ENGLAND – Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said he is hopeful goalkeeper David de Gea, will be fit for their Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain in midweek.
De Gea was injured during the first half, as he tried to save James Ward-Prowse’s free-kick, which eventually crept in to make it 2-0.
The Spaniard failed to reappear for the second half and was replaced by Dean Henderson.
“Let’s have a little check on him [De Gea]. Hopefully, he can be okay for Wednesday [against PSG] but I’m not sure. Dean [Henderson] played well though,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
The Norwegian went on to praise Henderson’s performance in the second half.
“He’s [Henderson] a keeper who has been used to being vocal. He wants to organise the team. He had a couple of tidy saves to make. He was safe with his hands. After the first half, we played well again,” Solskjaer added.
On the comeback win, which saw Edinson Cavani net two late goals in the second half, he said: “It’s one of those that when you win, they don’t really matter.
“At the end I was so proud at 2-2 because we did so well.”
