Manchester United might miss the services of midfielder Fred as he was not spotted in the team’s meeting on Saturday.
The Brazilian midfielder has been an important player under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer despite attracting divergent opinions from fans but after his role in the club’s midweek Champions League game against Atalanta, the player seems to have picked a knock.
Solskjaer had intimated earlier that they might miss the duo of Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes for the game but the duo was spotted arriving with the rest of the team at The Lowry Hotel.
“Games like Wednesday night are always going to bring knocks and bruises and we do have two or three carrying knocks from that game. I’ll give everyone time, I hope I can pick from a fully fit squad, I might be without two or three.
“Bruno [Fernandes] might be a doubt, but he’s doing everything he can to be ready,” Solskjaer said of his injury list.
