Solskjaer confirms three Man United players suffered injury against Everton

Manchester United manager, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, has confirmed his side recorded three injuries during the match away at Everton on Saturday.

The Red Devils returned to winning ways with a fine 3-1 display against the Toffees, to earn a first win in three matches.

Bruno Fernandes was the standout performer, with two goals and an assist, but other players like Edinson Cavani, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford were also impressive.

The win has surely given Solskjaer some breathing room, but after the match, the gaffer revealed there was some bitter news due to injuries.

According to the Norwegian, the likes of Luke Shaw, Victor Lindelof and Marcus Rashford all sustained an injury during the game, with Shaw’s own looking the most serious.

Speaking to MUTV about the injuries, Solskjaer said, “Yes. Victor’s back, Marcus’s shoulder, Luke Shaw’s hamstring. That’s three I can remember from the top of my head.

“I hope everyone else is okay. David didn’t play [in midweek] but he had a groin problem before the game.”

Solskjaer also lamented the fixture schedule for United in a rant against Premier League bosses, and blamed it for the injury to Shaw.

He told BT Sport, “Luke Shaw has got injured because of it [fixture congestion]. It’s a hamstring which might be a long one.

“The kick-off time set us up to fail. It’s an absolute shambles. The boys deserve better. Let us play on a Sunday, there’s an international break, it’s a joke.”
