Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick has confirmed that Edinson Cavani and Tom Heaton will be sidelined for the Premier League trip to Leeds United.
The Red Devils recently jumped back into the top four of the league with a hard-fought 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion.
They will now be eyeing back-to-back victories, and have an excellent chance of doing so against a vulnerable Leeds backline.
Ahead of the game, Rangnick revealed that Cavani and Heaton won’t play any part as they are struggling with injuries at the moment.
Varane was initially in the line-up against Brighton, but had to pull up during the warm-up following a complaint over a stomach bug.
He is now expected to make a comeback, and should slot in central defence alongside Harry Maguire, who is an undisputed starter.
Rangnick has publicly backed the club captain on numerous occasions, and he is unlikely to drop him from the line-up any time soon.
