"I don't think the manager can legislate for the amount of injuries he has had to deal with," he told the club's official website.
"We've missed [Wayne] Rooney and [Robin] van Persie for big chunks of the season. They are two of the best centre-forwards in the world and any team would miss them.
"When we finally got them both back for the game against Stoke, suddenly we had four centre-halves not fit to play.
"It's been a crazy season for injuries. Hopefully we'll get a bit of luck with injuries and I'm sure if we get all our players fit we'll get moving up the league."
