Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided a big injury boost ahead of the club’s Premier League clash against Norwich City at Old Trafford on Saturday.
The Red Devils were without the services of Harry Maguire for the midweek League Cup semi-final first-leg against Manchester City due to a hip concern and Solskjaer indicated shortly after that game that the centre-back could miss out on the Canaries clash.
However, speaking in the press conference ahead of the weekend’s league meeting, the Norwegian has provided a positive injury boost by stating that the 26-year-old has a chance to feature against Daniel Farke’s side.
“He’s got a chance of tomorrow so we’ll give him today training and see if he gets through that one because it wasn’t a bad one. We’ll see tomorrow,” he told MUTV earlier on Friday.
United have experienced plenty of injury setbacks this season and they have recently been hampered in the central midfield department with both Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay on the sidelines.
As a result, Solskjaer may have to deal with Maguire’s situation with extra caution and the Englishman should not make the playing field for the upcoming league contest unless he has completely got over his problem.
The Red Devils are currently placed sixth in the Premier League standings with 31 points on the board. They are winless since the beginning of the year but can turn things around when the Canaries visit Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, there is more positive news with both Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah having featured for the Under-23s. The duo are bidding to improve their fitness after returning from long-term knee injury setbacks.
