Man Utd injury news: The 8 players Solskjaer is sweating on after international duty | Football | Sport


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is sweating on a number of star players following the latest international break.

United face Leicester on Saturday afternoon as they look to improve their poor start to the season.

Soslkjaer’s side have just one win from four games, with two draws and a defeat seeing them in eighth place – already seven points behind league leaders Liverpool.

And things could get worse for the Norwegian as they take on in-form Leicester at Old Trafford.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are third after two wins and two draws and look impressive despite the sale of Harry Maguire to United.

The former Celtic boss has got Foxes fans believing they could get back in the Champions League slots this season and with Jamie Vardy on fire – with six goals already – and James Maddison impressing.

And some are predicting them to give United a rough ride this weekend.

United could be without up to eight players this weekend after the likes of Paul Pogba and Aaron Wan-Bissaka were forced to withdraw from international duty.

The eight doubts for United are:

Eric Bailly (Knee) – 14 weeks

Luke Shaw (Thigh) – 3 weeks

Diogo Dalot (Hip) – few days

Anthony Martial (Thigh) – few days

Paul Pogba (Ankle) – few days

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (Back) – few days

Jesse Lingard (Illness) – few days

Timothy Fosu-Mensah (Knee) – unknown

And United’s title chances have already been written off by former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

“When you see Man Utd, they are one of the examples where there is a potential there,” he told beIN Sports. “But they have not found a collective way.

“Maybe these players are not mature enough to carry the team play of a team like Man United, altogether. That is the question mark now.

“You feel there is something coming out but it’s not ready. When you watch them play, they are not a candidate to fight for the championship.

“Will they emulate what (Ryan) Giggs, (Paul) Scholes, (David) Beckham did over a number of years? Personally, I’m not convinced.”
