Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick will miss their game with Watford on Saturday.
In the absence of their main strikers James Wilson is set to lead the line for Van Gaal's side but the Dutchman says he won't be able to last 90 minutes due to a "lack of match rhythm".
Van Gaal confirmed Rooney was ill, he said: "Wayne Rooney was also ill after the international break.
"I only saw him the day after he played then he was at home yesterday so I think he can't play."

Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard has been called into the England squad ahead of Tuesday's game against France.
The 22-year-old will join up with the squad on Sunday to help bolster Roy Hodgson's ranks after two players were forced out through injury.
Lingard's Old Trafford team-mate Michael Carrick was carried off in the last minute of England's 2-0 defeat to Spain on Friday.
Carrick has returned to his club and will not be available for England's final game of the year.
Meanwhile Jamie Vardy, who sat out the game in Alicante with a knock sustained in Leicester's Premier League encounter with Watford last weekend, will also miss Tuesday's match with the French.

Diego Costa is not the most popular player outside of Chelsea, but Wayne Rooney is a big fan of the controversial Blues and Spain striker.
Costa has earned a reputation as something of a wind-up merchant due to his attempts to get under defenders' skin.
I actually voted for him as player of the year last season because I think he was a huge player for Chelsea. I think what Chelsea missed the season before was that fight up front and he gave them that and I strongly believe that's why they became champions. Obviously it hasn't gone as well as it did last season for him but I think he is a fantastic player.
He's a fighter and I think that's part of his game and it's going to be very difficult for anyone to ask him not to do that. I feel that's in him - that fight. He thrives on that and that gets his team-mates going as well.
