Press Conference: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals United dealt triple injury blow

Manchester United are aiming to continue their improved run of form when they travel to Bournemouth on Saturday. United recorded three away wins, after failing to do so since March. Ole Gunnar’s Solskjaer’s side have regained some form but are still seven points off the top four. Ahead of the game, Solskjaer faced the press and first of all he gave an injury updates on Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Marcus Rashford. “It’s still early, hopefully, we can get them back on the pitch tomorrow, they had some treatment yesterday, a little more treatment today, light session but I can’t exactly tell you,” said Solskjaer. On Axel Tuenzebe, Nemanja Matic and Luke Shaw added: “They’re not ready for tomorrow, that’s the update. Probably after the international break, that’s always the risk if you push them back too early but the two extra weeks after internationals should be ready.” Marcus Rashford had an impressive run during the latest games, as he scored two goals for United to get them a place in the quarter-final of Carabao Cup. On Rashford’s form, Solskjaer said: “Since Anthony’s come back Marcus has blossomed, he’s probably happier facing goal, being direct driving at people, taking players on rather than target man with back to goal. But, Marcus wants to master all the skills, only just turned 22, maybe as a two with Anthony maybe as a three like we did against Norwich or wide like we did against Chelsea, different ways of playing with Marcus and it was important for him, and for me, that he stepped up for that penalty against Chelsea.” Another player who has been impressive for United is Scott McTominay, on the Scottish star, the Norwegian said: “He’s been excellent and now that him and Fred work in a good relationship, work well together did that last season, PSG, when we had a few injuries and now as well they are working as a pair. Scotty’s a leader, a Manchester United boy, you can see he’s been a striker with the goal at Norwich on a half turn, but he’s developing into a very good midfielder.” On their rivals AFC Bournemouth, Solskjaer said: “It’s gonna be a tough game, they’ve got quick forwards running in behind, direct, Josh (King), Callum Wilson, Solanke, Fraser, their attacking prowess, it is quite surprising they haven’t scored (in October) but probably fine margins as well and not conceded lots of goals, hopefully we score the first goal because they are also very dangerous on set-plays.” Source- MEN
