The Manchester United manager provided an update on his men’s availability before the battle against Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Edinson Cavani

will probably feature for

Manchester United

when they head to Selhurst Park on Wednesday but

Paul Pogba

is still out of action.

The 34-year-old striker was rested during Red Devils’ last two games due to a muscle injury but may return to action against

Crystal Palace


The France international, however, may take a while to play for

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

’s side, as he is dealing with a hamstring injury he suffered against Everton. Since sustaining the injury, the Frenchman has missed six matches.

Solskjaer provided an update on his men, saying:

"We've had a training session this morning, it was a light one.

"There’s a couple of doubts for tomorrow that we will have to give as much time as possible. Edinson has trained, that's good, let's hope there's no reaction after the session and hopefully he will travel to the squad."

On Pogba, he added: "

Paul is still not ready for us. He's feeling better but he's not been training with the team yet so he's definitely not travelling down to London


The Red Devils boss also commented on

Phil Jones

’ situation, as the defender did not make any appearances this season.

Solskjaer said: "

With Phil he's working really hard but he’s had a couple of setbacks and it’s that kind of injury you have to be patient with and give him time, I know all about these injuries.

"I'm not sure [how long he'll be out for], how long is a piece of rope? That's how I felt when I came back, give him absolutely every chance to get back this season, if not hopefully for the start of next season."
