Manchester United Interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said some Manchester United youngsters could make the midweek squad at Crystal Palace following a string of injuries.
United had to send Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard off in the half-time of their premier league tie with Liverpool, while Marcus Rashford endured a swollen ankle till end of game.
Rashy was originally going to be replaced by Lingard until Mata was taken off in the 25th minute and then Lingard only lasted 18 minutes on his truncated comeback from a hamstring injury. Solskjaer confirmed all three withdrawn players succumbed to hamstring injuries.
Moreso, Nemanja Matic suffered an injury in training on Saturday while Anthony Martial is being inflicted with a groin problem. Prolific 17-year-old striker Mason Greenwood is also sidelined through injury, so Tahith Chong and Angel Gomes could feature at Selhurst Park on Wednesday.
Speaking on the string of injuries so far, Ole said the team is hopeful they will make recovery soon
“‘No idea at the moment, but we’ve got two days of recovery,”
On Rashford , Ole said; ”If he plays against Palace I’ll be maybe surprised.
”I’ve never seen the like of this before, three hamstrings in the first-half. Rashy obviously was kicked, he did his ankle straight away, we should have taken him off as well, but we didn’t did we?
”But we’ve got some good kids coming through, so we’ll have 11 players on the pitch on Wednesday night. And luckily we’ve got two days recovery!” He added.
