Manchester United could be without SEVEN first-team players against Leicester

Injury-hit Manchester United could be without seven first-team players against Leicester, with the most notable players being ruled out by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba.


This has made returning to winning ways against a resilient Brendan Rodgers side an even tougher task than before, as an extremely long injury list could hamper the afternoon for the Red Devils even more.


Whilst Diogo Dalot, Eric Bailly and Luke Shaw all remain sidelined, Martial will be protected from further injury in order to be ready for the next game as he nurses a thigh issue, whilst Pogba is yet to recover from an ankle injury he picked up right before the international break.


Apart from those, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jesse Lingard have also become doubts for the match, with the right-back having a back issue that forced him to withdraw from the England squad, whilst Lingard is currently ill.


Speaking on the matter, Solskjaer said "we don't really know who is going to be available."


He then added that "There's maybe Aaron, maybe Jesse and I think maybe that's it from the ones that had to pull out, but I can't promise those two will be available either."


When speaking on Leicester as a team, Solskjaer said that it "is always a tough game as a team, a club wanting to push into the top four. They've got good players, a very good manager, a proven top manager."
