According to Manchester Evening News, Diogo Dalot will not feature in the derby, whereas Anthony Martial is a doubt. Dalot picked up a slight injury during the match against Charlton.

Ten Hag said: “Diogo Dalot is not available and Anthony Martial trained this morning, so we have to wait how he recovered from his training and that will be decided tomorrow.”

“It is a small thing in his leg so it will be better tomorrow or he will be available for Wednesday.”

The boss further confirmed that Donny Van de Beek will be out for the remainder of the season following his horrific injury in the Carabao Cup clash.

The Dutch midfielder successfully went through a knee surgery during the course of the week. His teammates wished him a speedy recovery across social media.
