Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Tranmere Rovers

sportsmole.co.uk, 24 January 2020, 10:50

Manchester United will be looking to book their spot in the fifth round of the FA Cup when they travel to League One side Tranmere Rovers on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils progressed to the fourth round courtesy of a 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on January 15 but have lost both of their Premier League games since.

Indeed, successive 2-0 defeats to Liverpool and Burnley have seen them fall six points off the top four in the Premier League table.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will have a huge advantage on Sunday afternoon, though, with Tranmere only booking their spot in the fourth round of this competition with a 2-1 win over Watford on Thursday night, needing extra-time to advance.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash.
