Manchester United could have up to 10 players missing due to injury, on Wednesday when they play away to Crystal Palace in the Premier League
Manchester united squad suffered series of injury which leaves the coach worried, as United face Crystal palace.
On the weekend game against Liverpool, United lost Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard to injury in the first half of the game.
This forced injured Marcus Rashford to play the reminder of the game , due to the fact that United had exhausted their substitutions.
Nemanja Matic and Anthony Martial both missed the draw at Old Trafford, while Phil Jones, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia have also been unavailable.
Mason Greenwood, 17, is also currently sidelined and United’s caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits his options are limited for the midweek trip to Selhurst Park.
Jesse Lingard was initially brought on as a substitute for Juan Mata during the first half of the Liverpool game but was substituted shortly before the break due to what looked like a severe muscle injury.
On speaking United boss Ole Solskjaer said
“We’ve not had a session yet, so I don’t think there are a lot of positives, no,” said Solskjaer.
“I don’t know the list [of players] that’s supposed to be injured, Matteo [Darmian] trained the other day. I don’t think he’ll be ready.
“[Marcos] Rojo will be involved. Rashford we’re still waiting to see how his ankle is responding to the treatment, muscle injuries are too early to think about. That’s it.
“Phil was ill one of the days last week, so he’s been out for a little while as well with an illness.
“Luckily at centre-back, there are quite a few fit ones, Victor [Lindelof], Chris [Smalling] and Eric [Bailly], the three of them are ready.”
The United boss admitted he rushed Jesse Lingard back to action too soon insists he will not make the same mistake with Martial, who is still recovering from a groin problem.
“Martial is not going to be ready for this one either,” said Solskjaer. “We can’t risk it. Maybe Southampton but we are not going to risk another one.
“In hindsight, you could maybe say Jesse was eager, but he had ticked all the boxes in training, done the recovery work and rehab.
“Maybe it was a couple of days too early but then again it was Liverpool and he was desperate to be a part of it.”
Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez are set to start in the game against Crystal Palace as Ole has called them to step up and fill the void left by Rashford, Martial and Lingard.
“It is a chance for them to play to their potential,” said Solskjaer. “Reputation is one thing but their potential is high.
“The two of them are good mates, they link up well together, so this might be a chance for them two together to find some form and give us a selection headache for when everyone is fit again.”
