Manchester United attackers Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood could miss their side’s clash against West Brom, according to TalkSPORT.
This follows news that United defender Alex Telles may also miss this weekend’s game after testing positive for COVID-19 while on international duty.
Luke Shaw is also injured meaning the Red Devils are facing a mini injury crisis ahead of their game against the Baggies.
TalkSPORT report that Rashford is a ‘doubt’ after suffering a shoulder injury that forced him into leaving the England squad early.
The report also states that Mason Greenwood is ‘touch and go’ as he is suffering from an illness that is not believed to be COVID related.
Rashford has two goals and three assists in the Premier League this season and if he is unable to play it will be a huge blow to the Red Devils.
The West Brom defence may sleep a little easier this week if Rashford and Greenwood are unavailable for this weekend’s tie but they still face a daunting prospect when they travel to Old Trafford.
Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial could line up against the Baggies while Edinson Cavani may be handed a first Premier League start due to Rashford’s absence.
Albion remain winless this season and even the most optimistic fans will be struggling to envision the Baggies picking up a first three-point haul against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
United’s injury worries will be a boost to the Baggies but they will need to be perfect if they are to take anything from this weekend’s game.
