Ole's injury update for Palace trip
Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given an extensive update on his squad's health ahead of Wednesday's match away to Crystal Palace.
“Well, the three we had to take off [Herrera, Lingard, Mata], they're not going to be ready,”Solskjaer told MUTV.
“As for Rashy [Marcus Rashford], we're going to work on him for as long as we can to see if he gets ready because that wasn't as bad as we first feared, so luckily I don't think we damaged it any more by him finishing the game.
“He might have a chance of playing. Then again I don't think there'll be anyone else coming back for this game. So there'll be a chance for the kids.”
“Matteo [Darmian] trained the other day, I don't think he'll be ready yet, because he trained yesterday.
“Marcos [Rojo] has been training, so hopefully will be involved. The muscle injuries - it's still early to think about them. There are quite a few players out.”
“Phil has been ill, so he's been out for a little while as well with an illness, but luckily at centre-back position there's quite a few fit ones. Eric, Chris and Victor, the three of them, they're ready.”
“Valencia is a bit off, because he did his calf again, so he's still a few weeks off. He's started running, but he's still a few weeks off.
“Martial is not going to be ready for this one either. We can't risk it, so maybe [he'll be back for] Southampton but we're not going to risk another one too early.
“In hindsight maybe you can say Jesse was eager, he ticked all the boxes in training, had done all the recovery work and rehab, but maybe it was a couple of days too early, but then again it was Liverpool and he was desperate to be a part of it.”
