Solskjaer handed double injury boost ahead of Chelsea clashManchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been handed two injury boosts of Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay ahead of Premier League clash with Chelsea after winter break.

The duo has been out for a number of weeks now, and even though they are not expected to feature when Red Devils travel to Stamford Bridge on February 17th, it’s a major boost for the Norwegian boss.

Solskjaer said via Daily Star: “They’ll have a week or so off and we’ve got more days [rest] because we’re playing Chelsea on Monday,”

“So we’ll get together on Saturday and we’ll have a good camp, working on different things.

“Of course, we’ve got a few new players, hopefully, we can integrate them into the squad.

“[The players] have been fantastic. We’ve had to, with all the injuries we’ve had, rely on many of these to maybe play more games than they should, and they’ve been brilliant.

“Yes, we’ve had ups and downs, but it shows that we do miss the injured players so, yeah, it’ll be a nice break and I think it’s about time we had that in England.
“I think all teams will get their energy levels back.”
Fernandes & Odion Ighalo are expected to feature against Frank Lampard’s side who Red Devils with six points as Solskjaer men will be eager to close the gap that could offer them some security ahead of a busy schedule.
