Sports Mole provides an update on Manchester United’s injuries and suspension ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Villarreal.

Fresh off Saturday’s 4-1 Premier League defeat at Watford, Manchester United will resume their Champions League campaign with a clash against Villarreal Tuesday.

However, the Red Devils are currently at the top of their Champions League section, picking up seven points from four games in Group F, which has left them on track for the round of 16 of the competition.

Here, Sporty Taupe sums up all the latest Man United news on injuries and suspension ahead of their trip to Spain.
