Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given an injury update on his squad as Manchester United prepare to face Wolves in the FA Cup quarter-finals this weekend.
Solskjaer’s side travel to Molineux to face Wolves on Saturday evening, with a place in the last four up for grabs as the Norwegian seeks the first trophy of his Old Trafford reign.
Manchester United‘s squad has bee decimated by injuries in recent weeks, though Solskjaer revealed that midfield duo Ander Herrera and Jesse Lingard are nearing returns, although in-form forward Romelu Lukaku, who has scored six goals in his past four appearances, will be assessed as he recovers from a foot problem.
“We’re still getting players [back],” Solksjaer told MUTV.
“They’ve been training better this week so Jesse [Lingard] and Ander [Herrera] have been training. Rom[elu Lukaku] has a sore foot so he will be assessed this morning [Friday] so let’s see if he can join in. Phil Jones is back so we’re looking stronger.”
“Mason [Greenwood] has been ill, so he’s not trained this week. He might be training this morning so let’s see how he is.”
Solskjaer was also full of praise for deputy goalkeeper Sergio Romero, with the Argentina international having excelled when given an opportunity in the domestic cup competitions this season.
“Sergio [Romero] been absolutely fantastic and he must have the world record for clean sheets in the percentage of games he’s played. He’s kept nine [clean sheets] in the last 11 games, or something like that, in the FA Cup so that’s fantastic.”
