Manchester United team news

Here is all the latest Manchester United team news before their FA Cup meeting with Nottingham Forest.

In a major blow to Man United, Rasmus Hojlund could be sidelined until after next month’s international break after picking up a muscle injury:

“It’s a small injury, two to three weeks, that’s what happened,” Ten Hag said on Hojlund. “That is the risk playing high intensity, training; it’s not a big injury, but he has to wait now for two to three weeks.”

Casemiro is set to be assessed in the coming days after a clash of heads with Fulham’s Harrison Reed during Saturday’s loss at Old Trafford.

The midfielder was forced off after the collision early in the second half after receiving extensive treatment on the pitch. If the Brazilian has a concussion, he is expected to miss out vs Forest.

Finally, Luke Shaw could be sidelined for the rest of the season. Shaw was forced off during the first half vs Luton earlier this month. United have since released a statement on the defender’s injury: “Luke Shaw has sustained a muscle injury and will be out for an extended period. Further assessment is still needed to determine the severity but we expect him to be absent for a few months.”
