With an inspiring win at Goodison Park, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces trouble following several injuries to Manchester United players.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be worried as injuries took a toll on Manchester United in their ravishing victory vs Everton on Saturday. In a highly-entertaining Premier League fixture at Goodison Park, the Red Devils now have suffered from a setback. Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, and Victor Lindelof all have picked up knocks. And Solskjaer will hope that the issues are not serious ahead of a two-week international break.

Rashford was called-up by the England national team, however, now he will have to deal with a shoulder injury. The 23-year-old, though, managed to play the entire game against the Toffees along with Lindelof. But, Shaw did not continue and left the pitch 23 minutes before full-time and replaced Axel Tuanzebe.

Several issues.

Solsjaer, furthermore, awaits an update from the medical staff. The Norwegian tactician talked about the injuries to MUTV right after the game.

“Yes. Victor’s back, Marcus’s shoulder, Luke Shaw’s hamstring. That’s three I can remember from the top of my head.

“I hope everyone else is okay. David didn’t play [in midweek] but he had a groin problem before the game.”

He added on the scheduling of a visit to Merseyside: “Give us another 24 hours or 26, 28 hours to recover and you’ll get a better game from us.

“The first half was top. Get on the ball, play and the goals we scored were fantastic. 

“In the second half they went into survival mode because they’re tired, they’re on their knees but fair play to them.

“You could see, of course, Scott [McTominay], Fred, Victor didn’t play [on Wednesday], Juan [Mata] didn’t play the full game in Turkey. You could see they’ve got legs but the others were down on their knees.”
