Erik ten Hag confirms Manchester United injury boost before Newcastle match

United have been hit harder than most when it comes to injuries this term. That has been particularly problematic at left-back with issues for all their senior options.

Luke Shaw has only just recovered from his own setback, while stop-gap loan addition Sergio Reguilon has spent time in the treatment room himself. However, looking ahead, United should soon be back to their full quota at full-back with other injured players also &aposworking hard&apos to make themselves available.

Speaking in his matchday Q&A before the Newcastle contest, Ten Hag said: “There are updates. Tyrell Malacia had surgery, but he will return in quite short notice.

“From the New Year onwards, he can be available. What&aposs also very good is Luke Shaw has made his return.

“We are very happy with that. Also, the others, they are working very hard to return as soon as possible.”
