Players who can fill in during injury crises for United.

Manchester United are facing a major injury crisis at the moment after three first team players were taken off within 30 minutes all due to hamstring on Sunday against the scousers. They will now be facing Crystal Palace without 10 first team regulars.

Rashford who was taken down by Henderson in the first minute of the game had to continue after Lingard had to be taken back and is due some much needed rest, we still don’t have an update on when he will be back. Here is the list of players who can possibly start against Palace.

Here are the players who can be used in place of the unfit ones.

1. Andreas Pereira

Pereira made his Premier League debut against Tottenham Hotspur, coming on as a 77th-minute substitute for Juan Mata in a 3–0 win for United. He joined Spanish club Granada on loan where he scored three goals and then joined Valencia in 2017. He has proved he is worthy of playing in the red shirt more often and can be a good replacement for Herrera.

2. Diogo Dalot

Young Portuguese full-back Signed for United on a five-year contract for a fee of £19 million. Have been compared with Manchester United great Gary Neville, but is focused on writing his own history at Old Trafford. He has made just 8 appearances for the reds till now and its time he is given more chances to prove himself.

3. Scott Mc Tominay

Hailed by Ole Gunner as “new Darren Fletcher”, McTom has been a good replacement for Matic who was injured in the training session before the big game on Sunday. He acquitted himself well against a Liverpool midfield holding the fort during an extraordinary first half which saw three substitutions within 45 minutes.

4. Fred.

Solskjear haven’t played Fred despite injury crises and United fans are not liking it. The reds have potentially nine players unavailable and are unlikely to be available for the away trip to Selhurst Park on Wednesday.

McTominay was terrific against Liverpool but fans are still desperate to have Fred in the starting lineup for the next fixture.

OGS on younger players:

“They have been part of our training for a long time. Angel has been with Eng U-17s with Sancho, Foden, Hudson-Odoi. Garner is a Michael Carrick but 20 years younger, Chongy will be taking people on. They are ready.”

List of players who are injured:

“I don’t know the list that’s supposed to be injured, Matteo Darmian trained the other day, I don’t think he’ll be ready, Rojo has been training so hopefully will be involved, Rashy we’re still waiting to see how his ankle is responding to the treatment, muscle injuries are too early to think about. That’s it. There’s quite a few out.

“Phil was ill one of these days, so he’s been out for a little while as well with an illness. Luckily at centre-back, there are quite a few fit ones, Bailly, Smalling and Lindelof, the three of them are ready.”

On Valencia, Martial and Lingard:

Valencia is a bit off because he did his calf again, he’s started running, but he’s still a few weeks off. Martial is not going to be ready for this one, either, we can’t risk it. So maybe Southampton but we’re not going to risk another one too early. Jesse Lingard was eager against Liverpool. He ticked all the boxes in training, had done all the recovery work and rehab but maybe a couple of days too early. Then again, it was Liverpool and he was desperate to be part of it.
