Manchester United now has 10 injured players, following its 1-0 loss to Arsenal, which leaves the team in their lowest-ever eighth place in the Premier League.

With these losses, the team may miss out on European football next season altogether. Former star player  Wayne Rooney, claimed on the programme, Super Sunday, that the United players are hiding behind injuries: “As we look at the injuries they’ve picked up, some of those players can play, 100 per cent.”

United coach, Erik ten Hag, argued: “You have to see here in Carrington (Manchester United’s training ground), the players are desperate to play. Bruno [Fernandes] did a fitness test on Sunday to play and [Marcus] Rashford did everything he could do. Players are desperate to play. [Victor] Lindelof and [Raphael] Varane are training to make themselves available for the final. They do what they can do,” he emphasised. 

The injured players throughout this season included Bruno Fernandes, Lisandro Martinez, Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay, Mason Mount, Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, Anthony Martial, Victor Lindelof, Willy Kambwala and Tyrell Malacia.

The big problem for Manchester United is to get through their last Premier League matches versus Newcastle United on May 15 and and Brighton on May 19 before facing Manchester City in the FA Cup Final on May 25.
