DT announced that the Colombian has not recovered from the injury and will not be in the game. The midfielder has a calf problem that did not allow him to train normally and for which he has already missed the games against Chelsea and Leicester. .

“James is not there yet. It’s too early to put him in danger, it works,” DT told a news conference on Friday.

“James went out for three games because we have games every three days, the problem is not big. It’s a small problem in the calf, he recovers. Nothing special.”, assured DT, who is confident that he will be able to count on the wheel in Wednesday’s Cup match Manchester United.
