Jesse Lingard Harm Increases Manchester United woes after Alkmaar draw

The 26-year-old was a late replacement in Thursday’s struggle but limped off in additional time and although Solskjaer reported the issue wasn’t severe, Lingard could reunite just in time to get their league match against Liverpool on Oct. 20.

“I believe he sensed his hamstring just a small bit. I don’t think that it’s too bad. He likely will not be matched for Newcastle but he is prepared for Liverpool,” Solskjaer told MUTV.

Solskjaer had voiced his worries regarding the artificial surface in the Kyocera Stadium at The Hague before the game, stating that it had motivated him to depart out midfielder Paul Pogba in the group due to an ankle knock.

Substitute Marcus Rashford, who’s also struggling for fitness and form, was refused a potential penalty in the 80th minute after he had been clipped with a slumping Stijn Wuytens.

A frustrated Solskjaer stated United should also have experienced a penalty in Monday’s 1-1 league draw with Arsenal to get a clear handball by Sead Kolasinac.

“I could not believe what I saw. Much like Arsenal. You understand, the handball, as it should have been 2-0. It is frustrating for us today, not obtaining these small matters,” Solskjaer added.

“The boys deserved a lot more… it is likely to turn at the same stage, they will find these choices and then they are going to find the results that they deserve.”
