Manchester United’s injury concerns have deepened as they prepare for their upcoming home match against Crystal Palace. Lisandro Martinez and Sergio Reguilon have been added to the club’s growing injury list and are set to miss the crucial fixture.
Martinez, who has recently suffered a reoccurrence of a foot injury that sidelined him from April last season, faces another spell on the sidelines. Reguilon, too, will be absent due to a minor injury, dealing a blow to the team’s defensive options.
Despite these setbacks, there is a glimmer of hope for Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag. Speaking about the team’s injury situation, ten Hag stated, “The players who were out of the squad for Tuesday – Scott McTominay and Christian Eriksen – they are back.” This news brings a sigh of relief for the manager, as the return of McTominay and Eriksen adds depth to the squad.

Manchester United enters the game with the aim of securing their third successive win in all competitions. They managed a hard-fought 1-0 victory against Burnley last weekend and followed it up with a convincing 3-0 triumph over Palace in the EFL Cup on Tuesday. The team’s recent form indicates their determination to maintain momentum, even in the face of injury challenges.
The absence of key players like Martinez and Reguilon will undoubtedly test Manchester United’s depth, but with the return of McTominay and Eriksen, the team will be bolstered in vital areas. As they set their sights on the upcoming match against Crystal Palace, the Red Devils remain resolute in their pursuit of victory and will look to overcome the hurdles posed by injuries to secure another crucial three points.
