Ralf Rangnick provides Bruno Fernandes, Jadon Sancho fitness update

Ralf Rangnick provides Bruno Fernandes, Jadon Sancho fitness update

Manchester United interim head coach Ralf Rangnick is expecting Jadon Sancho and Bruno Fernandes to be fit for Tuesday’s Premier League clash with Burnley at Turf Moor.

Sancho was withdrawn in the 100th minute of Friday’s FA Cup clash with Middlesbrough, and there were fears that the England international had suffered a thigh issue.

Fernandes, meanwhile, played the full 120 minutes of the fourth-round contest before scoring in the penalty-shootout defeat despite carrying a back problem.

Rangnick, though, is not expecting either player to be unavailable for selection against the Clarets, who are currently bottom of the Premier League table.

“Jadon didn’t get a knock. He was just feeling tired. Bruno had a knock on his back but could play through the whole game. Hopefully, for Tuesday, we will have all of those players available again,” Rangnick told MUTV.

The 20-time English champions could also have both Jesse Lingard and Edinson Cavani back in the squad against Burnley, with the pair given the night off against Middlesbrough.
