Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal will have to reshuffle his defence for Saturday's game at ChelseaRead the full story ›
Manchester United's Michael Carrick, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Daley Blind will miss Saturday's Premier League clash against leaders Chelsea because of injury, manager Louis van Gaal said on Friday.
"It is the worst scenario," Van Gaal told a news conference.
"Marcos and Phil can both play left central defender and Jonny Evans is also suspended so I do not have many choices.
"Daley Blind and Michael Carrick could play as a holding midfield player and I do not have another option. It is a puzzle."
With Jonny Evans still suspended, that leaves the United manager with Chris Smalling, Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett as the only available centre-halves.
Van Gaal is considering dropping Wayne Rooney back into defensive midfield even though the United skipper has been in good form since he moved up front following a mixed spell in midfield.
Van Gaal added: "I don't have another option or I have to play Wayne Rooney again in that position."

Former Man United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar is convinced Louis van Gaal will bring the glory days back to Old Trafford.
United head to Chelsea on Saturday in top form, having won six successive matches.
Van der Sar admits the title is probably beyond United's grasp this season, but when asked whether the Red Devils could challenge for the championship next year, the former goalkeeper said:
With a little bit of luck, they could have done that this season but for Chelsea winning a lot of those games with late goals - but let's hope so.
Believing in the philosophy of Louis, at the start of the new season, I think he can bring the club back to the place where it belongs.
It's been a good turnaround for the club and, if they can hold on to that third place, it's a great position to then maybe strengthen in a couple of areas of the team.

Man United will take on Barcelona, Chelsea, Porto, PSG, LA Galaxy, New York Red Bulls, San Jose Earthquakes and Club America in this year's International Champions Cup.
United won the pre-season tournament last season when their glitzy clash with Champions League winners Real Madrid attracted a crowd of nearly 110,000 fans in Michigan.
The Red Devils eventually defeated arch rivals Liverpool in the final, but Brendan Rodgers' side will not be taking part in this year's event which is scheduled for late July and early August 2015.
