Ole Gunnar Solskjaer speaks to the press.

Ole's team news update for Palace encounter

Friday 23 August 2019 09:44

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided the latest news on his squad ahead of Saturday's visit of Crystal Palace to Old Trafford.

Unfortunately, the Reds have picked up another injury recently, with Diogo Dalot out of action until after the international break next month.

The Portuguese full-back joins fellow defenders Eric Bailly and Tim Fosu-Mensah on the sidelines but the rest of the first-team group should be available for our third match of the Premier League campaign.

Speaking to MUTV before his pre-match press conference, Ole said: "Diogo is injured, he'll be out for a little while, hopefully he'll be back for [the games] after the international break.

"He's had that problem for a couple of weeks. But that's it. [The squad is] more or less the same."

Diogo Dalot faces a spell on the sidelines after sustaining an injury.

The manager made one change from his XI for the opener against Chelsea, when Daniel James replaced Andreas Pereira for the 1-1 draw with Wolves on Monday. His line-up at Molineux was the youngest for any club in a top-flight fixture in 2019/20.

It is anticipated that Aaron Wan-Bissaka will feature against his former club this weekend, and the manager should not be short of options for his selection. Juan Mata, Pereira and Mason Greenwood all came off the bench last time out and must be in Ole's thoughts.

Palace are without centre-backs James Tomkins and Mamadou Sakho but former Chelsea man Gary Cahill could make his debut.

Ex-Reds winger Wilfried Zaha seems certain to start for Roy Hodgson's side, who have one point from their two fixtures this season.

United welcome Crystal Palace to Old Trafford, with kick-off at 15:00 BST on Saturday. You can still book a Matchday VIP Experience.
