Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gives injury update on Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard and others

Manchester United caretaker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tells the club’s faithful that he believes he will welcome all his injured players back to action before the month ends.

United were without seven of their first team player as they lost 2-0 to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening.

Solskjaer’s side have survived without ten of their senior players during Wednesday’s 3-1/ win at PSG but while it looks like United aren’t affected with the absence of these players, the Norwegian would really want his side to be fully for ahead of busy April.

Man United are likely to face up to eight games in 28 days during the month and Solskjaer says he hopes to have a full squad after the upcoming international break.

Asked whether he’d now have to prioritise the Champions League or the Premier League, Solskajer replied: ‘No, we don’t have to choose with injuries we’ve had lately.

‘That’s given us a great chance to give players playing time and game-time and they’re coming back maybe for Wolves but after the international break we’ve got a full squad fit.

‘The ones who’ve come in when the regulars have been injured have done really well, so we’ll be ready for that.’

Last weekend, Nemanja Matic and Anthony Martial featured for United but their presence cod stop the Gunners from taking all three points against the Red Devils.
