Injury scare for Cresswell

Filed: Friday, 11th August 2017
By: Staff Writer

Aaron Cresswell has been passed fit to face Manchester United this weekend - despite missing several training sessions this week.

The England international had been given the green late to feature in Sunday's 2017/18 season opener at Old Trafford despite sustaining the injury, according to new Chief Medic Gary Lewin.

"Aaron has missed a few daysí training with a slight knock but is going to train on Friday and will be available for the weekend," he told whufc.com.

However the news is not quite so good for no less than SIX of Cresswell's team mates - as Lewin explained:

Andy Carroll: "Has stepped up his rehab recently and we are hoping to have him back in full training in the near future. We are looking at days not weeks with Andy, in terms of being back on the training pitch. We have to remember that he has been out for four months."

Cheikhou Kouyate: "He is now working very hard out on the pitches and is close to joining in full training, as is..."

Manuel Lanzini: "... and we hope that both will be available again before the international break"

Diafra Sakho: "Diafra has now had a full week of training and we can now start to look at getting him some match time. He probably needs a bit more training, because he hasnít had a complete pre-season, but itís looking good and he is making excellent progress."

Winston Reid: "Played in the Under 23 match at Tottenham last weekend and came through it fine."

Michail Antonio: "He has trained all week with the first team and is going to play at Dagenham for the Under 23s against Everton. All being well, he will train fully again next week and be available to Slaven for selection."
