When asked to provide team news in his pre-match press conference, Ralf Rangnick told reporters: “We once again, unfortunately, have quite a few players missing and another couple of players with question marks so we have to wait for tomorrow’s last training session.
“As it stands now, there will be quite a few players missing, but I am still positive there will be a strong starting line-up and finish the season on a higher note than we did at Brighton.
“There are a few players missing but I don’t want to name all those names right now. A few are still question marks, Luke Shaw’s wife gave birth to their second baby today and he was supposed to be back for training tomorrow but apparently, he isn’t, so we will have to see if he is at least able to go on the bench on Sunday.
“In today’s training, we had one or two players leaving the session a little early because they couldn’t finish the session because they had problems, that was Jadon [Sancho] and Phil Jones, so we need to wait until after the session tomorrow.”
The interim Manchester United boss, who will oversee his final game on Sunday, continued: “Unfortunately, Alejandro [Garnacho] was ill in the last couple of days.
“He was training with us until midweek last week but then he had to drop out because he was ill and I think today was the first training session he was back again.
“He might be in the squad but I am not sure if he is physically, after this illness, capable and fit enough to play.”
The Manchester Evening News further adds that Paul Pogba has not trained all week because of a calf injury he picked up against Liverpool.
United face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on May 22, with Erik ten Hag set to watch the game from the stands.
This fixture also marks the end of Rangnick’s tenure as interim boss following which he will take up the Austria job.
