Speaking on why Jadon Sancho missed the FA Cup game against Aston Villa, Ralf Rangnick said: “With Jadon [Sancho], he was supposed to be in the squad. He had some issues with hamstrings on both sides.”
He also gave injury updates on Harry Maguire and Phil Jones, saying: “He’s (Harry) still suffering a little bit from his rib contusion and again I hope to have him back for the Villa [Premier League] game on Saturday, but for tonight he was not available.
“With Phil Jones, he’s having some minor problems on the calf. Again in a cup game like the one tonight it doesn’t make any sense [to risk him] – even more so if it’s the calf muscle.”
