Full Man Utd injury list: Latest news on 8 recent absentees ahead of the international break & Man City clash
We have the latest on Manchester United’s injured players as the club prepares for players to represent their countries on the international stage.
The Red Devils haven’t played a league game since beating Arsenal 3-1 at Old Trafford on 4 September, ahead of Queen Elizabeth’s death four days later.

Erik Ten Hag’s side lost their opening group stage match against Real Sociedad 1-0 at Old Trafford, but were victorious when travelling to Moldova to face Sheriff Tiraspol last week, beating them 2-0.
The international break gives the Red Devils adamant time to assess players who have been absent since the beginning of the campaign or those who have picked up injuries during it.
