Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, Mason Mount—Manchester United injury updates and comeback dates

According to manchestereveningnews, Erik ten Hag still has numerous Manchester United players out injured. United beat Luton Town 2-1 on Sunday in the Premier League. Rasmus Hojlund’s first-half double gave Ten Hag and Co. the win and closed the distance on the top four.

United are sixth in the league, five points behind Aston Villa in fourth. The Reds play Fulham at Old Trafford in the Premier League this weekend before going to Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup fifth round a few days later. MEN Sport has examined United’s injury list and when players will return for crucial fixtures.

Lisandro Martinez

February 4 saw Lisandro Martinez’s second knee injury versus West Ham. At the time, the centre-back was set to miss eight more weeks. Before going to the treatment room, Martinez had just returned from a knee injury layoff. Ten Hag and co. hope the defender recovers quickly before a vital season stage.

Possible Chelsea (A) return: April 3.

Luke Shaw

Luke Shaw seemed injured and was replaced in the last minutes of the first half against Luton. The left-back ran straight down the tunnel following the switch, but Ten Hag couldn’t diagnose the ailment.

Ten Hag has relied on Shaw in the United defence, and the Dutchman hopes to have him back on the pitch soon. In a media interview later this week, Ten Hag will likely discuss Shaw’s health.
