- Bruno Fernandes is one of the Man United players doubtful for Tottenham's Premier League clash
- Both stars missed out if their victory over Brighton in their EFL Cup competition
- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms the two players are likely to be back for the game
Manchester United are likely to miss the services of Bruno Fernandes and Harry Maguire for their Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford this weekend.
The Red Devils head into the fixture on the back of their back-to-back victories over Brighton and Hove Albion in the EPL and EFL Cup competitions.
After inspiring his side to victory over The Seagulls last weekend, the Portugal midfielder was missing in the squad that commanded a 3-0 triumph in the cup competition.
Reports claim the 25-year-old was out of action due to a thigh injury but could be back for their game against Spurs.
SunSport reports that Harry Maguire is also doubtful of the clash against the North Londoners but his manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident of his early return.
The England international missed out of his side victory over Brighton in the Carabao Cup earlier this week. Solskjaer told the club's official:
"Yeah, he's got a little knock but should be okay."
Axel Tuanzebe, 22, will not take part in the crucial game against Tottenham having recently resumed light training from the Ankle/Foot injury he suffered in the past. He is expected to join the rest of the team on October 17.
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho will hope to return to winning ways when he returns to Old Trafford where he was once a manager.
Before their trip to Manchester this weekend, Tottenham will host Maccabi Haifa in their Europa League playoffs on Thursday, October 1.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Tottenham Hotspur have shifted their focus to landing Crystal Palace forward, Christian Benteke before the transfer window closes.
The North Londoners confirmed that their influential winger, Son Heung-min picked up a hamstring injury in their 1-1 draw against Newcastle United last weekend.
This has now reduced Jose Mourinho's options upfront with a pile of matches to be played across competitions this campaign.
