Man Utd Team News & Injury Update: Young, Carrick, Jones & More…
Ahead of the game, manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been speaking at his weekly press conference at Carrington and has given a team news and injury update to ManUtd.com with the latest on Ashley Young, Phil Jones, Javier Hernandez and Michael Carrick.
The good news is that all of the United players appear to have come back injury-free from their international excursions during the week. The only player yet to return is Javier Hernandez who took part in Mexico’s 0-0 draw with Jamaica on Wednesday but Fergie confirmed he’s heard no news of any injury problems for the striker.
Winger Young is back in contention after recovering from a knee injury that has kept him out in recent weeks and Carrick should be available despite pulling out of the England squad to face Brazil on Wednesday. Ferguson has also played down fears over defender Jones, who contracted shingles earlier in the month, but expressed his disappointment that the condition was made public by England under-21 boss Stewart Pearce.
Here’s what Fergie told the club’s official website:
“So far everyone has come back fit from their excursions into the rest of the world,”
“The only one we’re waiting on is Chicharito. I’ve not had anything back that says he’s not fit so I expect everyone to be fit from their games.
“On our own front, Ashley Young is fit again, Michael Carrick should be okay and Phil Jones will hopefully be okay, irrespective of Stuart Pearce coming out and declaring he had shingles – which we thought was doctor confidence. We’re disappointed in that, but it’s not anything serious for the boy. It’s a mild condition that has surfaced but he should be okay.”
