Sanchez, Herrera And Matic To Return Against West Ham? Man Utd Injury Update

Man Utd injury update: Sanchez, Herrera and Matic to return against West Ham? | Football | Sport

Manchester United will be looking to bounce back to winning ways tomorrow after suffering a 1-0 defeat to Barcelona on Wednesday in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

But returning to domestic action after European competition has not proved fruitful for United this season.

The Red Devils have not won any of the last four Premier League games that immediately followed a Champions League match (D1 L3).

However, their home form has been impressive, having lost just once at Old Trafford this season (against Tottenham in August) where they are also undefeated in their last 13 league games.

West Ham, meanwhile, have not won an away league match since late December and have scored just once in their last seven away games.

One player who will be looking to keep his place against West Ham is midfielder Scott McTominay, who put on a stellar display against Barcelona in midweek.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was thoroughly impressed and believes the player will continue to get better.

“Scott McTominay was fantastic,” said Solskjaer.

“Every time he plays for us he is improving. He’s a great athlete, wins his challenges and is quick on his feet. He started settling us to be fair.”

Man Utd team news and injury update
Three United stars could be back in the side for the visit of West Ham tomorrow.

Nemanja Matic has missed the last few weeks because of a muscular injury and wasn’t quite ready to make the bench against Barcelona.

But the Serbian, along with fellow midfielder Ander Herrera, could be involved against the Hammers.

Herrera also missed the clash with the La Liga champions but his injury is not thought to be severe.

Alexis Sanchez is another star who looks set to be recalled to the squad this weekend.

“He’s done lots of recovery work and is injury-free,” Solskjaer said of the Chilean.

“He’ll step up and train with the team, probably in the squad for West Ham on Saturday and then let’s see if he plays.”

Both Eric Bailly and Antonio Valencia are still recovering from injuries and are not expected to feature.
