Injuries are putting pressure on Manchester United’s squad heading into a crucial month.
Despite the midfield problems, there is some good news on the horizon surrounding a few long term absentees.
There are up to five Manchester United players who could be in contention to make the squad this weekend in the FA Cup against Wolves.
Here is a look at who could be in line to return to the United side…
Bailly was pictured back in training last week and rejoined the full squad in the week leading up to Christmas.
He is coming off a knee injury suffered in pre-season in China.
United’s defence has been poor in recent weeks and Bailly could bring some much needed improvement.
Tuanzebe was injured in the victory over Colchester and has not featured in squads since. United have kept details about his suspected thigh strain quiet.
Getting him back to face Wolves would be a major boost for United at a crucial stage of the season.
He has impressed when given opportunities in this stop-start season. His absence has meant Maguire and Lindelöf have not had a rest at all.
Dalot has been out for United since to defeat to Newcastle back in October.
He came through an under-19 friendly against AC Milan unscathed before the festive break and could be in contention to feature this weekend.
It would be a surprise if he does not feature in United’s squad against Wolves.
Fosu-Mensah is another of United’s players listed by PremierInjuries.com with the Wolves fixture as a return date.
He is recovering from an ACL injury suffered on loan at Fulham last season.
United’s lack of options in midfield might potentially lead to him being given an opportunity in the position.
Argentine defender Rojo has actually performed well when given opportunities this season.
The MEN reported he has been back in South America while in the final stages of his recovery from an injury suffered in November.
He should now be returning and if he is deemed to be fitter than Tunazebe or Bailly, he could be in line for a start against Wolves.
