Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given a positive update on the club’s injury situation.
When asked whether the club needed to prioritise the league, FA Cup or the Champions League, the Norwegian replied:
“No, we don’t have to choose. Because with the injuries we’ve had lately, that’s given us a great chance to give players game time. And they are coming back, maybe for Wolves.”
“But after the international break we’ll have a full squad fit and the ones who’ve come in when the regulars have been injured have done really well. We’ll be ready for that.”
Fans on Twitter are hoping that Solskjaer mixes up his selection against Wolves on Saturday with the injury crisis easing:

Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata seem to be on their way back to full fitness after taking part in training last week.
Those three will likely be back in contention for the FA Cup quarter-final at the weekend. That will still leave four others on the treatment table.
Fullback Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian are still out of action, while Phil Jones has been out for a while with illness. Alexis Sanchez is the only player out for the long term with a knee injury.
However, Solskjaer’s comments suggest he is confident of having the Chilean available after the international break as well.
