With three premier league games remaining, they continues to be strong interests of how Manchester united will finish the season with four points separating them from third place Chelsea,after Chelsea defeated Norwich 1-0 at Stamford bridge on Tuesday night.

Meanwhile,Manchester united are said to be preparing for next season as the club is being continuously linked with some players and they are one of few teams who will have money to spend this summer despite the corona virus outbreak which have had an impact on the finances of football clubs.

But according to reports,Manchester united manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed an injury suffered by Mason Greenwood.

The 18-year-old has been left with a swollen ankle after a strong challenge by Oriol Romeu during the draw against Southampton on Monday - which went unpunished by referee Chris Kavanagh.

Greenwood, who has scored four goals in his last four premier league outings, has managed 16 goals in a fantastic breakthrough season, making his manager even angrier about the tackle.

In an injury update before the match against Crystal palace, Solskjaer also offered updates on the fitness of Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams.

"I'll give Luke Shaw as much time as possible - him and Mason, their ankles are swollen and a bit blown up," Solskjaer told MUTV.

“I’ll give them as much recovery time as possible to give them a chance. Brandon Williams should be fine, he has a gash over the eye but if he can see out of it then...

“We've not trained obviously this morning yet but we'll hopefully have two, maybe all three of them."

Solskjaer went on to suggest that added that referee Kavanagh should have taken action over the challenge on his young prospect, as well as questioning the VAR.

He said: "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."

Former United defender Gary Neville said of the tackle during commentary on Sky Sports that the former Chelsea midfielder was “trying to do him".

He said: "I do not like that. I think that’s a bad one. The ball’s gone, he’s tried to do him.

"I think he’s lucky there, Romeu. The ball’s gone, they can be leg breakers those ones."
