Manchester United interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had to deal with plenty of injury concerns over their hectic period recently. Manchester United have reportedly suffered a fresh injury blow ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final clash with Wolves. In-form striker Romelu Lukaku has undergone a scan on a foot injury which will keep him out of the trip to Molineux on Saturday evening, according to The Sun.
The 25-year-old is being closely monitored by United medics and is reportedly set to miss out on international duty with Belgium as he eyes a quick return to action. It is hoped he’ll be ready to face their Champions League quarter-final next month, with the draw due to take place on Friday ahead of a tie on April 9 or 10.
Lukaku underwent treatment to his right ankle after a challenge from Marquinhos in the second half of United’s remarkable comeback against Paris Saint-Germain. The knock then flared up as he fired blanks in their 2-0 Premier League defeat at Arsenal on Sunday leaving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still short on options in attack.
Anthony Martial returned the their squad at the Emirates and could be in line to start against Wolves. But Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata are still set to be sidelined whilst Jesse Lingard is struggling with the hamstring injury he suffered against Liverpool last month.
Solskjaer has shown he is not afraid to involve youth in his first team setup during their recent injury crisis. Lukaku’s blow could open the door for Mason Greenwood to be involved at Molineux after he made his first team debut as a substitute in Paris.
Fellow academy prospects Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes and James Garner have also featured under Solskjaer, who will have to manage his squad carefully during a huge spell. The Red Devils are right in the hunt for the Premier League top four as well as being in the last eight of the Champions League and FA Cup.
