Louis van Gaal: Phil Jones is Manchester United’s only injured player

by Ben Topliss

Louis van Gaal has confirmed Phil Jones is Manchester United’s only injured player ahead of the Champions League playoff tie against Club Brugge on Tuesday.

Jones is suffering from mild thrombosis and is expected to be sidelined for at least a few more weeks.

Meanwhile, van Gaal revealed that Marouane Fellaini could feature in the tie.

The Belgian has not featured for Man United so far this season due to suspension.

United are strong favourites for the clash and will be confident of securing a victory, particularly with a near fully-fit squad available.

Brugge, meanwhile, are going through something of an injury crisis, with 10 players receiving treatment.

The loss of Lior Refaelov and Jose Izquierdo will be particularly felt. The former registered 18 goals last season while Izquierdo grabbed 13 league goals last term.
