Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an injury update on the squad ahead of the final two games of this 2018-19 Premier League campaign.
The Red Devils, theoretically, still have a chance to finish in the 4th spot and qualify for the Champions League, but for that, we need to win both of our final matches and hope Chelsea and Arsenal drop points in theirs.
Ahead of our trip to the already relegated Huddersfield, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed the team news:
“Eric [Bailly] has probably been the one smiling the most out of all of us because you fear the worst,”
“You fear the cruciate. You’re always worried that it might be nine or 12 months out, but we think he’ll be back for pre-season, so that’s positive.
“There are a few little niggles, so let’s count the numbers on Sunday morning, I reckon. Mason [Greenwood] started off this week training but then he’s out injured again, unfortunately.
”We were looking at bringing him into the squad for the last two games – maybe he’ll make the last one [against Cardiff].”
Eric Bailly and Mason Greenwood are definitely out for the Huddersfield clash while Youngsters Lee O’Connor, James Garner, Angel Gomes and Tahith Chong trained with the first team alongside Antonio Valencia.
There were also doubts over the availability of Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Romelu Lukaku, thanks to small niggles, but with no updates on them, we can assume they are fit to start/feature against Huddersfield. if needed.
What would your lineup be against the Terriers?
