EPL: Solskjaer drops Fred from Man United squad to face West Ham as punishment, Rashford doubtful

ENGLAND – Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has left Fred out of his squad for Saturday’s Premier League clash at West Ham.

Solskjaer is however hoping for good news over Marcus Rashford’s fitness.

United travelled to London on Friday evening without Fred, who has been left out after his misdeeds against Paris Saint-Germain in midweek.

Fred was shown a red card as the Red Devils suffered a 3-1 defeat at Old Trafford.

That setback has left their hopes of Champions League progress in the balance. They must now avoid defeat at RB Leipzig to reach the knockout stages.

With Fred unavailable in that clash in Germany, he was expected to be a shoo-in for the game against the Hammers.

However, according to the MEN, Solskjaer has taken the decision to leave Fred out of his squad in response to the red card.

United are also sweating over the fitness of Rashford. He has been struggling with a shoulder problem and was forced off against PSG.
