Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an injury update on one of his players.

Solskjaer talked about David De Gea during his pre-match press conference ahead of the blockbuster Premier League meeting with rivals Liverpool.

The Manchester United boss is no stranger to the rivalry between his club and Premier League leaders Liverpool and the said rivalry will be rekindled this weekend when the two teams meet at the Theatre of Dreams on Sunday evening.

Ahead of the game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave an injury update on his team especially on David De Gea who suffered an injury during the just concluded international break while he was playing for his country.

De Gea suffered a groin injury while he was on international duty with the Spanish national team.

He went off injured during the game between Spain and Sweden in Solna.

The Euro 2020 qualifier between Sweden and Spain ended in a 1-1 draw as the former champions booked their place at the tournament proper.

On the injury to De Gea, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that the injury is not bad as first feared before adding that the Spanish international shot stopper is unlikely to be fit for the weekend’s game at home to Liverpool.
