Louis van Gaal provides an injury update ahead of Monday’s trip to Preston…

Louis van Gaal is waiting on the fitness of
Phil Jones, Daley Blind and Robin van Persie
ahead of Manchester United’s FA Cup clash
with Preston North End on Monday, while
Michael Carrick has suffered a minor
setback.
Jones limped off in the fifth minute of the
Reds’ 3-1 win over Burnley on Wednesday with a
knee problem, while Blind was also forced off
before the break after sustaining a knock to the
head.
Asked by MUTV how Jones and Blind were
recovering, van Gaal replied: “I don’t know. We
have to wait and see. I don’t think it’s a heavy
injury for Jones.
“With Blind, I say what the doctor has said –
we’ll wait and see. I think he shall play on
Monday – that’s my expectation, but you never
know.”
On Carrick, who has missed the last four games
with a calf injury, the boss added: “He has a
fallback [setback], and that’s not unusual with
injuries, so we will also have to wait and see.”
Van Gaal then confirmed to reporters at his
press conference that van Persie, who
completed the full 90 minutes and scored
against the Clarets, had picked up a knock.
