In an interview with MUTV, Louis Van Gaal has confirmed that their central midfielder has picked up an injury and will be unavailable for the next match – against Chelsea FC. On Carrick’s injury, Van Gaal has said,
Carrick is injured, he cannot play
Not only just Michael Carrick, but also there is another bad news is waiting for ManUTD fans. Besides Carrick, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Daley Blind will be unavailable as well. This is where Old Trafford has got an impulse before such a big match.
When he was asked about their injury, he blamed Vincent Kompany’s harsh tackle for Blind’s unavailability.
At the same time, Macros Jones was injured in the second half of the same match.
Although, Rojo’s injury was not disclosed during the match, yet, he has confirmed it to the Reds boss after the match. That is why Van Gaal has taken him off from this Chelsea vs Manchester United match on Saturday.
On their injury, he has said,
But not only Michael Carrick – Daley Blind, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo cannot play. It cannot be worse because it’s two players in the left central defensive positions, and Jonny Evans is still suspended. Blind and Carrick play in the holding position in midfield, so I have to change my line-up a lot against Chelsea.
They are all from the game against Manchester City. Blind has played on because he always wants to play on, but the tackle from [Vincent] Kompany was of course the reason.
Jones, I took him off the pitch already because he injured himself in the second half. Rojo, he was complaining after the match, and Carrick was also off. So it’s not surprising, but we had a big hope that Blind and Jones could reach this game but they could not.
Current Form Of Manchester United
No doubt, Manchester United is back in their form with the assistance of Mata, Rooney, Young, Fellaini and David De Gea. The last match was won by United with 4-2 from Young, Fellaini, Mata and Smalling.
On the other hand, Rooney has shown a huge difference in his playing than previous season. Although, Van Persie has been off for a long time now, but it seems, he will be back on Saturday. Last week, he tweeted about his fitness.
Also, Shaw has trained for a long time and he can also be available for this match.
Manchester United feels always safe with Michael Carrick. However, there should not be any big issue without him because of the presence of Rafael and Shaw (Not confirmed yet).
