Manchester United injury news

Here is all the latest Manchester United injury news ahead of their meeting with Wigan.

Erik ten Hag has confirmed that Lisandro Martinez will return to action this month. The defender has been out since September with a foot injury, but United are expected to receive a major boost in the next couple of weeks

The player himself also provided an update: “Well, I am really good, I am really good, honestly,” Martinez said at the end of December. “My rehab is going amazingly, in the way that I want, I am feeling strong, doing everything right.”

Casemiro is also expected to return for United in January, assuming he does not suffer any setbacks.

The Brazilian was taken off at half-time in the Carabao Cup defeat to Newcastle at the start of November and has been out with a hamstring injury since.

Mason Mount has made just four Premier League starts. A calf injury has kept Mount on the sidelines for nearly two months, but he returned to light training on the grass last week.
