EPL: Solskjaer Facing Selection Dilemma In Midfield Ahead Of Sheffield United Clash

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is potentially facing a selection dilemma in midfield ahead of the Premier League meeting with newcomers Sheffield United this weekend.

Solskjaer gave the injury update on his team ahead of the Sheffield United game during his latest pre-match press conference on Friday morning.

He has few players to work with especially in central midfield ahead of the game scheduled to take place at Bramall Lane on Sunday evening.

French World Cup winner Paul Pogba is already an absentee for the game as he continues his rehabilitation from an ankle problem.

The Manchester Derby league clash at the Etihad Stadium on December 7 is being targeted as the potential return date for Paul Pogba.

The French midfielder has been joined on the sidelines by central midfield partner Scott McTominay who suffered an ankle injury during the last league game at home to Brighton and Hove Albion.

Scott McTominay performed impressively during the game which ended in a 3-1 and the ankle injury sustained forced him to miss the international break.

He is expected to return to action at the start of next month meaning that he’ll miss the league games against Sheffield United and Aston Villa as well as the Europa League game at Astana FC of Kazakhstan.

The injury to Scott McTominay leaves Brazilian international Fred as the only fit central midfielder in the Manchester United squad.

Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic is back in training but he’s not fully fit.
