Louis van Gaal gives injury news update, confirms Marcus Rashford could face FC Midtjylland


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has confirmed that goalkeeper David De Gea will not feature in today's game against FC Midtjylland.

The Spaniard injured his knee during the warm-up session last week and was unavailable for Monday's FA Cup game against Shrewsbury.

He is expected to be back in the starting line-up for Sunday's home game against Arsenal at Old Trafford.

"I was hoping for that [David De Gea to be fit to play] but he shall not be involved, that is already certain," van Gaal revealed.

"[Antonio] Valencia didn't train with our first squad, only individually as part of his own programme.

"[Marcos] Rojo has only trained with the second team yesterday and today with the first squad so he's on the bench but is only good for 20 minutes or something like that.

"We have to score, that's for sure. We have to disorganise their organisation so we have to be very creative.

"He [Marcus Rashford] is the option at this moment for this position [in attack]."
