Manchester United risk to approach the Premier League away match against Crystal Palace on Wednesday evening without 10 first-team players.

Recall that midfielder Nemanja Matic was injured during the Red Devils’ last training session before Sunday’s match against Liverpool. United also lost Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard with injuries in the very same game.

Having quickly exhausted all of his substitutions, United’s coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was unable to replace striker Marcus Rashford, who was forced to play until the final whistle, despite problems with his ankle.

Phil Jones, Matteo Darmian, Antonio Valencia, Anthony Martial, as well as 17-year-old Mason Greenwood can join this five.

Solskjaer said that he didn’t expect much news after today’s training session. He admitted that he didn’t know exactly how large their list of losses would be, but it could walk up to 10 players. Darmian did train today but he could hardly help United in the evening’s game.
