Louis van Gaal gives latest injury update ahead of FA Cup semi-final against Everton


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says he has an almost fully-fit squad to choose from for today's FA Cup semi-final against Everton.

The Red Devils will try to reach their first FA Cup final since 2007 but they also have a Top Four finish to focus on.

They host leaders Leicester City on May 1 before tricky away games at Norwich City and West Ham United.

"The squad is nearly fit," van Gaal explained.

"Only [Luke] Shaw and [Bastian] Schweinsteiger are unable to play and maybe [Adnan] Januzaj because he didn't play yet in the second team. But we have a full squad of fit players.

"[Wayne Rooney's good form?] Of course but that counts for every player I think. Not only Wayne.

"The media and now you are talking about Wayne but we have a squad of 27 players and I am happy with everybody.

"[The Everton game?] Every player wants to play in a semi-final.

"I have to select 18 players and I have now 24 players fit so I have to disappoint six players and that is not fine for a manager."
