All the latest injury news and updates for Man Utd ahead of their Premier League encounter with Brentford on March 30th.

And breathe. After Sunday's thrilling FA Cup quarter-final victory over Liverpool, the international break now means that Manchester United and their supporters can enjoy the luxury of a weekend off from domestic action. While plenty of members of Erik ten Hag's squad will be jetting off around the globe to compete for their respective nations over the coming days, the Red Devils' next match is not until March 30th, when they will face Brentford.

For United, sixth in the table and nine points off the top four, it could be a fixture with huge implications for their faint Champions League qualification hopes, and anything other than a win is likely to put an end to their ambitions in that regard entirely.

But which players will Ten Hag be without for the Premier League clash against the Bees? We've taken a look at United's latest injury list, and any potential return dates where possible, below...

Luke Shaw

Still sidelined with a thigh issue, it could be May before Shaw is fit enough to return to first team action. At the present moment in time, his injury concerns could place a question mark over his availability for Gareth Southgate's Euro 2024 squad.

Lisandro Martinez

The Argentine is currently recovering from an injury to the medial collateral ligament in his knee, and is not expected back until the beginning of April at the earliest. The Premier League clash against Liverpool on April 7th could be a realistic return date.

Tyrell Malacia

Another defensive injury concern for United, Malacia has been attempting to make his comeback from a knee injury for some time now. All being well, his rehabilitation should allow him to be fit for selection after the international break, and the game against Brentford remains a possible target.

Jonny Evans

Evans missed Sunday's game against Liverpool after pulling up in training in the days prior. It is unclear exactly how bad his injury is, but at the present moment in time there is no reason to believe that he shouldn't be ready to face Brentford next weekend.

Altay Bayindir

United's rarely seen deputy goalkeeper is currently sidelined with a muscle strain, but was only expected to be out of action for a fortnight, and should be back in time to make the bench against Brentford.

Amad Diallo

United's last minute hero against Liverpool, Amad was subsequently sent off after receiving a second yellow card for removing his shirt in celebration. The Ivorian will now be banned for two matches, but will be available for selection again in time for the away trip to Chelsea on April 4th.

Casemiro

There are no concrete indications just yet as to when Casemiro will be back in Ten Hag's squad, with the Dutchman telling a press conference recently: 'It does [affect us] because Casemiro is very experienced and a very important player for us in organisation, also on the ball, he brings composure to the team and he can bring great passes to bring our frontline into great positions, especially with the three with their immense speed. You miss, of course, a passer like Casemiro.'

Anthony Martial

Martial underwent groin surgery at the end of January, and is expected to make his return shortly after the international break.
