Man Utd boss Solskjaer reveals injury boost ahead of Chelsea clash

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says their medical room is clearing ahead of Sunday's clash with Chelsea.

Solskjaer believes Donny van de Beek can provide a boost by being available again, after missing the two games with Real Sociedad and 3-1 win over Newcastle United.

However, the news on Scott McTominay and Edinson Cavani is not as optimistic and Daniel James faces a race against time to recover from a knock in the 0-0 Europa League draw on Thursday.

"Donny trained today and he felt okay after training so hopefully [there is] no reaction," revealed Solskjaer on Friday. “So he should be with us. It was just a tweak [for Dan]. I need to give him until Saturday or even Sunday so, hopefully, he can shake it off, but I'm not sure.

“They [Paul Pogba and Scott] are out. They've not trained, Edinson hasn't trained yet, so I wouldn't be too optimistic about that. but miracles can happen."
