Mason Greenwood, Edinson Cavani, Luke Shaw – Manchester United injury round ahead of Chelsea clash

A new dawn is approaching for Manchester United as Ralf Rangnick looks set to be appointed interim manager until the end of the season, but while awaiting a work permit, the Reds travel to the top Chelsea.

In a week filled with managerial twists and turns, United appear to be set on a solution off the field, so the focus returns to that, as they appear to dust themselves off after the sober defeat to Watford .

The dismantling of Vicarage Road marked the end of Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s tenure at Old Trafford and saw him subsequently replaced by Michael Carrick on a temporary basis and in dugout for this weekend’s match.

Harry Maguire was sent off when the last dagger shot was landed for Solskjær, after another offense that could be reserved after a loose touch led to a desperate outcome for turnover possession, which then Tom Cleverley left in a pile.

The red card means the 28-year-old will only miss one game for United and can return to the fold when they visit Arsenal on Thursday.

Paul Pogba, who would have returned from his quarantine if he had been in good form, is still out of the game with the thigh injury he sustained during the international break.

Similarly with his French compatriot, Raphael Varane, who was forced into a draw with Atalanta. Scans later showed it was a hamstring injury and he will miss the trip to the capital.

Meanwhile, it remains to be seen if Sunday’s match comes too soon for Mason Greenwood, after the winger succumbed to coronavirus and missed out on the defeat to Watford and midweek’s Champions League victory over Villarreal.

There are two looming doubts for the clash, with Edinson Cavani and Luke Shaw still questioning their fitness.

The Uruguayan saw tendon problems flare up again in the victory over Tottenham last month, which meant he missed the recent international break.

Shaw escaped last weekend with a concussion – weeks after suffering a similar injury in the defeat to Manchester City.

He missed the trip to El Madrigal, but is awaiting an update for Sunday.

Prior to the trip to Stamford Bridge, Londoners themselves do not lack injury problems with important absences, including Ben Chilwell.
