Blow for Man United with in-form midfielder doubt for Palace clash

Manchester United could be without Bruno Fernandes for Monday night’s clash with Crystal Palace.

Fernandes picked up an issue during the club’s 1-1 draw with Burnley in the Premier League last weekend and is a doubt for the trip to Selhurst Park.


The absence of the club captain would be a major blow for Erik ten Hag, with Fernandes having been in fine form in recent weeks.

The Portugal international has been nominated for the Premier League’s Player of the Month award for April, having scored six goals in his last five league appearances.

Ten Hag has confirmed that Fernandes is facing a race against time to feature against the Eagles, while Scott McTominay and Anthony Martial will also be assessed.

“Scott [McTominay] didn’t train so far this week but I expect him back in training on Saturday and we have to see if he’s 100% available or for a part of the game,” Ten Hag said at his pre-match press conference.

“After the game [against Burnley], we had an issue with Bruno [Fernandes]. He is a doubt for Monday. We all know Bruno, never rule him out for any game. He will do his best to be available.


“Jonny Evans returned today for team training. Tomorrow we are off and then two days until the game. [Anthony] Martial was partly in team training.”
