Louis van Gaal: Injury update on De Gea, Martial and Marcos Rojo ahead of Arsenal game


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says goalkeeper David De Gea is expected to start today's game against Arsenal.

The Spaniard missed the last two games for the club but is expected to recover in time to face Arsene Wenger's men in today's big game at Old Trafford.

Defender Chris Smalling will be assessed before the game with Argentina's Marcos Rojo expected to start on the bench.

"I expect [David De Gea can return] because I saw the way he was today," van Gaal explained.

"Chris [Smalling] is a question mark, but you never know.

"I don't [about Anthony Martial] know because it has happened before the match. I've talked with him. I have talked with the physiotherapist that already had control of him. I cannot say, but it is not as heavy as everybody thinks, but you never know.

"I'm very happy with Marcos [Rojo] that he played 10 or 15 minutes and how he showed already his form and shape, he was very good.

"But I have to build him up in the games and that's not so easy, because he only had two training sessions with me. On the first day, he was with the second team and, on the second day, he was with us.

"So I take also a risk to do that, but I think that I have to do that now with 15 minutes and then 30 minutes and like that and I hope we can build him up.

"[Antonio] Valencia is also coming back and [Marouane] Fellaini too - in the month of March, a lot of players are coming back and then we have a strong selection again."
