Erik Ten Hag suffer huge Triple injury setback ahead of Manchester United’s clash against Barcelona
Manchester United will be missing Anthony Martial, Harry Maguire, and Antony for Thursday’s Europa League second leg play-off against Barcelona.
The Red Devils drew 2-2 with the Catalans at the Camp Nou last Thursday and must defeat the Spanish side at Old Trafford to advance to the last-16 of the competition.
United are still fighting on four fronts, with the Carabao Cup final against Newcastle United coming up just 72 hours after their game against Barcelona.
Erik ten Hag’s squad has been stretched as a result, especially after long-term injuries to Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek.
However, with Martial, Maguire, and Antony still missing from training ahead of Thursday’s game, there is unlikely to be any good news in the near future.
Martial and Antony both began light individual training last week but have yet to return to first team training.
Casemiro is available after serving the third of a three-match suspension on Sunday against Leicester City.
Both Marcel Sabitzer and Lisandro Martinez were suspended for the first leg but are now available for selection.
Raphael Varane is also expected to return to the starting lineup after sitting out the win over the Foxes on Sunday.
