Lingard and Martial F365

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful both Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard will have recovered from injury in time for Liverpool’s visit to  Old Trafford on Sunday.

Martial and Lingard were injured during the first half of United’s Champions League defeat to PSG last week and initially it was thought they but the attacking pair appear to have made swift recoveries from groin and hamstring problems respectively in time for the most anticipated Premier League clash of the weekend.

“We’re looking OK,” Solskjaer said at his pre-match press conference. “I hope Jesse will be OK. More hope and think that Anthony will be OK, but we’ve got two more days so they’ve got to get through these two sessions.

“They’ve not been part of it yet but they’ve been doing some recovery work.

“Anthony’s was a different muscle, so we think that he might be ready and hope that Jesse will.

“Every single player has the attributes to give us something and the way we played against Chelsea shows we can manage without them as well.

“We’ve got options, it’s a big squad, good players, everyone’s eager and they want to play in this game, some have not played so much if they get a chance in this game it’s a chance to step forward so if they don’t make it we might have the same team against Chelsea.”
