Manchester United injury update: Antony, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford latest news and return dates

The striker returned from illness to come off the bench to score in a 4-1 thrashing of Chelsea on Thursday, but Antony and Luke Shaw had already been withdrawn to add to Erik ten Hag’s worries.

The pair will now be assessed but join Marcel Sabitzer, Lisandro Martinez, Phil Jones and Donny van de Beek on the list of absentees.

Here is your latest update from Manchester United injuries and return dates…



The striker was left in agony after a seemingly clean challenge from Trevoh Chalobah, eventually being dragged from the pitch in tears after initially trying to continue.

After the match, Ten Hag said the injury looked “serious” and Antony will undergo scans throughout the weekend to find out the extent of the damage. There is now a serious doubt for the FA Cup final on June 3.

Luke Shaw

Another victim of Chelsea’s victory, the defender was taken off at half-time with a suspected back problem. Much like Antony, Shaw will be assessed over the weekend but is unlikely to be risked on Sunday against Fulham in any case with the game now a dead rubber.

An update can be expected early next week on the left-back’s fitness ahead of a huge FA Cup final.

Marcus Rashford

In more positive news, Rashford is back after overcoming illness to score against Chelsea.

Rashford missed the win over Bournemouth after being brought down, having only recently shaken off an injury, so it was a frustrating setback.

But the striker looked sharp on his return and should be fine for United’s final two games of the season.


Lisandro Martinez

Argentina defender Martinez is on the road to recovery after his season ended with a metatarsal fracture in his foot in April.

The injury required surgery, which he underwent with a return date scheduled for the start of pre-season.

Martinez has been granted permission to return to his hometown of Gualeguay in recent days, before heading back to Manchester this week.

Marcel Sabitzer

A knee injury will keep Sabitzer out of the final games of the season, after the Austrian brought up the issue last week.

It could spell the end of his career at United, with Ten Hag being asked about the loanee’s future at the club for the expiry date of his spell this summer.

But the manager said such a question was not his ‘goal’ ahead of the game against Bournemouth.

Phil Jones

A chronic knee problem means Jones has now played his last game for the club.

United confirmed last week that the 31-year-old is due to leave this summer when his contract expires.

Ten Hag also revealed he never watched Jones train for 20 minutes during his first session in charge in June last year.

Donny van de Beek

Van de Beek returned to training after suffering a season-ending injury in January.

For the past few days, the Dutchman has been working in the United squad after knee surgery. However, he is unlikely to play a role in the final games of the campaign with the pre-season his focus.

He revealed: “I can do almost anything already, we’re on a good road now, no more pain, so that’s positive.”
