Report: Ten Hag provides fitness update on four Man Utd stars for Spurs clash

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has shared an update on his squad ahead of the visit to Tottenham Hotspur this evening, and it seems Bruno Fernandes could be ready for the game, but youngster Alejandro Garnacho will be unavailable.

The Red Devils go into the game currently sitting in fourth place in the Premier League, and a win over Spurs would put them within touching distance of securing a top-four finish and Champions League football for next season.

Ten Hag’s men are coming off the back of a tricky FA Cup semi-final on Sunday, where they scraped past high-flying Brighton after a tense penalty shootout to book their place in the final.

The win did come at a cost, however, as star man Fernandes was forced off in extra time with an ankle injury. It remains to be seen whether he will be passed fit for the upcoming clash against Spurs tomorrow.

Speaking to the press ahead of the game (via the club’s official website), ten Hag said: “There are some unavailable. [Lisandro] Martinez, [Raphael] Varane.

“We have to see how Bruno Fernandes is. We don’t know yet, he is a question mark. I think, for the rest, we are quite okay.

“Bruno, we have to wait… He had a big kick in the first half but he played the game, over 90 minutes, and even in extra time.

“But then he went off. We’ve all seen. He’s not excluded for tomorrow but he is a question mark. Garnacho is back on the pitch but he’s not ready for the game tomorrow.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Bruno Fernandes and Alejandro Garnacho are two very dangerous attacking players, and it looks like United are going to be severely weaker at the back without Martinez and Varane.

Man United have a great squad, though, and even the replacements for these players can hurt us.
