Alejandro Garnacho set to play for Man Utd against West Ham following injury return

Manchester United youngster Alejandro Garnacho will be able to participate in their clash with West Ham United tomorrow.

The 18-year-old has been out with an injury he suffered against Southampton in March.

Garnacho has made 31 appearances for the club this season. He made his name in the club’s academy after leading them to last season’s Youth FA Cup title.

The former Atletico Madrid youth attacker has scored four goals and five assists this term since stepping up to the senior side.

His performances have led United to give him a five-year contract until 2028. He was called up to the Argentine national team but withdrew due to an injury.

Man United manager Erik ten Hag disclosed that Garnacho is back and could be in line to feature against the Hammers.

Ten Hag said (via Man United’s official website): “Maybe one player [to add]: Garnacho. I have to see.

“Maybe he can be involved, but we will have to see how the progress can go.”

Ten Hag had already announced that Scott McTominay and Raphael Varane will not be in the squad.

The Frenchman is ahead of schedule in his recovery and could face Manchester City in the FA Cup final.

Varane sustained his injury during the first leg of their Europa League clash with Sevilla. McTominay sustained his injury against Everton days earlier.

Lisandro Martinez is out for the rest of the season but will be back for the next campaign.

West Ham’s Gianluca Scamacca, Kurt Zouma and Vladimir Coufal will miss the game with injuries.

Declan Rice, Nayef Aguerd and Tomas Soucek will return after missing their last game against Manchester City.
