Manchester United will be without Brazilian midfielder Casemiro for their Premier League match against Sheffield United this weekend. The 31-year-old picked up a minor injury while playing for Brazil in their recent World Cup qualifiers.
United manager Erik ten Hag confirmed Casemiro has remained in his home country to receive treatment for a “small issue”. It is unclear exactly how long he will be sidelined for.
However, there was better news regarding some other players. Moroccan midfielder Sofyan Amrabat and Spanish left-back Sergio Reguilon, on loan from Tottenham, both trained with the team on Thursday.
Amrabat had missed Morocco’s recent international matches due to injury, while Reguilon has not featured for United in their last four games due to a minor problem.
Ten Hag will also be relieved that Danish striker Rasmus Hojlund was able to train, after he picked up some rough treatment while playing for his country against San Marino in midweek. Hojlund’s fitness gives United a boost ahead of their trip to Bramall Lane to face Sheffield United on Saturday evening.
