“My Job is at risk, I need to make some changes with player that recently came back from injury”- Man United handed huge injury boost ahead of Brentford as Erik ten Hag considers selection gamble.

Manchester United have been handed a significant injury boost ahead of their Premier League clash against Brentford on Saturday.Erik ten Hag will be desperate to return to winning ways at Old Trafford, having lost consecutive home games against Galatasaray and Crystal Palace.But the Red Devils may be facing Brentford at the perfect time, with the Bees taking just two points from their last five matches.And to add to their hopes, Ten Hag could have new loan signing Sergio Reguilon available, after he picked up an injury against Burnley.

That’s according to ESPN reporter Rob Dawson, who tweeted: “Sergio Reguilon trained with Man United this morning so there’s a possibility he will be fit to return this weekend.”Supporters will be delighted after the 26-year-old impressed fans with his performance against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.However, there have been mixed reports regarding Reguilon’s availability, with Manchester Evening News journalist Samuel Luckhurst claiming that the Spaniard remains out of contention to face Brentford.

United will also be without Lisandro Martinez for the contest, with the Argentinian centre-back expected to be sidelined for up to three months after picking up a foot injury against Arsenal on 9 September.The club released a statement which said: “Lisandro Martinez will be out of action for an extended period due to an aggravation of the foot injury he suffered in April.

“The Argentinian defender experienced the setback in our Premier League game against Arsenal earlier this month.“But it has now been determined that he needs a period on the sidelines for recovery and rehabilitation. Assessment is ongoing to decide next steps.”

Speaking after United’s 3-0 Carabao Cup win over Crystal Palace, Ten Hag spoke about his team’s mounting injury list.He said: “Every time the schedule is expanding, the load on the players is too much, it’s such a great overload. Many colleagues of mine have pointed to that and I have pointed to that as well.“But it keeps going. We keep expanding the schedule. Anywhere, it won’t stop. Players can’t deal anymore with this overload and I think that’s what you say in this squad at the moment.”
