Erik ten Hag says he has the “luxury problem” of competition for places as Manchester United prepare for their trip to the Amex.

Lisandro Martinez, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford returned against Newcastle in midweek and players will be keen to state their case to play in the FA Cup final.

Their final opportunity in a match situation comes when Albion host United on the final day of the Premier League campaign.

Amad Diallo scored a rocket on Wednesday and has shone in his first two Premier League starts under Ten Hag, while Sofyan Amrabat has stepped up as his loan spell comes to a close.

“It’s internal competition and I think they perform well,” the United boss said of the pair.

“I think the way they’re progressing across the season is very good for both and now they deserve the chance, they took the chance and that’s a luxury problem.

“Which is good and that is actually what I need, what I was waiting for so long. Actually, I was waiting for a whole season, such a luxury problem and we need a squad to win both games.”

United head south with plenty to play for.

They could still seal European qualification through the league, but they need to better seventh-placed Newcastle’s result at Brentford to at least reach the Conference League.

Ten Hag said: “There was only one very poor performance (recently), so all the others, there was always very good spirit.

“I would almost say across the season, across all the problems we had – I don’t think I have to sum them up again, but we have had them –the spirit in the team, the fighting spirit, was always there.

Raphael Varane is back in training and could feature while fellow centre-back Victor Lindelof is in a similar situation.

Asked whether anyone would return on Sunday, ten Hag said: “I can’t say in this moment but we are working to bring players back.

“On Saturday we have training, and then we will see what we have.”
