Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær has confirmed five key players remain on United’s injury list ahead of Leicester City’s trip to Old Trafford on Saturday.
The international break was welcomed with the hope that it would allow those out through injury time to recover, but Solskjær has since failed to provide the update Red Devils fans were hoping for.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Solskjær confirmed Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Diogo Dalot and Luke Shaw will not feature against Leicester, whilst Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jesse Lingard are doubtful, saying: “The treatment room’s been busy and still is, so we don’t really know who’s going to be available. There’s maybe Aaron [Wan-Bissaka], maybe Jesse [Lingard], and I think maybe that’s it from the ones that pulled out of international duty, but I can’t promise those two will be available either.”
“Pogba won’t be fit, no, unless he’s had a miraculous recovery overnight from yesterday to today, or tonight to tomorrow. He’s not been ready to do 100% training. We hope more can be ready for West Ham next week, and Paul and Anthony [Martial] are in that category. I think they’ll be ready for then and can’t say more than that really.”
“Leicester is always a tough game, as a team, a club wanting to push into the top four, they’ve got good players, a good manager, a proven top manager, Brendan Rodgers’s teams always play with football and we’ve got to play well to get the three points.”
United will be looking to put the last three games behind them which saw the club only pick up two points against Wolves, Crystal Palace and Southampton. Leicester, in comparison, are currently unbeaten in the Premier League this season, despite losing Harry Maguire. The fixture kicks-off at 3:00 pm, meaning it won’t be televised for fans living in the UK.
