Man United handed major injury boost ahead of crucial Arsenal clash

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag could find himself in a positive predicament as he prepares for Sunday’s vital clash with Arsenal, with the Dutchman potentially welcoming back six of his injured stars – just in time to face off against Mikel Arteta’s side.

United will be keen on making a swift recovery following their recent 4-0 stuffing at the hands of Crystal Palace. on Monday night. The pressure is mounting as they seek an upset over Arsenal, who will be searching for a win as the race with Manchester City for the Premier League title hots up.

Arsenal are currently one point above City in the table, but they could find themselves in second place going into the game against United with Pep Guardiola’s side in action in Saturday’s early kick-off against Fulham. If they win that game, it will move them two points above the Gunners.

The return of key figures will undoubtedly be a significant morale boost for Ten Hag, particularly after expressing his concerns about the club’s injury crisis prior to the devastating loss to the Eagles. In discussing the unprecedented injury woes facing his team, Ten Hag admitted prior to the game: “For over 10 years I am managing, I never had this experience.

“So huge, so many injury issues, so I trust all my experience, it can happen once in 10 years. Hopefully now I have to wait another 10 to have so many injuries to deal with.”

Defenders Luke Shaw and Lisandro Martinez have also both returned to the training pitch. Their manager remains hopeful that they’ll join the squad before the season concludes. Given that they’ve been progressing well, they could potentially be included in the squad for the match vs Arsenal.
