Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said Bruno Fernandes could miss Manchester United’s Premier League game against Liverpool on Sunday.
The 27-year-old midfielder suffered a blow this week after playing an important role in Manchester United’s 3-2 win over Atalanta in the Champions League.
As a result, Solskjaer is uncertain whether the Portugal international will be available to play against Jurgen Klopp’s men at Old Trafford.
The United boss said in his pre-match press conference: “It’s still Friday, the game is Sunday, we’re going to give everyone time. We can have the whole team. back in shape, we can have two or three players less. Today we did not have everyone [à l’entraînement]. We will see Sunday.
Not to miss
“Games like Wednesday night’s always mean guns and injuries, and we have a couple of players who wear marks from this game. I’ll give everyone some time and hope I can choose from. a group in great shape, I could forget two or three. Yes, Bruno could be uncertain, but he is doing everything he can to be ready. “
Charlotte Duncker, Manchester United’s correspondent for Goal, analyzed the situation: “The players Solskjaer has suggested as uncertain are Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Fred. These three players are expected to start at Old Trafford on Sunday.
“The Norwegian is still keen to keep any injury and team news a secret and responds regularly in press conferences telling reporters that he will not reveal his team. For this reason, it would come as no surprise if the three were fit to play against Liverpool.
“Fernandes is a key player and following his man of the match performance on Wednesday he is hoping to be there. Rashford, who has scored two goals in two games since returning from injury, will also be ready to start the game and, given that he managed to play for an extended period with a string of minor injuries, it is hoped he can get rid of his problem by Sunday. “
