Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Marcus Rashford, Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire are all doubts for Manchester United’s trip to Bournemouth on Saturday.
The Red Devils will be aiming to extend their winning run to four matches across all competitions against the Cherries, three days after a thrilling Carabao Cup fourth-round triumph over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Solskjaer’s side had not picked up an away win since March, but victories over Partizan, Norwich and Chelsea over the last 10 days have eased the pressure on the Norwegian boss.
United can move level on points with fifth-placed Arsenal by beating Bournemouth in the weekend’s early kick-off, but they may be without three key performers at the Vitality Stadium.
Solskjaer confirmed at a press conference on Friday that Rashford, Lindelof and Maguire will face late fitness tests: “It’s still early. Hopefully, we can get them back on the pitch tomorrow.
“They had some treatment yesterday, a little more today, a light session and hopefully, they’re ready. I can’t tell you exactly now.”
The United manager went on to give an update on Luke Shaw, Nemanja Matic and Axel Tuanzebe’s recovery progress following recent injuries, stating: “They’re not ready for tomorrow, that’s the update.”
