Ole Gunnar Solkjaer has confirmed Manchester United will be without one key player for Sunday’s clash with Arsenal.
Ole Gunnar Solkjaer said “Alex won’t be ready, no, so apart from that I would think everyone else looks like they could be involved. Yeah he’s been out now for a little while because he has tested positive for coronavirus. No symptoms, he’s fine and we can’t wait to have him back. Solskajer also confirmed the latest on goalkeeper Sergio Romero and defender Phil Jones, who are both working their way back from long-term setbacks. Well, Sergio [Romero] has just come back into training this week, so he’s started his pre-season work and is working to get to his peak fitness with the goalkeepers. Phil has been injured and had an operation and working really hard to be back, hopefully he’ll get fit in December, when you’re injured you can’t get into the squad, he’s working really diligently and he’ll be coming back soon.”
United will be looking to build on those performances – as well as a goalless draw with Chelsea in the league – this weekend when they welcome old rivals Arsenal. But they won’t be helped by a positive coronavirus test which will keep out new signing Alex Telles, the full-back only managing one appearance so far for United since his move from Porto.
The Gunners head to Old Trafford looking to respond to consecutive Premier League defeats at the hands of Manchester City and Leicester City respectively. Though, in the last couple of weeks, Arsenal have won both of their Europa League games, beating Rapid Wien and Dundalk in their opening group stage outings. But they aren’t the only ones to get off to a flying start in Europe, Manchester United making headlines for their performances in the Champions League, beating PSG and then thrashing RB Leipzig this week.
