Solskjaer Rules Juan Mata Out of Chelsea vs Man United Game

 

Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has confirmed that midfielder, Juan Mata, will miss the Red Devils’ Premier League clash with Chelsea on Sunday evening.

According to Solskjaer, Mata, a former Chelsea star, will be out of action for a couple of weeks as the Spaniard aims to recover from injury.

Speaking during his pre-match press conference on Friday, Solskjaer said, “Juan will, unfortunately, be out for a couple of weeks, so he missed tonight, [Chelsea clash].”

Man United head to the game after qualifying for the Europa League last-16 with a 4-0 aggregate win against Real Sociedad.

They are currently in the second position on the English Premier League table with 10 points behind leaders Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

The kick-off time for the Chelsea vs Man United match is 5:30 pm.

Recall that Mata missed Man United’s Europa League last-32 second-leg 0-0 draw against Real Sociedad on Thursday night.

Solskjaer’s side will now face AC Milan in the Europa League round of 16 next month.
