Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained why Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira were left out of the squad to face Watford on Sunday afternoon.
“We’ve picked a squad of 18 that we felt it was the right 18 here,” Solskjaer told MUTV when asked about why Lingard and Pereira were missing from the squad.
“We’ve got cover on the bench for wide-men, forwards, midfielders and defenders so that was a decision I made.”
On Greenwood’s quick recovery, Solskjaer added: “Yeah, Mason stayed home, he didn’t travel to Brugge, but he feels okay today.
“Victor [Lindelof] has recovered. Eric [Bailly] played really well down at Chelsea but we need to manage him properly and then give him time to recover in between. But that’s a big plus for us having Eric back.”
