Manchester United boss confirms fresh injury ahead of Crystal Palace clash

Dalot out injured for Manchester United

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed a fresh injury setback for Diogo Dalot ahead of the Premier League clash against Crystal Palace.

The Portuguese defender was not included in the opening two Premier League games of the season with a minor injury concern and Solskjaer has now confirmed that the 20-year-old may only return after the international break.

"It is more or less the same [squad]. Diogo is injured, he’ll be out for a little while, hopefully he’ll be back for [the games] after the international break," he was quoted as saying on the club's official website. 

United are currently occupying the fourth position in the Premier League standings after accumulating four points from their opening two matches against Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

They are scheduled to face Crystal Palace at home on Saturday and anything less than a victory will be considered as a poor result, given the visitors' struggles upfront this term.
