United injury boost ahead of Chelsea clash
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided another update on the injury situation ahead of Sunday's Premier League game at Chelsea.
Speaking exclusively to club media at the Aon Training Complex on Friday afternoon, the boss believes Donny van de Beek can provide a boost by being available again, after missing the two games with Real Sociedad and 3-1 win over Newcastle United.
"Donny trained today and he felt okay after training so hopefully [there is] no reaction," revealed Ole. "So he should be with us. It was just a tweak [for Dan]. I need to give him until Saturday or even Sunday so, hopefully, he can shake it off, but I’m not sure.
“They [Paul Pogba and Scott] are out. They’ve not trained, Edinson hasn’t trained yet, so I wouldn’t be too optimistic about that. but miracles can happen.”
Chelsea also provided an update on their squad on Friday afternoon, with defender Thiago Silva now looking certain to be out due to injury.
Blues coach Thomas Tuchel has confirmed there are no fresh concerns following the Champions League first-leg victory against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.
