Man Utd news: Solskjaer delivers injury update ahead of Chelsea clash | Football | Sport
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ruled a string of players out of Monday’s Premier League clash against Chelsea. Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay and Axel Tuanzebe are all unavailable for the trip to Stamford Bridge.
Rashford is sidelined by a back injury while Pogba (ankle) is still trying to work his way back to full fitness. McTominay (knee) and Tuanzebe (muscle problems) trained with the first-team group at their warm-weather training camp in Marbella but are not ready to return to action. Timothy Fosu-Mensah (knee) is also unavailable despite stepping up his training programme.
Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Solskjaer said: “I don’t think we’ll get anyone back for the Chelsea game
“Scotty, Axel and Tim didn’t join in too much, so they’re not ready to play that game. Paul is not ready, of course.
“How do we go about playing without Marcus, Paul, Scott? You deal with it.
“We’ve got players who are going to get a chance. They’ve now had a rest, a great rest.”
