Premier League Injury boost for Ten Hag, Man United ahead of Tottenham clash

Erik ten Hag provided an extensive team news update, ahead of Manchester United’s Premier League meeting with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Reds were missing 12 first-team players at Wigan Athletic on Monday evening, through a combination of injury, illness and international duty.

According to Ten Hag, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro and Luke Shaw are looking forward to a return, following injuries that have kept them out since September and November and could be available for the visit of Spurs.

“This week in training, in the last couple of days, Licha Martinez [is] training, Casemiro [is] training, Luke Shaw [is] training,” Ten Hag told reporters on Friday, adding: “So, there are players returning, they are coming in for selection for Sunday.”

Amad, Anthony and Christian Eriksen all missed the trip to the DW Stadium but are ready to play again according to Ten Hag.

“Antony, yeah. Eriksen was ill in the week, he will return. Antony will return. I thought you mentioned longer-terms and unexpected… but they will return as well,” added Ten Hag.

“So, Amad will return. We have more choices in this moment in the squad to put out a starting XI and create a bench [that is] stronger.”
