Manchester United

Solskjaer provides positive injury update

11th March 2019, 18:11 by James Mason

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expecting to have a fully-fit Manchester United squad to choose from after the international break.

The Red Devils have been plagued with injuries over the past couple of weeks and the 20-time English champions are still without Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Alexis Sanchez, Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard, Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian.

Solskjaer has been forced to fill the bench with youngsters while the likes of Scott McTominay, Fred and Andreas Pereira have all seen more game-time of late than they would have expected.

However, the Norwegian is expecting to have everyone back to full fitness after the international break, although he hinted certain players are pushing to be involved in the FA Cup clash with Wolves this weekend.

"No, we don't have to choose with injuries we've had lately," he said. "That's given us a great chance to give players playing time and game-time and they're coming back maybe for Wolves but after the international break we've got a full squad fit.

"The ones who've come in when the regulars have been injured have done really well, so we'll be ready for that."
