Why Fernandes and Rashford are not in Man United squad vs Arsenal


Erik ten Hag has confirmed he expected to name Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford in the matchday squad against Arsenal but neither player recovered in time for the clash.

Ten Hag confirmed in his pre-match press conference on Friday that he expected both players to be fit for the clash with the Gunners.

“I hope I have players, yeah. Players trained this morning. Bruno was on the pitch and Scott McTominay was back on the pitch. Some players are returning,” Ten Hag said.

“Rashford trained this morning as well. We have to see how he recovered from this but it looks quite good. Hopefully he makes the training tomorrow and then see if he’s available for Sunday.”

However, neither Fernandes nor Rashford have made the squad for the game. When asked why they have not been named in the squad, Ten Hag told Sky Sports: “In the last days we trained with Rashy but he didn’t make it. Yesterday, Bruno trained for two days but it was not far enough to recover from his injury to get back in the team.”
