Man Utd and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be without the services of Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba for the weekend game against Leicester City.
Paul Pogba, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jesse Lingard were all forced to withdraw from national-team duty through Injury. With Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw missing in action since the game, away to Southampton.
Ahead of an important fixture against Leicester City in the weekend. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial are yet to return to full fitness, but could be in contention for next week’s game against WestHam.
“I can’t promise any of them will be on the pitch but we’ll try to get one or two more on the bench,” Ole told MUTV.
“Let’s see when we get to the game. Maybe next weekend [at West Ham United], we’ll have more of them back. That’s how it is in football and why we have loads of quality and numbers and we’re fine.”
Solskjaer is however hopeful, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jesse Lingard could make it in time to feature for Man Utd against Leicester City.
“Well, the treatment room has been busy and still is,” he added. “We don’t really know who is going to be available. Maybe Aaron, maybe Jesse and I think maybe that’s it from the ones that had to pull out [of the internationals], 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 maybe from tonight to tomorrow. He’s not been ready to do 100 per cent training, no. We hope, as I’ve said, that more can be ready for West Ham next week and Paul and Anthony are in that category. I think they’ll be ready for then and I can’t say more than that really.
“Leicester is always a tough game. There’s a team, a club wanting to push into the top four I’m sure. They’ve got good players, a very good manager that’s a proven top manager. Brendan’s teams always play good football and we know we’ve got to play well to deserve the three points.”
Solskjaer would however be hoping Daniel James keeps up the good form, as he looks to secure his second win of the season, since Man Utd’s 4-0 demolition of Chelsea on opening day.
