Early team news: United v Newcastle

Amad picked up a knock during Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Arsenal and will be assessed, while Jonny Evans also departed the field early, after only recently returning to action.

Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford were again missing due to injury and Ten Hag was asked about their recoveries and likelihood of featuring in the final, in the Old Trafford tunnel.

“It’s difficult to say but I don’t think [they are a doubt for Man City], in this moment,” he told the media post-match.

“Of course, they have to make steps and keep in a rhythm. Bruno he missed now two games, Rashy, I think, more.

“If you want to go hard in games like the cup final, you need the minutes, with the game practice. They know that, but also we have to balance that very good, when you make the injuries more worse, then you miss them.”

Hopefully, the boss can provide a further update on the pair in his press conference to preview the Newcastle fixture.
