Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer issued injury warning ahead of Leicester game | Football | Sport


Manchester United are in trouble against Leicester City this afternoon due to their injury list.

That’s according to ESPN pundit Ian Darke.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be without several key members of his first team for today’s game.

Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Luke Shaw, Diogo Dalot and Eric Bailly are all unavailable.

New signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka is still recovering from an injury, having been forced to withdraw from the England squad.

He was, however, seen at the Lowry Hotel on Friday, and was included in the provisional 19-man squad.

But regardless, United will be forced to include a host of youngsters in the squad, and are likely to hand starts to Mason Greenwood and Scott McTominay.

Speaking on ESPN FC, Darke explained that United don’t strike fear into their opposition anymore, and therefore Leicester can be hopeful of getting a result today.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are unbeaten so far this campaign, annd sit third behind Manchester City and Liverpool.

United, on the other hand, have won just once this season – an impressive 4-0 win over Chelsea.

Since then, they have been unable to string together any good results, and were defeated by Crystal Palace 2-1 in their most recent home game.

“They’re in a little bit of trouble, aren’t they?” Darke asked.

“They’ve got this injury list, and they haven’t won since the opening day of the season.

“There was a time when teams would go to Old Trafford and think that they were lucky to get a corner, they’d throw a party if they got as much as a point, but not anymore.

“They’ve already lost once this season to Crystal Palace, and you’d have to fancy Leicester City, who are a good team and haven’t lost so far, they’ve won their last two, and Jamie Vardy is on fire.

“This is another tough one for Manchester United the way things stand.”
