Manchester United team news: Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs Leicester City



man united vs leceister city

All you need to know ahead of the Premier League clash at Old Trafford today.

Manchester United and Leicester City open the curtain on the Premier League season on Friday night at Old Trafford, and for the home team, the new campaign will be a blessed relief after a turbulent summer.

Man Utd Injuries

United will not have six players injured for their first game of the season, and will even overlook those who may not be in shape after returning to camp.

Nemanja Matic has undergone surgery on an abdominal problem picked up in the World Cup, while Dalot has also been under the knife due to a knee problem.

Sergio Romero and Marcos Rojo also underwent surgeries after being injured in an international service, and as a result, Romero missed Argentina’s entire career in Russia.

Antonio Valencia left the preseason draw with San Jose Earthquakes for a calf injury, while Ander Herrera is out after developing a problem during the loss to Bayern Munich last Sunday.

Possible Man Utd Starting Line-Up

Mourinho could well name a lineup very similar to the one he took on the field against Bayern Munich last week, although he has the option of calling more than one of his late returners.
Players like Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Ashley Young have had less than a week of training after their progress until the last weekend of the World Cup and all three could be considered.
With injured Herrera, Mourinho will be forced to make at least one change, which will probably cause him to ask Pogba to step forward and start, while Lukaku and Young can start if the coach decides to bypass Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw.
Although the club was unable to add a center back during the transfer window, Mourinho still has many options in that department, and Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are among the alternatives to Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof.
Meanwhile, Matteo Darmian remains a substitute for Valencia even though he is likely to leave before the end of the month, and Andreas Pereira must make his first league start for the club after loan periods in Granada and Valencia.

Arsenal will reportedly make a third bid for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney in the coming days.

This is according to the publication from Daily Record which revealed that the Gunners are preparing a third bid for the Scottish international left-back.

It was revealed that Arsenal will make another £25m for the player with better payment arrangement.

Arsenal had earlier made a second bid of £25m which included £7m in add-ons.

Celtic swiftly turned down that second bid which had just £18m in upfront payment.

Arsenal will offer more in upfront payment from the £25m to meet the financial demand from Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.

The Gunners have identified Kieran Tierney as their major transfer target in their quest to sign a new left-back this summer.

They had earlier made a first bid of just £15m for the player.

Arsenal left-backs Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Mineral were unable to meet up with what was demanded by club manager Unai Emery in that position hence the need to sign a new player for that position.

Kieran Tierney, 22, has been recovering from hernia and hip problems but he’s expected to be fit by next month.

He wants the move to Arsenal but the Scottish player won’t force the transfer.
