About Football Express UK

All the very latest on the Manchester United injury front ahead of Saturday’s clash with Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

Manchester United will be hoping to build on their dramatic 2-1 win over Brentford when they resume their Premier League campaign against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday evening.

United signed off for the international break in dramatic fashion, scoring two stoppage-time goals against the Bees – both through Scott McTominay – to secure a much-needed three points. The defeat was marred, though, by another suspected injury concern, this time to Victor Lindelof.

The Swede, who started at left-back, was forced off after 71 minutes, generating further concern for boss Erik ten Hag. Fortunately, he started Sweden’s abandoned clash with Belgium on Monday night, suggesting that his injury is not as bad as first feared.

United are missing their best players

The same, too, he said for Casemiro, who started Brazil’s 2-0 defeat to Uruguay in 2026 World Cup qualifying in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

He played the full 90 minutes, just days after suffering an ankle injury in a 1-1 draw against Venezuela,

Meaning he could also fit to face the Blades at the weekend.

With all of that in mind, MEN Sport, ahead of United’s campaign getting back underway,

Has taken a close look at the latest on the injury front with a detailed round-up.

Wan-Bissaka has missed each of United’s last six matches with a hamstring injury,

Last appearing as a late substitute in the 3-1 home defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion last month. He was omitted from the starting line-up that day because of illness and got injured during his cameo role.

The Frenchman was absent for the third time in the last five Premier League matches against Brentford,

Missing out because of a “minor issue”, according to club sources. Ten Hag indicated that it was nothing serious, meaning he should be available this weekend.
