Manchester United without six players for Chelsea clash

Six United players to miss Chelsea trip

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that there won't be any players making their injury comebacks for the upcoming Premier League clash against Chelsea.

The Red Devils received a boost during the winter break with the likes of Scott McTominay and Axel Tuanzebe taking part in light training but Solskjaer has now indicated that they are not ready for the Monday night game.

“I don’t think we’ll get anyone back for the Chelsea FC game. Because Scotty, Axel, Tim, they didn’t join too much so they’re not ready to play that game. And Paul is not ready, of course,” he told in a press conference via Goal.com.

Elsewhere, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Paul Pogba are likewise out of contention as they continue with their respective rehabilitation programmes while Lee Grant and Marcus Rashford are injured.

Grant requires a surgery for an undefined injury and that is expected to keep him out of action for a few months. Rashford may not return until the end of March after suffering a double stress fracture in his back.
