Manchester United take on Leeds United on Wednesday night at Old Trafford looking to record a 14th successive home win in all competitions.

The Red Devils will have to win the game without a number of key players who are unavailable for the match through injury and suspension.

Erik ten Hag told a press conference this would be no excuse, commenting: “This squad, all players in [it], are Man United capable, so they have to perform tomorrow, and we have to win the games no matter who is coming on the pitch.”

Here is a run through of all the absentees ahead of Manchester United’s midweek match…

Casemiro: Suspended

Casemiro is suspended after receiving a red card in Manchester United’s match with Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Erik ten Hag confirmed United won’t appeal his suspension, commenting: “It’s not the right decision but I don’t think we have a chance in a legal process.”

This is the first of a three match Premier League ban Casemiro will face over the next fortnight.


Antony is Manchester United’s newest injury. He was forced off in the second half against Crystal Palace.

Premier Injuries describe him sustaining a ‘lower leg injury’ and could make a return for this weekend’s away game at Leeds.

Scott McTominay: Injured

Scott McTominay is still out with an injury. Erik ten Hag confirmed the midfielder is ‘not involved’ against Leeds.

Premier Injuries project he faces another fortnight out.

Anthony Martial: Injured

Anthony Martial suffered a setback after making his return against Nottingham Forest a week ago.

Premier Injuries do not currently list a potential return date for the striker.

Christian Eriksen: Injured

Midfielder Christian Eriksen suffered an ankle injury in Manchester United’s FA Cup win over Reading.

A scan has subsequently revealed Eriksen will be out until either April or May.

Donny van de Beek: Injured

Donny van de Beek sustained a knee injury in Manchester United’s win over Bournemouth in early January.

He had to undergo surgery and has been ruled out for the rest of the season, although remains named in United’s Europa League squad.
