Man Utd injury updates: Three players miss training ahead of Club Brugge clash

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is only without three players ahead of Manchester United’s clash against Club Brugge on Thursday. United drew 1-1 in Belgium last week, leaving the Europa League last 32 tie evenly poised for the second leg at Old Trafford.

United trained in front of the media for 15 minutes ahead of the encounter, with 27 players filing out onto the Aon Training Complex pitches.

Only long-term absentees Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba and Lee Grant were not involved in the session.

Solskjaer revealed last week that it is ”touch or go” whether Rashford plays again this season due to the striker’s lower back injury.

Pogba underwent ankle surgery in January and United staff have earmarked a Mach return around the time of the international break.

Back-up goalkeeper Grant could miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery.

Notably, defenders Axel Tuanzebe and Timothy Fosu-Mensah both took part in training as they continue to recover from injury.

Scott McTominay was also looking sprightly after he returned to action on the weekend as a substitute in United’s 3-0 win over Watford.

Solskjaer rotated his squad for the first leg and hinted he may do the same again following the draw last week.

“We need to keep using the squad, we need to use the players and give them a chance to play their way into the team and into form,” the Norwegian coach said.

“There’s still 90 minutes to play. We’re halfway, it’s one each.

“They’ve got to come to Old Trafford and score, but we want to score as well.

“We need to think about winning the game.”
