Ole Gunnar Solskjaer offers harm replace on Paul Pogba and Eric Bailly
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has released an injury update ahead of tomorrow’s FA Cup game against West Ham United tomorrow.
The Red Devils have recently lost momentum in the league with just one win from four games, but are desperate to reach the final eight of the cup competition.
Before the game, Solskjaer provided an update to MUTV in which he announced that up to three players will miss the Hammers fight.
Pogba had a thigh problem in the first half of the 3-3 Premier League draw against Everton last weekend and is about to end.
“It is an injury that will take a few weeks to heal,” he was quoted as saying on the club’s official website today.
“He has just started his recovery and is working with the medical staff. We will get him back as quickly and safely as possible.
“Of course Paul was very important to us and we won’t take any chances. [So it is] Definitely a couple of weeks. “
Meanwhile, Solskjaer has announced that Eric Bailly is apparently excluded because he has not fully recovered from a reported shin injury after a minor car accident.
Aside from the duo, Phil Jones remains out of competition as he is still in rehab after undergoing knee surgery last year.
“Eric is getting better – we don’t think he’s available for the cup game tomorrow,” he added.
“He was out on the grass training and we will make a decision tomorrow. I don’t think he will be involved. “
“Everyone [else] is available and trained this morning, apart from Phil [Jones] who is still out. “
One of United’s top performers since December, Pogba has scored three major goals including winners at Fulham and Burnley.
He was offered a much-needed respite against Southampton, but it was unfortunate that he suffered an injury in the following game against Everton.
In his absence, Fred and Scott McTominay should be the regular decisions in the central midfield, with Nemanja Matic and Donny van de Beek providing support.
Meanwhile, Bailly was constant in central defense whenever he got the chance, and he started five of the six league games before taking the setback.
Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire were far from impressive in the 3-3 draw against the Toffees and Bailly could return to the starting XI as soon as he is fully fit again.
