Cavani, Pogba, Shaw – Manchester United injury latest ahead of Premier League return

Manchester United begin their run-in to the end of the season on Saturday when they host Leicester City at Old Trafford.

United are chasing a top-four spot in order to qualify for the Champions League next season. At the moment, Ralf Rangnick’s men are outsiders to finish in that coveted position.

The Reds sit sixth in the Premier League, four points behind Arsenal who also have a game in hand over them. The Gunners still have to face United on Saturday, April 23 in what could be a huge match when it comes to deciding the Champions League positions.

Before then, United must get past the Foxes and they should have a mostly fit squad to choose from. Take a look at the latest from the Carrington treatment room below.

The veteran striker was forced off injured during Uruguay’s World Cup qualifier with Chile on Tuesday. It is currently not known how bad the injury is but United have confirmed that he is a doubt ahead of the Foxes visit.

Paul Pogba

Injury – Foot

Return date – April 2

There was concern that Pogba may have suffered a serious injury against the Ivory Coast after he had to miss training with the French national team. However, he came off the bench against South Africa so he should be fine for Leicester on Saturday.
