Lingard and Herrera have sustained muscle injuries of late and both have missed extended periods, with Lingard limping off in the 0-0 draw with Liverpool after being rushed back from an initial injury too quickly. ​Herrera missed that game entirely and has been absent for seven games on the whole with a hip problem.
