Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that the club has three injuries following their Saturday win over Everton.
United came from a goal down to record a 3-1 win at Goodison Park but left with three injury concerns in what Solskjaer pinned on the fixture congestion.
Asked if there were any injury concerns after the game, Solskjaer said: “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.”
The Norwegian further expressed his dissatisfaction in his team’s lunchtime kick-off after playing in Russia on Wednesday night.
“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, Fred, Victor didn't play, Juan didn't play the full game in Turkey. You could see they've got legs but the others were down on their knees,” a fuming Solskjaer said.

"It's an absolute shambles. The boys deserve better."
