Manchester United have provided some early team news with updates on several players ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash with Leicester City.
Manchester United have provided some early team news on ManUtd.com with updates on several players ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash with Leicester City.
The Reds welcome the Foxes to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon following the international break and boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a number of injury concerns to worry about.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka has made an impressive start to life at United since arriving from Crystal Palace in the summer but the right-back is in danger of missing his first game of the season after being forced to withdraw from the England squad due to a back injury.
Jesse Lingard was also denied the opportunity to represent his country during the Euro qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo after being sent home from the England camp due to illness and it remains to be seen whether the midfielder will recover in time to face Leicester.
Another major concern for Solskjaer is the fitness of Paul Pogba as United’s official website has confirmed the midfielder was forced to miss France’s Euro qualifiers against Albania and Andorra due to an ankle injury.
All three players will be assessed at United’s Carrington training base before their availability against Leicester is determined but Solskjaer will be praying for good news as it would be a big blow for him to be without the influential trio.
Luke Shaw is expected to miss the visit of Leicester this weekend as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury that he picked up against Crystal Palace last month so Ashley Young should continue at left-back.
However, ManUtd.com suggest in their update that Anthony Martial could be available again on Saturday after missing the 1-1 draw against Southampton two weeks ago with a thigh problem.
Diogo Dalot is yet to feature this season due to a groin issue and it remains to be seen whether the full-back will be available to take on Leicester but Eric Bailly and Tim Fosu-Mensah remain on the sidelines with serious knee injuries.
So Solskjaer has plenty of fitness concerns as he prepares his squad to welcome Leicester to Old Trafford on Saturday with the Red Devils desperate to get back to winning ways having picked up just two points against Wolves, Crystal Palace and Southampton.
