Louis van Gaal: Latest injury update ahead of today's game and the FA Cup Final


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says attacking midfielder Adnan Januzaj and full-back Matteo Darmian will miss today's game at home against Bournemouth but could play in next week's FA Cup Final.

The Red Devils desperately need all three points if they are to keep their Top Four finish hopes alive but they will also be aware that Manchester City only need a draw to secure fourth place.

England's Luke Shaw is ruled out of today's game and also of next week's final against Crystal Palace.

"Ashley [Young] is coming in, so he is restored of his injury. But it is one training session [yesterday]," Louis van Gaal told MUTV.

"Unfortunately [Adnan] Januzaj has been injured in the training session, so he is out for Sunday. We have to wait and see for the final. The rest is like it was. [Matteo] Darmian is still out but can be in. It is dependable on the progress. [Bastian] Schweinsteiger is out and [Luke] Shaw is out.

"They [Adnan Januzaj and Matteo Darmian] can possibly be back [for the FA Cup Final.

"[For a Top Four finish] we are now dependent on Manchester City and that is the difference.

"That is also frustrating because we had the chance, with two games to go, to keep that advantage. We were 2-1 ahead [at West Ham] with 15 minutes to play and we gave it away. That is frustrating as now we are dependable. It is still possible, so we fight for it until the end."
