Manchester United are preparing to face Fulham in the Premier League on Wednesday, January 20. Ahead of the game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provided an update on his squad.
“It’s only been two days since we played but they’re vibrant again, ready to go,” said Solskjaer via Manutd.com.
“We’ve not got the COVID tests back yet, the results of them, so hopefully they’ll all pass through them and there shouldn’t be many changes.”
Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes are one booking away from a suspension and Solskjaer was asked if the potential bans come into his thinking.
“No,” Solskjaer said. “You just have to take one game at a time because if you leave them out for one game, then they might as well get a suspension for one game! [Smiles] There are a couple of games to go until the amnesty comes in, after 20 games, [the amnesty actually comes in after 19 matches] but it’s not in my thoughts.
“It really feels like we’ve got the strength in depth. I have to leave some players even out of the [matchday] squad, when they should be in the squad, but it’s a good challenge and conundrum to have for the right reasons.”
So here is how the Red Devils could lineup against Fulham: David De Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Eric Bailly, Luke Shaw; Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba; Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford; Edinson Cavani.
