Manchester United early team news and injury update ahead of Bournemouth clash

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given an early team news ahead of their Saturday tie with AFC Bournemouth.

The Norwegian in his Friday presser admitted that he will have to access some of his players even though he would like to name an unchanged team for the tie.

When asked about his team selection, the Norwegian said: "I've got to wait and see. There are a couple that got some knocks and bruises, if there are a couple of changes don't be surprised just because of fitness. But there are also so many games. I've got to look after the players.

"It would be nice to play a team that performed so well against Sheffield United at Old Trafford last time and played so well against Brighton, but let's wait and see how everyone is after training, I've not seen them yet this morning.

"I've got many many reasons to play the same team but I've also got a few reasons to rotate one or two that played so well earlier in the season."

United have won their last two Premier League games 3-0 against Sheffield United and Brighton and if Solskjaer names an unchanged line-up for the third league game running it will be the first time United have done so since October and November 2006.

Struggling Bournemouth who is placed second from bottom beat United in November in one of just seven league wins Eddie Howe's side have enjoyed this season.
