Mount has endured a season plagued by fitness issues since his £60 million move from Chelsea last summer and will be unavailable for selection on Sunday.

Man United boss Erik ten Hag confirmed Mount’s absence and provided updates on the return of key players to training.

Captain Bruno Fernandes and midfielder Scott McTominay have rejoined the squad for training sessions. This will offer a boost to United’s midfield options.

What did Erik ten Hag say on Mason Mount Injury?

Speaking about Mount’s injury setback, Ten Hag expressed disappointment but remained optimistic about the team’s prospects. He highlighted the return of Fernandes and McTominay to training, emphasizing their importance to the squad.

“Mason Mount unfortunately fell out yesterday, so he is out for Sunday,” Ten Hag said on Friday.

Reflecting on Mount’s injury and United’s season, Ten Hag acknowledged the challenges posed by the team’s injury crisis. However, he stressed the importance of unity and resilience, emphasizing the club’s determination to compete at the highest level.

“There were some players back on the pitch today — Bruno and Scott McTominay.”

“Licha (Lisandro Martinez) came to me to say he wants to play against Arsenal but he’s not ready yet. He needs a little bit more time to go through the process, but he’s so desperate to play. Raphael Varane, too. Luke Shaw has a setback in his process but there’s still hope and he will fight.”

With the Premier League campaign drawing to a close, United faces Arsenal on Sunday before concluding their season with matches against Newcastle and Brighton.

Additionally, the team is set to face Manchester City in the FA Cup final at Wembley on May 25, aiming to secure silverware to cap off the season.
