Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms injury boost for key attacker ahead of Partizan clash
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.
