Solskjaer confirms attacker comeback


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Jesse Lingard has returned from a hamstring problem ahead of the Europa League clash against Partizan Belgrade.

The England international sustained the injury during the closing stages of the 0-0 draw against AZ Alkmaar this month and he has since been absent for the meetings against Newcastle United and Liverpool.

Speaking ahead of the Partizan game, Solskjaer has confirmed that the United graduate is back in contention for the first-team duties but he has yet to decide on the attacker’s playing time against the Serbian opponents.

“It’s fantastic to have him back fit. He’s been so lively and bubbly in training. I don’t know how much game time we’ll give him but he looks like he needs to catch up on lost time,” he told MUTV.

Manchester United have failed to win any of their previous 11 matches away from home and Solskjaer will be hoping that the Red Devils can put the unwanted record to bed against Partizan.

Lampard delivers injury update on two players


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has provided an update on Ross Barkley and Cesar Azpilicueta ahead of the Champions League clash against Ajax.

The Blues secured a close 1-0 win over Newcastle United in the Premier League at the weekend but there were injury concerns for Barkley and Azpilicueta.

In a report covered by Football.London, Lampard said that Barkley ‘turned his ankle’ during the Magpies game and stated that the England international would be assessed ahead of the midweek clash.

Meanwhile, Azpilicueta appeared to be struggling with a foot injury towards the end of the Magpies encounter but Lampard feels the defender has not suffered any injury of concern.

Chelsea have won their last five games on the bounce under Lampard and they are currently occupying the fourth spot in the Premier League standings with 17 points on the board.

In Europe, the Blues have attained three points from the opening two Champions League games and face a crucial period ahead with the double header against Ajax – starting with the away game on Wednesday night.

Manchester United suffer fresh injury blow for Arsenal clash

Wan-Bissaka out of Arsenal game?


Manchester United have received an unexpected injury blow with Aaron Wan-Bissaka unlikely to participate in tonight’s Premier League clash against Arsenal.

The England international has been ever-present for the Red Devils this season and he has missed just one game in the Europa League against Astana, where he was rested.

However, in the lead up to the Gunners clash, he seems to have suffered a mystery injury and that is expected to see him sidelined for the Premier League encounter, The Mirror reports.

Aside from Wan-Bissaka, Diogo Dalot is also unavailable for the game with a knock and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may go with either Axel Tuanzebe or Ashley Young on the right side of the defence.

Meanwhile, there are some positives on the injury front with Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford tipped to make the matchday squad after passing late fitness tests.

United are presently four points behind the final Champions League spot and Solskjaer will be hoping for a positive result against the Gunners, who are one of their top four rivals.

Chelsea receive double injury boost


Chelsea have received a fresh injury boost with young duo Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James tipped to return to first-team action following the ongoing international break.

Hudson-Odoi suffered a serious Achilles injury during the penultimate month of the previous campaign but he has made a swift recovery to participate with the Blues in regular training.

James, meanwhile, has been a short-term absentee following the ankle problem sustained on England Under-20 duty but he appears close to making his Blues debut after similarly returning to first-team training.

According to injury analyst Ben Dinnery, both players are set to make their injury comebacks following the international break and they could take the playing field by the end of the month.

Hudson-Odoi’s absence has not hampered the team drastically with the emergence of Mason Mount while Tammy Abraham has been able to show his goalscoring exploits.

On the other hand, James has been regarded as the future choice for the right-back spot but he could be handed with an early debut, considering the poor form of Cesar Azpilicueta in the role this season.
