Man Utd Confirm The 7 Players That’ll Be Absent For Southampton Clash

Southampton Clash

Manchester United welcome Southampton on Saturday to Old Trafford with an opportunity to move back into the top four IF Arsenal fail to beat Tottenham Hotspur.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke to the media today at his pre-match press conference and delivered team news and injury update ahead of the Southampton Clash.

The positive news we could take from his speech is that Marcus Rashford is going to be available to face the Saints after coming on as a substitute in our 3-1 win at Crystal Palace midweek.

Rashford had suffered an ankle injury in last Sunday’s stalemate against Liverpool.

“Rashford is fully fit now. I’ll probably start him,” Solskjaer confirmed the news to MUTV.

The United caretaker boss isn’t expecting to make too many changes from the side that won at Selhurst Park on Wednesday, which included Romelu Lukaku starting up front and Diogo Dalot down the right wing.

“I don’t think there will be many changes.

“It’s the last session today, but we’re not going to take any risks, so maybe Anthony [Martial], but it might just be even a few more days before he’s ready, so probably the squad will look similar to what it did on Wednesday,” Ole said.

Solskjaer’s comments suggest that Martial will not be available in time for the Southampton Clash, which Matteo Darmian, Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic, and Antonio Valencia have been ruled out through injury indefinitely.
