Solskjaer Handed Selection Headache As Two Key Players Are Ruled Out Of Leicester Clash



The absence of Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial has handled Solskjaer a selection headache for Manchester United’s home game with Leicester.

Naija News understands that Paul Pogba (France), Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jesse Lingard (both England) were all forced to withdraw from national-team duty due to injury or illness, while Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial missed our last Premier League fixture, away to Southampton.

Speaking on the selection of players Solskjaer said; “I can’t promise any of them will be on the pitch but we’ll try to get one or two more on the bench,” Ole told MUTV.

Let’s see when we get to the game. Maybe next weekend [at West Ham United], we’ll have more of them back. That’s how it is in football and why we have loads of quality and numbers and we’re fine.”

In his press conference, the boss elaborated and explained that Pogba and Martial look certain to be out of the Leicester clash but could return for the West Ham trip. Wan-Bissaka and Lingard are battling to be available for Saturday.
