Manchester United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has a few injury concerns to be worried about ahead of this weekend’s Premier League showdown at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea and Manchester United will meet for the reverse fixture after a goalless draw at Old Trafford back in October.

The likes of Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay appear to be out of Sunday’s clash according to the United boss, although we have reasons to believe that Cavani may play this game.

Solskjaer said on Cavani: “Edinson hasn’t trained yet, so I wouldn’t be too optimistic about that (facing Chelsea), but miracles can happen.”

On Pogba and McTominay, Solskjaer said as he ruled the duo out of the game: “They (McTominay and Paul Pogba) are out. They’ve not trained.”

Solskjaer gave positive update on Donny van de Beek, who also has a muscle problem which has kept him out of the past three matches for Manchester United.

Solskjaer said: “Donny trained today (Friday) and he felt OK after training so hopefully (there is) no reaction. So he should be with us.”
