Louis van Gaal: Injury update on Matteo Darmian, Michael Carrick and Bastian Schweinsteiger


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says midfielder Michael Carrick could be in the squad to face Derby County tonight in the FA Cup.

The Englishman last played for the Red Devils on January 2 against Swansea City.

Defender Matteo Darmian is ruled out as he joins Bastian Schweinsteiger, Phil Jones and other key players on the sidelines.

"It's [the injury situation is] more or less the same," van Gaal told MUTV.

"Darmian is now out and maybe Michael Carrick shall come in but of course he's not able to play 90 minutes. But it's very good he is coming back. With Darmian, it is very positive actually. It's not too severe but he's not able to play against Derby.

"I cannot say [if Bastian Schweinsteiger and Phil Jones are close] because every time I make a remark about injuries it is always difficult because injuries have developments and you have to wait and see.

"Also they have to train and be adapted to the rhythm of the Premier League which is high. When you are more weeks injured it takes more time to adapt to that rhythm."
