Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera is expected to be fit for the FA Cup quarter final with Wolves on Saturday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have been in the midst of an injury crisis in the last month, but those ailments appear to be clearing before their visit to Molineux.

Manchester United will be looking to bounce back from their first domestic defeat under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when they take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup at Molineux on Saturday evening.

After the high of their miraculous comeback against Paris Saint-Germain last week, United were brought back down to earth with a bump as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at Arsenal on Sunday.

The result leaves them playing catch-up in the top-four race once again, but for now their focus must switch to the FA Cup – a competition which provides their most realistic chance of silverware this season.

Lingard is back in training but the Manchester Evening News report that he won’t be brought back into action until after the international break.

Definitely out this weekend are Ashley Young (suspended), Alexis Sanchez (knee) and Antonio Valencia (calf).

Phil Jones hasn’t played for a month due to illness and Matteo Darmian has also been out ill of late.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said after Sunday’s game, when asked if he would prioritise competitions when it came to rotating his squad: “No, we don’t have to choose with injuries we’ve had lately.

“That’s given us a great chance to give players playing time and game-time and they’re coming back maybe for Wolves but after the international break we’ve got a full squad fit and the ones who’ve come in when the regulars have been injured have done really well, so we’ll be ready for that.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must rotate his defence on Saturday evening, with Ashley Young suspended for the Emirates FA Cup quarter-final against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

The 33-year-old full-back is set to serve a one-match ban in the competition after picking up a second yellow card of this season’s competition, in the fifth-round victory at Chelsea.
