Reece Oxford won’t be involved in tomorrow’s crucial FA Cup clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
ClaretandHugh understands that the teenager has been left out of the squad but that Winston Reid, along with Joey O’Brien and Victor Moses have both made the journey north.
However, the question mark over Winston’s involvement remains as he has only just rejoined training and Slav has the dilemma of deciding whether to risk him or perhaps draft Cheik Kouyate into the back four and play Pedro Obiang in midfield.
Another awesome possibility is that Michail Antonio will continue in the right back role behind Moses a scenario which could cause massive problems down the right side for United.
The manager’s final decision will be whether to start Diafra Sakho or go with Andy Carroll in from of Manu Lanzini and Dimitri Payet.
Possible team: Randolph, Antonio, Reid, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Noble, Kouyate Moses; Lanzini, Payet, Sakho.
