Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. West Ham United

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League meeting with West Ham United.

Manchester United switch their attention back to Premier League matters on Saturday when they face West Ham United at a London Stadium which will finally welcome a small section of supporters back for the first time in nine months.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side produced a stirring second-half comeback to beat Southampton from two goals down last weekend and are now on a club-record run of eight successive away wins.

However, they failed to make their chances count en route to a 3-1 home defeat at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain in midweek and now face a West Ham side in fine form.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Shoulder
Possible return date: December 5 (vs. West Ham)

Marcus Rashford came off with 15 minutes remaining against PSG in midweek, with Solskjaer confirming after the match that the striker had suffered a recurrence of a "niggling" shoulder injury. United are hopeful that he will recover in time for Saturday, but he will need to be assessed ahead of kickoff.

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: December 5 (vs. West Ham)

Man United's injury problems have significantly eased over the last week or so, and there could be more good news with the return of Luke Shaw not far away. The left-back remains a major doubt for this game, but is still due to return from his hamstring injury ahead of schedule.

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Phil Jones has not been included in Manchester United's Premier League squad, partially due to falling out of favour but also due to a knee injury which is expected to keep him sidelined until after Christmas.


Manchester United have no players suspended for this match, although they are waiting to discover the FA's verdict on Edinson Cavani's racially-insensitive social media post.
