For Manchester United, the sky is the limit. We’re finally starting to see just how talented this squad is. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is allowing his superstars to play with freedom. We’re reaping the rewards.
Last season, the Red Devils’ Champions League campaign was one to forget. Sevilla dumped us out after getting a result against us at Old Trafford. This time, the task is greater, but the confidence is flowing.
Ahead of the eagerly anticipated encounter, Solskjaer has given us all an injury update – and I’m pleased to say it’s good news. There is only two casualties, with Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian still sidelined.
“We’re missing Antonio [Valencia] and Matteo [Darmian] – they’re the two that are not available,” Solskjaer told MUTV.
“It’s a big, strong and healthy squad which is always [good] when the big games come up – many to pick from.”
This means that both Marcus Rashford and Victor Lindelof should be fit to play. The former was only well enough for a spot on the bench against Fulham, while the latter missed out on the squad completely.
It’s great news that both these two are ready to go as they’ve been up there amongst our best performers this term. Who’d have thought that Lindelof is now our key defender, eh?
Anyway, this gives Solskjaer options aplenty going into a crucial point in our season. Hopefully, the lads can do the business at the Theatre of Dreams tomorrow night and take a nice lead to Paris for the return fixture.
