Martinez, Shaw, McTominay – Manchester United injury news and return dates before Coventry

Manchester United will have to check on several players before their impending FA Cup semi-final showdown vs Coventry City on Sunday afternoon (3.30pm).

United have been hit harder than most on their treatment table this season and Erik ten Hag will, once again, have to patch up his misfiring squad. Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw and Scotland regular Scott McTominay were among the absentees in their 2-2 draw with Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

With Manchester City or Chelsea awaiting in the FA Cup final, United head into their semi-final with Coventry having gone four matches without a win. Here, we take a closer look at Ten Hag’s injury list and potential return dates for nine United players…

Lisandro Martinez

Injury: Calf

What United have said: United confirmed the World Cup winner would be absent ‘for at least a month’ due to a muscle injury sustained in the draw at Brentford.

Potential return date: May 2024

Luke Shaw

Injury: Thigh

What Ten Hag has said (March 29): “I expect him back, I think before the end of the season. That’s the plan and he’s still on schedule for this. He will return into our team.”

Potential return date: May 2024

Tyrell Malacia

Injury: Knee

What Ten Hag has said (February 15): “He had setbacks during his rehab process. It takes too long, it’s bad for him. Bad for us. But now we’ve turned a point, and it’s positive, he will return soon on the pitch. I don’t think then it will take long before he’s returning in the team training.”

Potential return date: TBC
