Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed that defenders Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo will not feature against Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon.
The Red Devils host the Magpies after a perfect start to their Premier League campaign with the Dutchman hinting at the possibility that midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger could be in the starting line-up.
"It's still the same," van Gaal told MUTV.
"Only [Phil] Jones is ill, but it's getting better with him. He's already running on the pitch. It's not bad.
"[Marcos] Rojo needs match fitness, yes.
"Yes, of course [Bastian Schweinsteiger is ready to start].
"It's a matter of time. Maybe it shall happen tomorrow. You never know. I think he can still do better because when you are not fit enough then it is difficult to show your highest level.
"But I think it's also a matter of time and we have seen a solution in rotating our [second] captain, Michael Carrick, with Schweinsteiger. I think it's a very good solution because we can spare them both for the big moments."
