Fred will be given Man United chance - Solskjaer

Gary Neville's warning to Manchester United's owners over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he gives his verdict on Liverpool

Solskjaer admitted on Monday that he would be "very surprised" if Marcus Rashford is able to shake off an ankle injury in time to face Roy Hodgson's side having played through the pain on Sunday. That means he may be approaching a return just when United need him most.

"It's probably linked, yes", said Solskjaer.

Solskjaer was forced to make three substitutions before half-time on Sunday, including bringing Lingard on and then off again, leaving United with the bare bones to cope with three games in six days.

Fans often look towards the May fixtures to see who has the upper hand in the title race and Liverpool will be delighted with their final three games this term.

Liverpool midfielder James Milner spoke afterwards and said, " We want to win every game, no matter who it's against, and we know we can. United need a natural-born scorer and, if he returns to fitness quickly, Greenwood has the ideal chance with others unavailable.

Solskjaer has tried to do something about that but the drive to do more has come at a cost.

It was a perceptive but timely response to criticism after successive goalless draws against Bayern Munich and Manchester United. Around the box we couldn't open them up as often as we'd like.




"Muscle is not so hard to get rid of".

"And Solskjaer told reporters: "[Fred needs to] play well when he gets the chance, keep training, keep working as he does.

"The two are good mates and they link up well together, so this might be a chance for those two together to find some form and give us a selection headache for when everyone gets fit".

"It's not like we've been really bogged down with too many games".

"We've not had a session yet, so I don't think there are a lot of positives".

Marcos Rojo, limited to just two starts this season, is back after missing the last two months, while Scott McTominay and Andreas Pereira are set to feature after stepping in against Liverpool.

"It was obviously a game they were anxious about for multiple good reasons, but to have a team down to using all their substitutes before half time, with their striker Marcus Rashford, remember, nearly coming off the pitch because Jordan Henderson took him out with a very nasty tackle from behind early on in the game". Solskjaer said: "Angel has been successful with England Under-17s, there with (Jadon) Sancho, (Callum) Hudson-Odoi and (Phil) Foden, so, he has been a big part of that and I am definitely sure that if he gets the chance, he'll do well".
