Solskjaer's team news update for Wolves v United

Monday 01 April 2019 09:20

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Victor Lindelof could return for Manchester United's Premier League clash at Wolves on Tuesday night, but the Reds will still be without four players.

In our exclusive interview on Monday, the manager also said that Anthony Martial will be available after picking up a knock during Saturday’s 2-1 win over Watford.

“Anthony will be fine, he’s going to be okay,” Ole told Stewart Gardner at the Aon Training Complex.

“Victor has had a good few days of training now so he’ll be ready. Apart from that, [Matteo] Darmian and Eric [Bailly] are still out. [Antonio] Valencia is still out and Alexis Sanchez is still out. But it’s a good strong squad.”

Solskjaer also gave an update on Romelu Lukaku in his press conference, adding: "Anthony and Romelu will both be ready for tomorrow, definitely, unless they break down in training today [Monday] but it looks good, yeah." 

Victor sat out of Saturday's win over Watford.

Ole gave this update on Lindelof to reporters before Saturday's game: “Victor is not injured but he’s had some issues. He had a tough week so Victor will come back soon.”

Bailly missed the Watford match after reportedly sustaining a head injury on international duty with Ivory Coast, while Valencia and Darmian have not played since January.

Alexis is recovering from a knee injury that he sustained in our 3-2 win over Southampton on 2 March. 


As was the case for the Emirates FA Cup quarter-final on 16 March, Wolves head coach Nuno Espírito Santo has a clean bill of health and a fully fit squad to choose from for Tuesday’s match. 

The Portuguese could be tempted into some changes following Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Burnley, with this weekend’s FA Cup semi-final against Watford at Wembley Stadium also in mind. 

Wolves’ starting XI at Turf Moor was: Rui Patricio; Saiss, Coady, Boly; Traore, Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny; Cavaleiro, Diogo Jota.
