MANCHESTER UNITED’S injury crisis could see Amad Diallo make his Premier League debut against West Ham.
The teenager scored his first goal for the Red Devils with a stunning header during Thursday’s 1-1 draw against AC Milan in the Europa League.
Amad Diallo could make his Manchester United debut due to the club’s injury crisis
The talented winger is yet to start a game for United since he joined in a high-profile £37million move from Atalanta in January.
Amad was handed his debut in the 4-0 win against Real Sociedad last month and impressed during his 45-minute appearance yesterday.
And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be forced to turn to the 18-year-old once again with Anthony Martial a major doubt for West Ham.
Marcus Rashford was absent for the Milan game due to an ankle injury while Edinson Cavani has missed six of the club’s last seven matches.
Solskjaer said: “Anthony, he got a whack on his hip, so that’s another forward that we need to scan and have to look at.
“Definitely hope Marcus is back for next Thursday in Milan. I’m not sure if he’ll make Sunday, but fingers crossed because we will need him.
“Edinson I don’t think will be ready for Sunday, no.”
The possible absence of United’s senior front three could mean Solskjaer would be forced to start Amad and play Mason Greenwood up front.
Anthony Martial would lead the line should he recover from a hip problem
If Martial does come through a late fitness test then the Norwegian would likely rely on the Frenchman to lead the line with England starlet Greenwood on the wing.
Elsewhere, Victor Lindelof is expected to replace Eric Bailly despite the Ivorian impressing alongside Harry Maguire in the Europa League..
Luke Shaw will come in for Alex Telles while David de Gea’s continued absence will give Dean Henderson a chance to bounce back from his mistake for Milan’s equaliser.
