Before the campaign had even begun, there were a number of players on the sidelines with issues. However, despite only playing four games so far this season, the injuries have continued to roll in thick and fast.

Ten Hag has been juggling a seriously depleted squad and with the Premier League returning as well as the Champions League and Carabao Cup beginning soon, United need to be as close to full strength as possible. First up after the international break is the visit of Brighton to Old Trafford.

The Seagulls have started the season in fine form and will be looking to push on in the north west. Here’s the latest on the injuries in United’s squad…
