to within eight points of leaders Manchester City, meaning that their title hopes are not over just yet.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the visit of mid-table Leeds.

Anthony Martial

Possible return date: Unknown

Anthony Martial injured his knee on international duty with France last month. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said last week that it would be a "surprise" if the forward returns to action before the end of the season.

Phil Jones has yet to feature for United this season because of a knee injury. Like Martial, long-serving defender Jones is not expected to put on the red jersey again before the summer.

Eric Bailly

Type of injury: Coronavirus
Possible return date: April 25 (vs. Burnley)

Eric Bailly has missed United's five matches since the international break after testing positive for coronavirus while away with the Ivory Coast. However, having returned to England last week, Bailly is now in contention to return to the matchday squad against Leeds.


United have no players suspended for Sunday's trip to Elland Road.
