Man Utd injury latest on Alex Telles, Luke Shaw, Marcus Rashford and others

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping to have Marcus Rashford fit on Saturday.

The 23-year-old was forced to sit out of the current international break due to a shoulder injury that he suffered late on during the important 3-1 win over Everton earlier in the month.

As well as Rashford, there have been doubts over several first-team options, as well as a few players that won’t be able to play for the foreseeable future.

Daily Star Sport have now listed the latest updates, with further details on Luke Shaw and Alex Telles.

Rashford was forced to withdraw from Gareth Southgate’s England squad due to his injury, but his issue is not thought to be serious. The forward is likely to play some part for United next weekend.

Shaw picked up a hamstring injury during the aforementioned victory, and subsequent scans have shown that he will be out of action until the middle of November.

Solskjaer said: "We've got Shaw injured today because we've been to Turkey, we've played loads of games already this season.

“We've been to Turkey on Wednesday night, back on Thursday and we're playing Saturday at lunchtime it's an absolute shambles."

Telles, who had been tipped to step in for Shaw, is now available again after testing positive for COVID-19 ahead of the clash against the Toffees – and is likely to start against West Brom.

While Eric Bailly is also available for selection, Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones could remain out.

Solskjaer added of the recent scheduling issues: "You have to understand how these players in these times, pandemic, how mentally draining that is, how physically draining that is and they set them up like this.

“We’ve lost Luke Shaw because of that. That’s it.

“Set us up on a Sunday, there’s absolutely no problem for us to play on a Sunday. There’s an international break after, no argument whatsoever, it’s just a joke.

“Top (performance). Fantastic afternoon after a Thursday morning coming back, I go back to that one all the time and they’ve shown that today. They’re not gonna have the pleasure of seeing us lose again.”
