Amid a crippling injury crisis which sees the club missing a slew of key first team players, Manchester United’s interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ruled out one of those players for the Premier League clash at Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, though, is hopeful to have the player back as soon as possible. Midfielders Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard limped off during the 0-0 draw with Liverpool on Sunday, a game which Anthony Martial missed altogether while striker Marcus Rashford hobbled through the game after picking up an ankle knock.

And according to Solskjaer, United could be without as many as 10 players for the trip to Crystal Palace, with the Norwegian ruling out Martial for that match no thanks to the groin injury picked up in the Champions League round of 16 first leg loss to Paris Saint-Germain earlier in February. Along with other missing players, it means the Norwegian will call on reinforcemets from the club’s academy ranks.

“Martial is not going to be ready for this one, either, we can’t risk it,” said Solskjaer ahead of the trip to south London. “So, maybe [he will be ready for] Southampton [at Old Trafford on Saturday], but we’re not going to risk another one. In hindsight, Jesse was eager, he ticked all the boxes in training, with his recovery and rehab, but maybe a couple of days too early. It was Liverpool and he was desperate to be part of it.”

Defenders Phil Jones, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia are also on the missing list. Solskjaer added: “I don’t know the list [of players] that’s supposed to be injured, Matteo [Darmian] trained the other day, I don’t think he’ll be ready, [Marcos] Rojo will be involved, Rashy we’re still waiting to see how his ankle is responding to the treatment, muscle injuries are too early to think about. That’s it.”

He added: “Phil was ill one of the days last week, so he’s been out for a little while as well with an illness. Luckily at centre-back there are quite a few fit ones, Victor [Lindelof], Chris [Smalling] and Eric [Bailly], the three of them are ready.”

Young striker Mason Greenwood, who Solskjaer has hinted is close to getting a first-team chance, is also injured. But three other youngsters – Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong and James Garner – are set to be involved. “The kids are joining in [training] today,” said Solskjaer. “They’ll be involved in the squad. They’ve been part of our training for a long time now and I’m sure Angel has been successful with England’s Under-17s, the 2017 team with Sancho, Foden and Hudson-Odoi, so he’s been a big part of that. I’m definitely sure that if he gets a chance he’ll do well.”

He added: “James Garner is a Michael Carrick but 20 years younger, I’m sure he’ll do well and Chongy will be taking people on if he comes on. They’re ready, they’re kids. It’s hard if you’re a defender coming on if you’re 16 or 17 but as an attacker you go out there and express yourself, and there’s your chance. They can win you the game, not lose it for you.”

A Luke Shaw own goal in the 12th minute was all Ernesto Valverde’s men needed to claim victory at Old Trafford.

He said: ‘We played a good team. We know you have to defend a lot without the ball and you might be tired when you get the chance yourself.

‘We go there with one thing in my mind, we have to score.’

There is no doubt United will have to score to go through to the semi-final, but the game at the Nou Camp won’t be easy by any means.

It is expected that Barcelona will dominate the second leg, leaving United with the option of playing on the counter.

Aside playing on the counter, Solskjaer will have to rely on set-pieces in order to get a goal. This is where a player like Lukaku will be useful, given his physical presence.

It remains to be seen if Lionel Messi will be able to give a better performance after a not too inspiring first leg where he was bullied by Chris Smalling.

The United defender had prior to the game said that he was ready for the challenge against Messi, urging the little Argentine to ‘bring it on’.

McTominay has made 17 appearances for United this season, scoring once.

He is a product of United’s academy and made his Premier League debut when he came on as a substitute against Arsenal on the 7th of May, 2017.

Solskjaer will be hoping the youngster continues to improve and gives a good account of himself if he is given another chance against Barcelona in the second leg.

With the future of Ander Herrera in doubt, United may have just found an ideal replacement for the Spaniard.

If he is consistent, his youthfulness and ability to put in enormous strength will make him the darling of United supporters.

At this stage, it is important for the youngster to avoid the distractions that come from being the centre of attention and focus on giving his best in training.

He should learn from previous United youngsters who have broken into the first team and failed to maintain and improve on the that got them to the top.
