Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag admits the chances of Anthony Martial, Scott McTominay and Antony returning to fitness in time for the Carabao Cup final ‘looks good’.

The Red Devils take on Barcelona at the Camp Nou tonight without a string of first team players.

Marcel Sabitzer and Lisandro Martinez are suspended, while Donny van de Beek and Christian Eriksen are long-term absentees.

Martial has endured an injury-plagued campaign and is out with a hip injury, while McTominay has an unspecified issue.

Antony has missed the last two games with a leg complaint, meaning Jadon Sancho has come back into the side.

United face Barcelona tonight before hosting Leicester on Sunday. Ten Hag’s side then host Barcelona next Thursday before the Carabao Cup final against Newcastle on the 26th February.

It will be United’s chance to end their six-year wait for silverware and Ten Hag says the injured trio are on course to return in time.

‘It looks good,’ said Ten Hag, when asked about the injured trio.

‘They are on the way back. They are on the training ground individually. They are making progress.’
