Manchester United

Huge lift given to Man Utd ahead of their trip to Everton as a first-hand reconnaissance visit is scheduled to occur

Christian Eriksen won’t play in Sunday’s Premier League match between Manchester United and Everton, although Rasmus Hojlund is still expected to play.

Erik ten Hag, the manager of United, has provided an update on the Danish players’ injuries. They were sidelined for their nation during the international break.

Both Hojlund (muscle strain) and Eriksen (knee) were hurt during United’s November 11 home victory against Luton, which was their previous Premier League match.

Ten Hag stated, “Christian will take a little bit longer,” on United’s official website. It will be a few weeks before he comes back.

“Well, not too terrible, Rasmus Hojlund. Everton will be a tight contest, but we’re making progress.

“We’re not sure if he can make that, but hopefully he’ll be back with the squad within the next week.”

Against Luton, both players were taken off the field in the last moments. Eriksen’s first month-long absence was confirmed by United, with Hojlund anticipating his return by the end of November.

In the event that Hojlund fails a fitness test prior to Sunday’s match against Everton, he may be ready to play in Tuesday’s Champions’ League match in Istanbul against Galatasaray.

Due to suspension, fellow forward Marcus Rashford will miss that crucial group match after receiving a red card in the most recent loss in Copenhagen.

Ten Hag has received three yellow cards, and United has now announced that he will serve a touchline ban this weekend at Everton.

Man Utd will closely monitor Branthwaite.

United will also get a first-hand look at how successfully January target Jarrad Branthwaite counters their onslaught on Sunday.

As Ten Hag attempts to bolster his team, the Toffees center-back has become a top target for the Red Devils in the new year.

United’s back line will undergo a makeover starting in 2024, and there are rumors circulating the club that these preparations are already in motion.

As we previously reported, Nice’s Jean-Clair Todibo is a top target for United. The current recruitment team is also interested in Sporting Lisbon’s Goncalo Inacio and Benfica’s Antonio Silva.

Though reports suggest that Everton’s Branthwaite has attracted attention outside of those overseas targets, it is crucial to remember that these circumstances could still alter as the new year approaches and United makes changes within the club leadership.
