Man Utd trio sidelined v Arsenal; key midfielder doubtful

Date published: Friday 1st December 2017 2:36

Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Marouane Fellaini will miss Manchester United’s trip to Arsenal on Saturday due to injury.

Defenders Jones (thigh) and Bailly have each sat out the last four games, while Fellaini was absent for Tuesday’s 4-2 win at Watford.

United boss Jose Mourinho said at his press conference to preview the clash with the Gunners that none of the trio would be involved, and that Fellaini’s fellow midfielder Nemanja Matic was a doubt.

Mourinho said of the influential Matic, who came off in the second half at Vicarage Road because of what the manager has described as a muscular issue: “I hope he can (be involved), but I cannot guarantee.

“He is selected to go. Let’s see the feeling before the match, let’s see the warm-up. I hope he can. I want him to, he wants to, but I cannot guarantee.”
