Mason Greenwood’s availability for Manchester United’s trip to Crystal Palace on Thursday night is in doubt with the teenager suffering from a swollen ankle, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed.
The 18-year-old striker was injured by Oriol Romeu’s late challenge during the first half of United’s 2-2 draw with Southampton on Monday night.
Greenwood played on after the tackle, which went unpunished by both referee Chris Kavanagh and Lee Mason, the match’s VAR. The youngster was eventually replaced in by Daniel James in the 84th minute.
Solskjaer said both Greenwood and Luke Shaw had suffered ankle injuries in United’s last outing, though Brandon Williams – who went off with a head injury – should be available to play at Selhurst Park.
“I’ll give Luke as much time as possible – him and Mason, their ankles are swollen and a bit blown up,” the United manager told MUTV.
On Greenwood, Solskjaer added: “In the heat of the moment he’ll play on and adrenaline gets you going, and then you get a little bit of reaction after.
“I said after the game that my ankles were a bit weak after many years of football. But obviously Mason carried on and I think it should have been looked upon by the referee definitely.”
