Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has given injury updates on the following players ahead of the Premier League clash against Crystal Palace tomorrow.
The Red Devils who are fighting to finish on the fourth spot might be without few players for the remainder of the three Premier League games.
Van Gaal confirmed earlier today that midfielder Michael Carrick has been ruled out for rest of the season. The Englishman suffered an injury last month during a Premier League game against Manchester City. He has missed the three defeats against Champions Chelsea, Everton and West Brom in the league.
LVG told MUTV: “Carrick is not available, it was more heavy than we thought.”
Meanwhile there is some good news for the United fans as Luke Shaw has returned from his minor injury. Also, centre-back Jonny Evans is back but will not start as the boss said he doesn’t have match rhythm.
Another defender Marcos Rojo is back to full fitness along with youngster James Wilson who was out with illness. The boss added that James Wilson could start from the bench.
Full-back Rafael is the only defender who is out now.
Manchester United need only five points from their last three games to seal the fourth spot. They will face Arsenal and Hull City after the Palace game.
