Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged new signing Fred to take his opportunity amidst the injury crisis rocking the team at the moment.

In his pre-match thoughts ahead of the game, Solskjaer hinted that Fred could be given the chance to impress when Manchester United take on their hosts Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in Matchweek 28 clash on Wednesday night.

Manchester United are battling several injury problems and Fred could get his chance to shine against the Eagles.

The Red Devils could miss up to ten players for the game including midfielders Ander Herrera, Juan Manuel Mata and Nemanja Matic.

The absence of the aforementioned trio means that Fred is in line for his eighth start of this season’s Premier League campaign.

Brazilian international star Fred has had a disappointing spell at Old Trafford since he joined the club from Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk last summer.

At the start of this season, Manchester United won the race to sign the midfielder ahead of city rivals Manchester City in a deal worth £52m but the player has failed to live up to expectations both from fans and the club.

He has played a peripheral role at the club since Solskjaer was named the interim Manchester United manager.

Solskjaer encouraged him as he compared him to ex-Argentine international Juan Sebastian Veron who had a slow start to his career at Manchester United.

Ivan Rakitic

Manchester United manager has received a massive boost in his desire to sign former World Cup finalist Ivan Rakitic as the player is reportedly set to end his stay at Camp Nou in January.

It is believed that the Red Devils are eagerly ready to snatch the Croatian midfielder from Camp Nou in the winter as Solskjaer wants to add new faces to his midfield formation.

After falling down the pecking order due to the arrival of Frenkie de Jong from Ajax in the summer, Rakitic is now set to dump the Blaugranas and he’s said to be considering the Theatre of Dreams as his next destination.

Man United Legend Reveals One Player Who Will Certainly Perform Against Liverpool

Paul Pogba

Manchester United will play host to Liverpool on Sunday and former United player Darren Fletcher is tipping Paul Pogba to make the difference for the Old Trafford outfits during the game.

The Scottish international singled out the World Cup winner for praise as he labeled him the most influential player in Solskjaer’s young squad even if fans can’t stop criticizing him for his inconsistency since his return to the Old Trafford in 2016.

According to the Scotsman in an interview with Sky Sports, the 26-year-old playmaker has always delivered, judging by his goals and assists record for the team.

“If you look at the stats over a season – goals, assists, chances created, passes – he is Manchester United’s most dominant and influential player,” Fletcher told Sky Sports.

“Without a doubt, it is a big blow [that he has been missing], he is a leader, a World Cup winner. His performances get scrutinized to the level where it is a little bit unfair.”

He believes that the Old Trafford Faithfuls expect too much from him which is one of the reasons why he’s under-appreciated by the fans.

“People probably expect too much from him but if you look at the stats he always delivers and makes things happen.

“That’s probably where the criticism comes because he always tries things. Great Manchester United players have always done that, they’ve never gone simple or safe. Paul is maybe trying a little bit too hard.” he concluded.

Just like Fletcher had spoken, Pogba’s return will definitely be a major boost to United’s chance of beating their longtime rivals on Sunday because his creativity will be largely needed by the team.

Manchester United under-fire manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saw his team record their worst start in the club’s history when they were beaten 1-0 by Newcastle before the international break and fans are asking for the manager’s resignation letter.

Despite the huge call from the Red Devils Faithfuls on Social media, the club’s hierarchy has always shown support for the Norwegian tactician.

However, that could change anytime soon as a report, via TuttoSport, revealed that the Glazers are very close to sealing a deal with Massimiliano Allegri over the possibility of replacing Solskjaer at Old Trafford.

It is equally undetermined if Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is finally out of the race for the job despite being tagged as the ‘best man’ for the club’s managerial position by many pundits and soccer enthusiasts.

Three Reasons Why Man United Could Pull Out Of Mandzukic’s Deal Revealed

Moussa Dembele

It’s obvious that United need more firepower at the final third of the pitch and they are hugely linked with two strikers — Juventus forward Mario Mandzukic and Lyon’s Moussa Dembele.

With reports from Old Trafford, the Red Devils are closer to reaching an agreement with Juventus for the Croatian star as they have reportedly sealed a £10m deal with the Turin outfits.

But is the 33-year-old the best solution to United’s goalscoring problem? Here is our answer to the question and why we believe Solskjaer shouldn’t make Mandzukic his prime target.

Loading...

1. He’s Not Getting Younger

Judging by his age, the 33-year-old is far from being a long-term project at Old Trafford. Hence, he shouldn’t be the main target for the club. He might find it difficult to succeed at Old Trafford due to the physical nature of the League.

2. His Current Inactive Role At Juventus

Mandzukic hasn’t played a single match for both club and country this season, he will need some time to hit the ground running at Old Trafford.

What United currently need is a player who will make an impact as soon as he’s signed into the club if they must save their season.

3. Huge Salary Demand

If the report from Italy is something to lean on, the player will become United’s fourth highest paid player as he wants £200k as weekly wages. This appears too much for a 33-year-old player who appears to have past his prime.
