Shaw, Onana, Hojlund – Man United’s Injury News & Possible Return Dates Ahead of Everton Clash

Manchester United is gearing up for their return to Premier League action this weekend, marking the conclusion of the final international break of 2023. The team’s morale is lifted after a recent home victory against Luton Town, secured by Victor Lindelof’s goal, which followed a disappointing loss in Copenhagen.

As they prepare to face another challenge on Sunday, visiting a club in Merseyside, securing three points could significantly boost United’s confidence. An added positive is the potential return of Luke Shaw, who has been sidelined with a muscular injury since August. Shaw rejoined training on Wednesday, raising hopes for his availability in the upcoming match against Everton on November 26.

 

 

According to Manchester Evening News, Rashford’s injury status remains uncertain after a heavy clash with Trent Alexander-Arnold. Despite concerns, Gareth Southgate expressed relative unconcern about Rashford’s fitness. The winger’s potential return is also marked for the Everton match.

 

 

Goalkeeper Andre Onana is recovering from an abductor injury, the exact cause of which remains unknown. His absence from the Cameroon squad further complicates the timeline for his return.

 

 

Rasmus Hojlund faces a race against time to be fit for the weekend game against Everton after withdrawing from the Denmark squad due to a minor hamstring complaint. Although not deemed serious, his fitness remains in question.

 

 

In contrast, Christian Eriksen, United’s Danish international partner, faces a more serious setback with a knee injury. The club confirms Eriksen will be sidelined for approximately a month, with a potential return in December.

Casemiro, the Brazilian midfielder, suffered a hamstring injury during the defeat to Newcastle, raising doubts about his availability for the remainder of 2023. The potential return date for Casemiro is projected to be in January.

Centre-back Lisandro Martinez continues his recovery from a foot surgery, with a likely return early next year. Despite his absence on the field, Martinez has been present at Carrington, watching the team’s training sessions this week. The projected return date for Martinez is also set for January.
