Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has his work cut out as he hopes the medical team can do a good job before they host Leicester City in a Premier League clash on Saturday.

Solskjaer and his Manchester United players entertain Leicester City at Old Trafford and the Norwegian tactician could be without five players.

Summer signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw could all miss the Leicester City game.

Wan-Bissaka received his first international call-up to the England setup only for him to suffer a setback.

The 21-year-old right-back pulled out of the England qualifiers because of a back injury.

Jesse Lingard also pulled out of the England squad due to illness.

On his part, Luke Shaw was not considered for the England squad after he sustained a hamstring injury during the league defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace last month.

Manchester United suffered their one and only defeat this season via the 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace at home.

Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba didn’t feature for France during the international break due to various injuries.

Pogba was withdrawn from the France squad due to an ankle injury, while Martial suffered a knock during the last league game at Southampton and he’s a big doubt for the Leicester City game.
