Manchester United have been given some positive injury news ahead of our game vs Liverpool tomorrow.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United did their job brilliantly on Thursday night, meaning they come into this game against their old enemy in great sprits.
Beating Liverpool is always fun. No doubt the Red Devils will be going all-out for the victory here – not only to boost our hopes of finishing second but also denting Liverpool’s chances of clawing their way into the top four.
Ahead of the game, the manager gave us some positive injury news in his pre-match press conference. Only two players are missing through injury (Phil Jones, Anthony Martial), with nobody suffering a problem in the aftermath of our 6-2 win over AS Roma.
Check out what Solskjaer had to say on the injury front ahead of our game vs Liverpool here:
“No it doesn’t look like we got any bad injuries,” Solskjaer told ManUtd.com on Friday.
“Obviously the first morning [after] you’re tired. The second day you feel if there is any longer effects on your body – I needed a few days towards the end of my career to recover from games like that [Roma]!”
This is great news. We’re at that stage in the season where we need all our top stars fit and ready to play. To learn that nobody picked up an issue in that physical game against Roma is massive.
Although the temptation must be to rest players for the second leg, I think if you’re Solskjaer, you have to go as strong as possible. Solidify your position behind Manchester City while keeping the confidence flowing.
As the gaffer states, perhaps the older players, like Edinson Cavani, are still in recovery mode after the Roma game, but you’d hope that El Matador has plenty of time to get himself feeling as close to 100% for this one. No doubt the Uruguayan would have some fun with that average Liverpool backline.
Plus, it’s Liverpool. Who doesn’t want to play against them? You can bet your bottom dollar Bruno Fernandes is banging on the gaffer’s door, begging him not to be rested here, as he always wants to play when fit.
It’s a shame they’ll be no fans in Old Trafford for this one, particularly with all the protests that are taking place this weekend. It would have been a lively Theatre of Dreams, that’s for sure!
