6 Manchester United Players That Could Miss FA Cup Final vs Man City

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag could be without six key players for Saturday’s FA Cup final against Manchester City.

While some players have already been ruled out, others remain uncertain due to fitness concerns leading up to the crucial match.

United will be aiming to halt City’s pursuit of a treble, as Ten Hag looks to secure his second domestic trophy in his debut season in English football, following their Carabao Cup triumph in February.

Knowing the challenge they face against Pep Guardiola’s side, just a week before their Champions League final against Inter Milan, Ten Hag is aware that he won’t have a full squad to select from at Wembley.

The manager will hope for the return of players to full fitness in the coming days. Let’s take a closer look at the six stars who could potentially be unavailable for the final:

1. Donny van de Beek

Van de Beek has been sidelined with a knee injury since early January and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by Ten Hag. There is a possibility he could recover in time for the start of pre-season in July, although his long-term future at United remains uncertain.

2 . Lisandro Martinez

Martinez won’t be fit for Saturday’s match as he continues to recover from a foot injury suffered in April, which prematurely ended his campaign. Ten Hag confirmed that Martinez will join the team in pre-season as he completes his rehabilitation.

3. Marcel Sabitzer

Sabitzer sustained a knee injury in mid-May and was ruled out for the rest of the season. The loanee’s time at the club appears to have come to an end, with Bayern Munich allowing him to depart this summer. United reportedly decided against pursuing a permanent signing.

4 . Antony

Antony has a chance of making the squad for the final. He suffered a foot injury during the victory over Chelsea last Thursday and was absent from the match against Fulham. However, Ten Hag remains hopeful that the winger will be available to play on Saturday.

5 . Anthony Martial

Martial’s injury struggles persist at United. The club announced on Tuesday that he has picked up a hamstring problem, ruling him out of contention for the final.

The French forward has had a challenging season, making just 11 Premier League starts and dealing with various injuries such as Achilles, back, and hip problems.

6 . Luke Shaw

Among the listed players, Shaw is the most likely to feature in the final. He left the pitch at half-time of the Chelsea game due to a back problem.

Although he was on the bench for the victory over Fulham, he didn’t make an appearance. Shaw’s fitness progress in training this week will determine if he starts in the final.

As the FA Cup final approaches, Manchester United will closely monitor the fitness of these players and hope for positive updates to strengthen their chances against their formidable city rivals.
