Louis van Gaal: Injury update on Michael Carrick, Antonio Valencia and Ander Herrera


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says midfielder Michael Carrick will not feature in tonight's Champions League game against Wolfsburg.

The Englishman started last weekend's Premier League home game against Sunderland but will be rested ahead of Sunday's key clash at the Emirates.

Antonio Valencia and Ander Herrera will be assessed this morning.

"I think Michael Carrick shall not play tomorrow [Wednesday]," van Gaal said.

"The other two [Herrera and Valencia] we have to wait and see. They have minor injuries so I don't want to take any risks.

"Like we have done with Wayne Rooney, we will do the same for Michael Carrick or Ander Herrera. It's the same because we have to play a full season and it's better to withdraw players for one match than they play and get injured."
