Evans is in contention to play Saturday against Arsenal after spending the international break rehabbing his ankle injury with the club, the Telegraph reports.

Evans has been sidelined since picking up the injury Sept. 29 against Leicester City, though his return to fitness will not guarantee a spot in the starting XI, as Chris Smalling is eligible after his three-match red-card ban, and Phil Jones is expected to be fit after recovering from a shin injury.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said Tuesday that he does not believe Evans (ankle) will be fit to face Arsenal on Nov. 22 after the international break, The Guardian reports.

Van Gaal did intimate that Evans may be fit to be available off the bench, though that does little for fantasy purposes, as he's not a great offensive weapon and defenders usually don't produce big points in limited time.

Evans will likely miss a number of matches, starting with Saturday's tilt with West Ham, due to the ankle injury he picked up last Sunday against Leicester City, ESPN reports.

With Evans, Chris Smalling (thigh) and Tyler Blackett (suspension) all out against the Hammers, Paddy McNair and Tom Thorpe were called up from the Under-21 side. It's unclear how long Evans will be out, but it appears likely he'll return after the international break.

Evans had to be removed from Sunday's game against Leicester City due to a foot injury, and manager Louis van Gaal confirmed after the game that Evans was on crutches. "He got a kick," van Gaal said. I don't know how bad it is. We have to wait and see. He's on crutches."

Evans appears to have a spot in the starting XI when he's fit, but if he is forced to miss any time, which appears likely, Chris Smalling figures to take his place, as he did Sunday.

After his dreadful performance against MK Dons in the Capital One Cup, Evans registered a clean sheet during Manchester United's scoreless draw against Burnley on Saturday in Premier League play.

Evans missed the first two games of the Premier League season after picking up a knock late in the preseason, but he was back in the starting XI and helped keep the weak Burnley attack out. The addition of Daley Blind could move some pieces around, which could limit Evans' fantasy upside if he loses his starting spot.

Evans (knock) started and played all 90 minutes of Manchester United's stunning 4-0 loss to MK Dons in the second round of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday.

Evans was held out of Manchester United's two Premier League matches so far this season due to a knock, but his dreadful performance in an embarrassing loss Tuesday won't make manager Louis van Gaal want to insert him back into the starting XI in league play. While he's healthy, the United defense has been very suspect, which making Evans a relatively weak fantasy option.

Despite a return to training this week, Evans was not in the 18-man squad for Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Sunderland on Sunday.

United continue to have issues with their back-three, and Evans' absence is hardly helping matters. His next chance to play comes Saturday at Burnley, a promising clean sheet opportunity if he's fit.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Evans (knock) has been ruled out of Manchester United's Premier League opener against Swansea City on Saturday.

Evans was in line to start the match as part of the three-man back-line that manager Louis van Gaal is trying out at Manchester United, but he'll have to wait at least another week before solidifying his spot.
