Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has provided an update on the team news ahead of the Crystal Palace game.
The Red Devils take on Crystal Palace at the Old Trafford on Saturday after the disappointing 1-1 draw against Wolves at the Molineux Stadium.
While Paul Pogba was criticized for his penalty miss, there were also a lot of questions raised on the performance of Luke Shaw.
The 24-year-old had a poor time coming up against the quick Adama Traore who played as a wingback for Wolves in the second half.
There were a few Manchester United fans who called for the inclusion of Diogo Dalot on the left-wing after the Wolves game, but as it turns out, that won’t be happening anytime soon, as the gaffer confirmed that the Portuguese is out with an injury.
Here’s Ole Gunnar Solskajer with the team news ahead of the Crystal Palace game:
“It (the team) is more or less the same (squad).
“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 a problem for a couple of weeks. But that’s it.”

Diogo Dalot’s injury means that Ashley Young is the only proper fullback cover for either wing, that is if you don’t count the likes of the exiled Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo.
But, with only a couple of fixtures before the international break, we should be alright with Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Hopefully, Dalot will be fit and firing before we take on Leicester City at the Old Trafford on the 14th next month.
