Garnacho, 18, was injured in the Red Devils’ 0-0 draw with Southampton at Old Trafford on March 12. He has been out of commission since then. According to the Manchester Evening News, the Argentine winger has gone with the squad to face West Ham which they lost 0-1 to West Ham after 27 mins after the match.
This is expected to be a significant boost for Manchester United. They have only won one of their previous five games in regular time, a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa. They won on penalties against Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup semi-finals after the game ended 0-0 over that span.
Erik ten Hag’s team had previously lost 1-0 to Brighton thanks to a late stoppage-time penalty by Alexis Mac Allister. They will now try to recover against 15th-placed West Ham.
Garnacho might be a valuable asset for Manchester United for the rest of the season. In 29 senior games across competitions this season, he has four goals and five assists.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the following players will go with Manchester United to face West Ham:
David de Gea, Jack Butland, Nathan Bishop, Tyrell Malacia, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, Fred, Bruno Fernandes, Antony, Jadon Sancho, Alejandro Garnacho, Anthony Martial, Wout Weghorst, Marcus Rashford are among the players who have played for Manchester United this season.
Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag stressed the importance of giving it their best in every game ahead of their clash against West Ham. He remarked that he and the other participants like these challenges and that it is their obligation to complete them.
Ten Hag said (via manutd.com):
“You need so much energy, you need a good game plan and, every game, you have to go again. You can’t do it at 99 percent. You have to do it at 100 percent. You have to do it over the full 95 minutes and that’s why we like it. Top players like it, to have huge challenges, but that costs energy.”
