Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Scott McTominay will miss Manchester United’s Carabao Cup quarter-final against Everton with injury.
United enter the game after a stunning 6-2 win over Leeds. During their convincing win, McTominay was in inspired form, scoring twice in the first three minutes to give his team a dream start.
However, the Scotsman was replaced in the dying minutes with an alleged injury and Solskjaer has now said the blow will keep him out of Wednesday’s game, with Wan-Bissaka also struggling for his fitness.
“Those two there [Wan-Bissaka and McTominay] will definitely miss the game against Everton. Hopefully it won’t be too long. They will be out but other than that I think everyone is doing more or less well, ”he said (via the club’s official website).
Solskjaer has tended to mix up his field in the Carabao Cup this season and he has hinted that this will be the case again against Everton.
“I’m not going to give you the team! But we’re going to make some changes. There have been a few players who made it into the Carabao Cup earlier in the season and some will need to rest after the Leeds game. So it will be a new team, ”he added.
Solskjaer went on to suggest that Bruno Fernandes would likely be rested, while Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani are both in line to play. He also said Jesse Lingard – who has barely played this season – will be involved against the Toffees.
“Jesse will be on the team. He worked hard in training, ”he said (via the Express)
“He was unhappy that he had to isolate himself a few times. He has been in close contact with COVID [positive person], not even having it himself. It has been very unlucky to be absent from the training ground on several occasions. He has worked very hard and will definitely be involved in the squad on Wednesday. “
