Manchester United's manager Erik ten Hag has given an update regarding the availability of some of his players ahead of their upcoming game against Brighton & Hove Albion on Thursday.
The team had won their previous match against Aston Villa with a 1-0 victory and are now preparing to secure another three points during their next match.
However, ten Hag confirmed that the game will come too early for Alejandro Garnacho as he is still recovering from an ankle injury that he sustained back in March.
Ten Hag delivered some positive news on the fitness front ahead of the game.
During a press conference, he stated that Alejandro Garnacho won't be available for the game due to an ankle injury he sustained in March, as he is still recovering and needs some training before he can be considered for selection.
Ten Hag also mentioned that Raphael Varane's recovery from injury is progressing well and he could return earlier than Scott McTominay. However, both players are expected to miss the next two games against Brighton and West Ham United.
The Red Devils are currently in a promising position to secure a spot in the top four of the Premier League season, having amassed 63 points from 32 games.
Their chances of qualifying for the Champions League will increase if they win their upcoming match against Brighton, leaving them with only two more wins to guarantee a top-four spot.
However, there are expectations that defender Varane could get the green light in the coming weeks. However, manager Ten Hag may decide to preserve Varane's fitness for the FA Cup final scheduled for next month.
