Will De Gea start against West Ham on Sunday? Solskjaer offers update on the Man Utd goalkeeper


  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted David De Gea is ‘touch and go’ for Manchester United’s Sunday’s clash with West Ham
  • The 30-year-old Spain international has missed his side’s last two games to be with his wife for the birth of their first child in Spain
  • Dean Henderson has deputized in De Gea’s absence but made a major mistake during his side’s 1-1 Europa League draw with AC Milan on Thursday

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted David De Gea is ‘touch and go’ for Manchester United’s Sunday’s clash with top-four aspirants West Ham, per TalkSport.

The 30-year-old Spain goalkeeper missed his side’s last weekend’s victory in the Manchester derby as well as their 1-1 draw with AC Milan in Europa League on Thursday. He was also absent from their 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace last Wednesday.

De Gea missed all these games as he was allowed by United to fly to Spain to be with his wife for the birth of their first child earlier this week.

The Spain international has since returned to England but is still a doubt for United’s clash with West Ham due to coronavirus regulations in England.

 

Solskjaer offers update on De Gea

Asked about the Spaniard’s availability, Solskjaer replied: Yeah, David is back in Manchester. He is quarantining or self-isolating.

“He’s just touch and go for Sunday, I think. I can’t really know when he came back, so I’m not really sure if it was Monday or Tuesday that he arrived back in Manchester.”

 

Man Utd injury news ahead of West Ham clash

Apart from De Gea who remains a doubt for this clash, Anthony Martial might also watch his side’s Sunday’s clash with the Hammers from the sidelines.

The France international was part of United’s starting XI on Thursday but had to go off at half-time after complaining of a hip injury sustained during the first 45 minutes.

He will be joined on the sidelines by Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek and Juan Mata, with Solskjaer admitting that summer-signing Cavani won’t be ready for Sunday.
