INJURIES

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his Manchester United side came through our first Premier League match in over three months with no new injuries.

Paul Pogba, who hadn’t played for United since Boxing Day due to an ankle problem, and Marcus Rashford – originally ruled out for most of the remainder of the campaign with a back injury prior to the COVID-19 pandemic – both featured against Tottenham Hotspur, with the latter playing the full 90 minutes.

Pogba made a significant impact as a substitute and has a claim to be a starter for the upcoming visit of Sheffield United, on Wednesday 24 June.

Pogba's return provides a welcome boost for Solskjaer's side.

Victor Lindelof limped off 10 minutes before the end in North London, but Solskjaer seemingly confirmed he would be OK to feature against the Blades.

“Yeah. We don’t have any other injury issues,” the Norwegian told club media. “I think they all managed to get through the game. They were tired towards the end, some of them, but we’ve got another 90 minutes under our belt and we’re ready to go again.”

Rashford is the Reds' leading goalscorer in 2019/20, with 19 strikes in 31 games.

United’s only injury concerns remain defenders Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones.

Tuanzebe last featured prior to Christmas, while Jones hasn’t played since January’s FA Cup tie against Tranmere - and both missed out on our visit to the capital.

Axel Tuanzebe
Axel Tuanzebe missed the Spurs match, along with Phil Jones.

“Yeah we’ve got a couple of injuries,” Ole told MUTV’s Stewart Gardner on 18 June, prior to the Spurs game. “Axel will probably be missing and Phil Jones will be missing. Apart from that I would say everyone else is available for selection.

“Pre-season you want to give everyone a chance, everyone the same opportunity to stake a claim for the team. Everyone will play a part, we’ve got plenty of games. Hopefully we’ve got a few cup games, plus the league games and hopefully the Europa League, so we’ll be going into August some time.”
