Manchester United have several injury concerns for their trip to Huddersfield on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.
United are aiming to keep their top-four hopes alive with victory over the already-relegated Terriers.
However, Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard missed Wednesday's part-open training session and Marcus Rashford is also set to be assessed.
David de Gea is set to keep his place in goal, despite a poor run of form, as back-up Sergio Romero is injured.
United are three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with two games of the season left to play, and United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits scoring has been an issue recently.
"We haven't scored enough of the chances we've created," he said.
"When I first came in we were very efficient but now the margins have gone against us. We've been working on creating chances and scoring again."
Huddersfield will be looking to end a disappointing campaign with a positive result in their final home game.
The Terriers have lost their last eight games in a row and were beaten 5-0 by Liverpool last time out.
Aaron Mooy (hip) and Adama Diakhaby trained this week for Huddersfield but Mathias Jorgensen is a doubt due to a cold.
Solskjaer said on Friday that United have a "few niggles and a few injuries".
Eric Bailly, Mason Greenwood and Romero are out while Pogba, Lukaku, Lingard, Rashford, Fred and Chris Smalling will be assessed.
Phil Jones and Antonio Valencia have trained so should be available.
- Huddersfield have only won one of their last 13 top-flight meetings with Man Utd (D3 L9), though it was in this exact fixture last season (2-1).
- Manchester United have found the net at least once in their last 12 top-flight meetings with Huddersfield (W9 D2 L1) since a 0-0 draw in October 1953.
- Huddersfield have lost 28 Premier League games this season - only Ipswich in 1994-95, Sunderland in 2005-06 and Derby in 2007-08 have ever lost more in a single campaign (all 29).
- Huddersfield have lost 14 home Premier League games this season - only two teams in top-flight history have ever lost more in a single season; Blackpool in 1966-67 and Stoke in 1984-85 (both 15).
- Manchester United are winless in their last four games in all competitions (D1 L3), last having a longer run without a win in December 2015 under Louis van Gaal (8 games).
- Manchester United haven't won their last away league game of the season since the 2011-12 campaign (1-0 at Sunderland), drawing five and losing one since then.
- Manchester United haven't lost four consecutive away league games since a run of six in March 1981, while they haven't lost six in a row on the road in all competitions since February 1974, during the campaign they were last relegated from the top-flight.
- Huddersfield have scored just nine home league goals this season. In top-flight history, no side has ever failed to reach double figures for home goals in a single campaign.
Paul Merson's prediction
I remember last year - but Manchester United will win this comfortably. Anything less than 4-0 is disappointing. You're playing a team who can't win for toffee, look out of their depth, and surely United should have the ammunition to rip them to shreds.
They can't put it together for 90 minutes though. They huffed and puffed last weekend, that's not the Manchester United I remember.
PAUL PREDICTS: 0-4
