Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has ruled out Antonio Valencia and Paddy McNair from the squad to face Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Louis van Gaal who watched his side dumped out of the Capital One Cup on penalties by Middlesbrough in mid-week also revealed the duo of Memphis Depay and James Wilson picked up injuries in the defeat.
“We’ll have to wait and see,” the boss said on the extent of the problems. Antonio Valencia and Paddy McNair remain sidelined and will miss this weekend’s game.
In his post match conference at the Aon training Complex,Van Gaal also added that his team is improving compared to their performances last season.
“Last year we had 13 points from 10 games and now we have 20 points out of 10. We are improving a lot, but it is a process.
“We were in the last 16 of the Capital One Cup and we are in the Champions League. Last year it was not like this.”
“I shall do everything for this club because these fans are unbelievable,” van Gaal pledged. “They have supported the players fantastically. In spite of the defeat [against Middlesbrough] they were applauding.”
