More bad injury news
The injury problems are mounting for Manchester United and there is a serious lack of depth at the full-back position.
Tyrell Malacia and Luke Shaw are out on the left, and Diogo Dalot has been covering at left-back at times.
Sergio Reguilon was signed on loan to cover on the left, and now United are down to just Reguilon and Dalot as the only fit full-backs.
It is possible Victor Lindelof or Lisandro Martinez could be moved to cover, however, they were the two starting centre-backs at the weekend.
