Man United are in major need of an upturn in fortunes after the international break.

A poor start to the season has seen them beaten by both Tottenham and Arsenal, while Erik ten Hag’s side have proven unconvincing even in wins against Wolves and Nottingham Forest.

After the break, United host Brighton before travelling to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, difficult games for a manager under pressure as it is.

With that in mind, ten Hag could do with having some of his key players back from injury.

Here’s an update on the latest Man United injuries.

Lisandro Martinez

So important to the way United build up from the back, concern was raised when he came off with a foot problem against Arsenal.

Not involved for Argentina despite being called up, Argentine manager Lionel Scaloni assured fans Martinez was fit.

“Licha, as you know, had an issue with his feet. In their last game [Arsenal vs Manchester United], he was in pain and went out [was subbed] for precaution. They have done studies and he’s well.”

Potential return date: Saturday 16 September 2023 vs Brighton

Sofyan Amrabat

Deadline day signing Sofyan Amrabat was forced to pull out of the Morocco squad for their games against Liberia and Burkina Faso, sparking worries the midfielder had arrived on loan from Fiorentina injured.

Still, Atlas Lions boss Walid Regragui insists that was only a matter of precaution, raising hope Amrabat will make his debut on Saturday.

Victor Lindelof

Another defender in Lindelof came off against Arsenal too, albeit due to illness rather than injury. Involved for Sweden over the break, it seems almost certain he will be in contention for the Brighton game.

Mason Mount

Summer signing Mount is yet to really get going as a United player and has missed their last two games with a hamstring problem.

The England international, however, is likely to feature after the international break.
