EPL: Man Utd facing injury crisis ahead of Chelsea clash


Manchester United is facing an injury crisis ahead of Thursday’s clash against Chelsea.

Interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, has said he has just 14 senior players available.

Harry Maguire and Jadon Sancho are the latest to join the list of missing players. Maguire has not been able to train because of a knee injury while Sancho is ill and Aaron Wan-Bissaka is also a doubt.

“We have quite a few players missing tomorrow and one or two still with question marks,” Rangnick added.

“Fred is unfortunately not yet available, he tried to train yesterday and afterwards I had a conversation with him and with a player like Fred, it doesn’t make sense with a muscular injury to play him too early as we would take the risk of re-injury.

“Harry is not available tomorrow, he has some issues with his knee. He didn’t train yesterday and today. Paul [Pogba], Fred, Luke Shaw, Edinson [Cavani], Jadon is ill — he has had tonsillitis since yesterday and couldn’t train today and won’t be available.

“We will try to play the best possible team. Right now we have 14 in our team and the youngsters available and three or four [young] players will be part of the squad.”
