Jones adds to injury woes

Phil Jones out for a month

Phil Jones out for a month

 

In today’s press conference Louis Van Gaal revealed that Phil Jones is the latest to hand in his sick note, taking United’s total number of injuries to nine.

“Fellaini is more than a month away, Jones maybe three weeks or a month,” said Van Gaal.

“Carrick isn’t ready but has run for the first time on grass.”

“Johnstone has elbow problems, Smalling isn’t fit enough, Wilson and James are not ready yet. Young and Lingard are also injured,” added the United manager.

The boss had some positive news, claiming that Luke Shaw is fit and will be able to make his debut on Sunday.

It is unclear whether United will still continue with three in defence on Sunday or whether it will be a four man back line, throwing new signings Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind in at the deep end.

Regardless, it must be questioned what on earth is going on in the fitness department at United.
