Man Utd manager Erik ten Hag concerned by 'severe' injury as Marcus Rashford update provided

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has provided updates on injuries to several players ahead of their Europa League game against Sevilla.

United return to European action in the quarter-finals of the Europa League against Sevilla on Thursday, a side that knocked them out of the competition in 2020.

Ten Hag will be hoping his team can pick up even more silverware to add to the Carbao Cup which they lifted in February.

However, the Dutchman will have to cope without several key players who are sidelined through injury.

Both Luke Shaw and Alejandro Garnacho are also injured with the latter set to be out for a while.

Star goalscorer Marcus Rashford limped off during United’s 2-0 victory over Everton on Saturday leaving many fans concerned.

Ten Hag provided an update on the injury issues at Old Trafford ahead of the game.

What did he say?

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, he said: “Both [Shaw and Garnacho] are not available, definitely the injury to Garnacho is more severe but I expect Shaw back on shorter notice.

He didn’t give too much away when asked about the injury to Rashford, saying: “A few games, so that’s the statement. I can’t give more details on it because we don’t know.

“We’ll have to see how it develops.”

The Red Devils will have to make use of their squad on Thursday and it will mean fringe players will get the chance to show what they’re capable of.

Forward Anthony Martial scored in the league victory on Saturday and could start in place of Rashford.

However, Ten Hag may also opt to start Wout Weghorst and there could be a full return for Christian Eriksen.

Casemiro has also now served his four-match domestic suspension so he could also be involved again.

United are on course to qualify for next season's Champions League via their league standing, but lifting the Europa League would also be a backup method of qualification if they finish outside the top four.

The club last won the trophy in 2017 and finished runners-up in the 2021 final.
