Manchester United will host Wolverhampton Wanderers in a Premier League clash tomorrow, and manager Erik ten Hag has delivered fitness updates on Raphael Varane and Marcus Rashford.
The French centre-back has been out since the first leg of Man United’s Europa League loss to Sevilla on April 13. He suffered a foot injury in the first half.
Rashford picked up a knock this week despite United having no games. He started and completed United’s last match against West Ham United.
Ten Hag said (via Man Utd’s official website): “He (Rashford) has a problem, an injury on his leg, so he is a big question mark for tomorrow.
“But we are happy Rapha Varane is back. [Rashford] is doubtful, more than doubtful. So [there is] a big question mark.”
United have missed Varane since the injury. Ten Hag has used Luke Shaw at centre-back to partner Victor Lindelof, with captain Harry Maguire underperforming.
Varane’s return will allow Shaw to return to his customary left-back role.
They will miss Rashford tomorrow. The 25-year-old has netted 29 goals this season. He is a massive reason why United sit in fourth position.
However, there was more positive news for United, with Alejandro Garnacho fit to face Wolves.
The 18-year-old has battled back from an injury and made the squad for the loss to the Hammers last week.
Ten Hag said Garnacho has benefited from a week of training with the first team and is ready to help them.
“He has one more week training – definitely,” Erik added. “Yeah, so he is available, and we have seen he can bring something extra in the team.”
Scott McTominay and Tom Heaton have been out for a while and will miss this game. Donny van de Beek and Lisandro Martinez are out for the season.
