Man United Vs Leicester: Coach Jose Mourinho Confirms Six Players Out (Details)

Coach Jose Mourinho has provided an injury update ahead of Manchester United's first 2018-19 Premier League match against Leicester City.

Mourinho has confirmed that six players are out of the match and they are - Nemanja Matic, Sergio Romero, Diogo Dalot, Antonio Valencia, Marcus Rojo, Ander Herrera.

Romero, Dalot and Matic underwent surgery during the summer, Rogo was injured during the World Cup while Herrera and Valencia were shelved during pre-season.

Mourinho said: 'Romero had he had a surgery after his injury, Valencia, he was injured in pre-season, Marcus Rojo, he was injured during the World Cup, Dalot had a surgery in Porto by the end of April and not yet ready.

'Ander Herrera got injured against Bayern, Matic injured in the World Cup and underwent surgery in Philadelphia a couple of weeks ago. And I think that's it.

'They return on Monday, train Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and today so you can imagine that they are not really fit and ready.

'But we have needs, the list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group of players because everybody is different physically and mentally and to see how they feel they are and to understand how they can  help or not help.'

Mourinho also said earlier on Thursday, that those who had a proper pre-season and regularly competed in the friendlies like Alexis Sanchez, are fully fit.

But the Portuguese has insisted that those who played in the World Cup finals and then took a three-week break holiday cannot be expected to play against Leicester.

Mourinho told MUTV: 'No Miracles,  The players with  a proper pre-season are fit and they are strong.

'For example, Alexis Sanchez he's had good pre-season with lots of matches and losts of minute.

'He's more than ready but you cannot have the players who arrived only last Monday after the World Cup semi-finals or Final and three weeks holiday. You cannot expect them to be fit.

The Reds Devils are yet to sign another player following the arrival of Dalot, Lee Grant and Fred this summer.
