Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Paul Pogba and six other players are doubtful for the clash against Leicester City this weekend.

Solskjaer who needs a win to ease the pressure on him after draws with Wolves and Southampton, and a home defeat to Crystal Palace will be without Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw, Diogo Dalot and Eric Bailly as United host the Foxes at Old Trafford.

Jesse Lingard and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are also doubtful for the encounter with third-placed Leicester City

“The treatment room’s been busy and still is, so we don’t really know who’s going to be available,” said Solskajer.

“There’s maybe Aaron, maybe Jesse, and I think maybe that’s it from the ones that pulled out of international duty, but I can’t promise those two will be available either.

“Pogba won’t be fit, no, unless he’s had a miraculous recovery overnight from yesterday to today, or tonight to tomorrow. He’s not been ready to do 100 per cent training, no.

“We hope more can be ready for West Ham next week, and Paul and Anthony are in that category. I think they’ll be ready for then and can’t say more than that really.

“Leicester is always a tough game, as a team, a club wanting to push into the top four. They’ve got good players, a good manager, a proven top manager, Brendan’s teams always play with football and we’ve got to play well to get the three points.”
