Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Provides Man Utd Injury Update Ahead Of Norwich Clash

Manchester United could be without up to six players for their trip to Norwich in the Premier League on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer declared on Wednesday that Paul Pogba is set to miss the game as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.

But an update on United’s website  named the Frenchman as one of several players doubtful for the game with late updates expected on their fitness.

Late decisions are also set to be made on Axel Tuanzebe, Luke Shaw and Nemanja Matic, whilst Diogo Dalot and Eric Bailly remain sidelined.

Speaking about the four doubts in his squad, Solskjaer refused to put a deadline on their return to fitness but did not appear to indicate any are likely to feature at Carrow Road.

“We’re working very hard to get them fit and, hopefully, we can get them back soon,” Solskjaer said.

“I’m not going to put a deadline on it but it won’t be long, hopefully.”

David de Gea is expected to be fit to start in goal after missing Thursday’s trip to Serbia.

Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard also returned to the starting line-up in the game, with Solskjaer hoping for an upturn in their creativity in attack.

“We’ve not created as many as we’d have liked and not scored as many as we’d have liked,” he added.

“Now Anthony is back, he got a goal, and I’m sure we’ll see us improve as a team with Anthony in the side. He does gives us something different.”

The Red Devils ended a run of 11 straight away games without a win in all competitions on Thursday night.

Their 1-0 win over Partizan Belgrade was their first since beating Paris Saint-Germain in March – and they are now looking to repeat the trick in the Premier League.
