Manchester United Will Be Without 6 First Team Stars for Premier League Game Against Nottingham

Manchester United are expected to be without as many as six first-team players for their upcoming clash against Nottingham Forest as the Premier League returns after the World Cup break. Diogo Dalot, Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho and Axel Tuanzebe are all nursing injuries and World Cup winner Lisandro Martinez is likely to be unavailable.

Varane and Martinez have not returned from international duty as both France and Argentina made it to the finals of the World Cup. Ten Hag admitted that it was too early for Martinez to make a return after Argentina's celebrations back home after lifting the World Cup trophy.

Harry Maguire is currently ill and is considered to be a game-time decision. Ten Hag said:

"Harry is sick, and I do not know how that will develop," Ten Hag said.

"We have to wait and see if he will be available for Nottingham Forest [on Tuesday]."

Dalot is also a likely candidate to miss the game after suffering a hamstring injury in the quarter-finals as Portugal lost to Morocco. While he has returned to Manchester United's training base, he missed their tie against Burnley in the EFL Cup.

Axel Tuanzebe could get his chance under Ten Hag for the first time. He returned to training only recently following an injury and is yet to attend group sessions, but could be in line to start.

Sancho, on the other hand, has not trained with the team for a while. Ten Hag said that the 22-year-old has fitness issues and attended a special camp in the Netherlands during the World Cup. It remains to be seen if Manchester United can get their players back ahead of a packed domestic schedule.
