Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that the likes of Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones and Luke Shaw are expected to miss West Brom clash this weekend.
The trio did not part in Man United’s training on Friday morning and the chances of them facing West Brom has been dashed due to their absence from training.
Luke Shaw suffered a muscle injury during United’s 3-1 win at Everton and is said to be out of action for at least four weeks. Jones and Lingard have not made a single appearance for the Reds this season and their absences have not been missed, though.
However, Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire trained with the squad on Friday and are ready to help United build from their victory at Everton when Manchester United host the Baggies at Old Trafford on Saturday night.
“The short version is Luke Shaw, Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones are the only ones who didn’t join in parts of the training today,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told MEN. “They’re at different stages.”
The likes of Anthony Martial, Maguire and Lindelof suffered several knocks whilst on international duty but the Norwegian boss has revealed that some of his first-team players have recovered while some are still hoping to be fit in time for the Baggies clash.
Solskjaer added: “Some of them had recovery after the international on Wednesday and travelled and are working back after injury and fitness and we’ll make a decision tonight but most of them have joined in today and some joined in yesterday, so looking good.
“Rashford and Lindelof? Possibles, but some of them are probably some doubts. Marcus joined in for the first time today, hopefully there’s no reaction, I’m not sure.
“Bailly, that was his first day today, so no. Him and Marcos Rojo joined for the first time in a month, at least, so they’re not ready. Victor, we’ll have to check tomorrow because his back is not great.”
