Ole Gunnar Solskjaer facing selection crisis with SIX Manchester United players possibly injured, but two could return for Leicester clash

Manchester United return to Premier League action this weekend with the visit of Leicester to Old Trafford, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a selection headache heading into Saturday’s fixture.

The Red Devils boss could be without SIX players for the match, which pits the third-place Foxes against a United side who have won just a single one of their four league matches so far.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard are all doubts in the run up to the game, having all returned early from international duty due to various issues.

England pair Wan-Bissaka and Lingard were withdrawn from Gareth Southgate’s squad due to a back problem and illness respectively, while Pogba, the midfielder, was sent home from the France squad with an ankle injury.

Though none of the trio are confirmed to miss Saturday’s visit of Leicester, they could possibly join Diogo Dalot, Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah on the sidelines and be ruled out at the weekend.

There is some good news for Solskjaer, however, with manutd.com reporting that Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial could return from injury in time for the Leicester fixture.

Both players missed the 1-1 draw at Southampton last time out having suffered knocks during last month’s defeat by Crystal Palace, but they may be fit this weekend.
