Manchester United coach Erik ten Hag revealed his team’s absences before facing Bournemouth, Saturday, at the Vitality Stadium, for the 37th week of the English Premier League.
Ten Hag said in the press conference introducing the match, on Friday, that the final position on the participation of Marcus Rashford, the team’s striker, will be determined within the next few hours.
Rashford did not participate in the “Red Devils” victory last week over Wolverhampton (2-0), which boosted the team’s chances of finishing the season in the top four.
Rashford recently returned to training but fell ill on Friday morning and reported it to the coach.--

Ten Hag told reporters: “Rashford trained all week but today he told us he was ill. We’ll see how he recovers over the course of the day and determine his position on tomorrow’s game. Things are positive with Varane, he’s definitely an option for the match. Scott McTominay is back in training. I think if things go right He’s fine in the last training, he’ll be with us.”
Goalkeeper Tom Heaton also returned to training, but the “Red Devils” were dealt a heavy blow by the injury of Marcel Sabitzer and his absence until the end of the season. For his part, Hamed Traore has been out of action for six weeks, but Bournemouth’s hope is that a return is very imminent.
Bournemouth’s absences until the end of the current season are Ryan Fredericks, Antonio Cimino, Junior Stanislas and Marcus Tavernier.
