Ole Gunnar Solskjaer offers positive Man United injury update before Bournemouth match

Manchester United have made it two wins from two under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with the Reds looking far more threatening in the process.

Credit has to go to the Baby Faced Assassin who has seemingly changed the dressing room atmosphere to an extremely positive one almost overnight.

The players want to play for him, they want to work hard and give their best, and perhaps that’s why we’re seeing some lads return back from injury slightly quicker than they would if Jose Mourinho were in charge.

Ahead of the game against Bournemouth at Old Trafford this weekend, the manager has confirmed that several players are back in light training, and the only real injury concern right now is Chris Smalling, who’ll be out for another two or so weeks with a foot problem.

“We’ve not had a lot of training since [the Huddersfield game],” Solskjaer is quoted as saying by United’s official website.

“We had yesterday [Thursday] off so today is the first day back.”

“Romelu [Lukaku], Anthony [Martial] and Alexis were [in] light [training] yesterday so hopefully, they can join part of the training today and let’s see after they’ve come through. Marcos [Rojo] and Scott [McTominay] look like they can take part very soon as well, so it’s looking better.”

It’s just great to see that we’re almost back to a full squad. Anthony Martial looked electric against Cardiff before his bout of food poisoning, and I cannot wait to see how both Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez get on with a new manager at the helm.

Perhaps this is what the whole squad needed to push them on and reignite that fire in their bellies. We may now finally see a hungry Lukaku banging in the goals once again as he’ll be allowed to play with the shackles completely off.

If we can put in another dominant display this Sunday, the sky really is the limit for this talented squad. It does make you wonder whether if we’d have let Mourinho go earlier, we may have found ourselves within a title race.
