Hopefully, Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will enter Saturday’s Premier League home match of at Old Trafford against Crystal Palace without any fresh injury worries.
According to their official club website, the boss has opted-in to field a largely unchanged team he used against Wolves at Molineux on Monday night, with Daniel James coming in for Andreas Pereira as only alteration from their opening victory against Chelsea.
Andreas, who came in to replace Marcus Rashford in the closing stages of Monday’s match, could return to the line-up, while Juan Mata and Mason Greenwood, who came on as substitutes in last two games will hope to make a case to start. Aaron Wan-Bissaka should face his old employers
The manager could also call upon several Reds who are yet to feature so far in the 2019/20 campaign.
Nemanja Matic, Ashley Young and Axel Tuanzebe were unused substitutes against Wolves, while Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Fred and Diogo Dalot will be keen to force their way into Ole’s plans.
However, Alexis Sanchez, who arrived back late after spearheading Chile’s charge to the Copa America semi-finals, may also claim a place in the squad, despite Solskjaer having to fend off speculation linking him with a move.
“Let’s see what happens in the coming few weeks. There are still a few weeks for international transfers to go through.
”At the moment, he’s our player,” said the manager in his post-match press conference at Wolves. Long-term absentee Eric Bailly will still be missing on Saturday.
The Ivory Coast defender had surgery after being injured against Tottenham in pre-season and will be out until later in the year.
