For this Sunday’s league game, Eric Bailly is unavailable and he will miss the rest of the season along with the Africa Cup of Nations after he suffered a knee injury in last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

Marcus Rashford has trained this week since he picked up a shoulder injury. As for Mason Greenwood the 17-year-old is unavailable for this weekend. Although he may be fit for the visit of Cardiff City on the final day.

It was suggested by Ole that Sergio Romero tweaked his knee during the week.

“Eric [Bailly] has probably been the one smiling the most out of all of us because you fear the worst,” Ole told MUTV, in response to the centre-back’s knee injury last time out. “You fear the cruciate. You’re always worried that it might be nine or 12 months out, but we think he’ll be back for pre-season, so that’s positive. 

”There are a few little niggles, so let’s count the numbers on Sunday morning, I reckon. Mason [Greenwood] started off this week training but then he’s out injured again, unfortunately.

“We were looking at bringing him into the squad for the last two games – maybe he’ll make the last one [against Cardiff].” 

Romelu Lukaku may be dealing with an injury, but he hopes to play against the Terriers.

Youth team players Lee O’Connor, James Garner, Angel Gomes and Tahith Chong trained with the first team this week along with Antonio Valencia.

The home side Huddersfield may be without Ben Hamer, midfielder Aaron Mooy and striker Laurent Depoitre.

The Huddersfield and the Cardiff City games are must win games for us to gain that 4th spot. I don’t see why we shouldn’t win against these teams. The Terriers are already relegated and have nothing to play for than pride in front of their home fans. All we have to do is play with urgency and put the home team under pressure from the start and try to get that early goal or two. As long as we’re organized and defensively solid and don’t take them for granted we should win this game.

The game will be at 9 am Eastern time this Sunday on the NBC Sports Network in the US.
