Manchester United XI v Bournemouth: Expected line-up, confirmed team news, most recent Marcus Rashford injury
United’s top scorer missed last weekend’s win over Wolves and although he returned to training this week he is now struggling with illness and could miss the Vitality Stadium again.
There is better news for United, however: Raphael Varane is fully fit and available again and Scott McTominay is back in first-team training after missing the last six weeks through injury.
“So positive, Varane is definitely available,” Ten Hag said on Friday.
“Scott attended training. If we find that training is going well, he will be there.”
Should Rashford’s illness rule him out, Alejandro Garnacho is pushing to join the side for the first time in more than two months. The 18-year-old made his comeback from injury in the last game against Wolves, coming off the bench and scoring a late goal. He is an option to replace Jadon Sancho on the left wing.
Other than that, no big surprises are expected in United’s line-up as they look to take another step towards a top-four finish. Aaron Wan-Bissaka is likely to replace Diogo Dalot at right-back again while Anthony Martial is likely to keep his place up front.
Marcel Sabitzer, Lisandro Martinez and Donny van de Beek are all absent and will not return before the end of the season.
Expected Man United XI: DeGea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Lindelof, Shaw; Casemiro, Ericsen; Antony, Fernandes, Sancho; martial
