Man Utd squad & team news
The biggest news from Manchester is the signing of Casemiro from Real Madrid. The midfielder is expected to make his debut against Southampton on Saturday.
Anthony Martial, who played against Liverpool, could miss the weekend’s league game due to an injury, Teg Hag said on Friday.
“Anthony Martial is not fit. He came out with a problem on his Achilles, so we have to wait. I cannot tell a prognosis how long it takes but, of course, I hope that he will be available for the next game,” Ten Hag said.
