With the Premier League set to make a comeback this weekend after a long international break and one of the biggest match of game week, 9 is Manchester United hosting League leaders Liverpool at the Old Trafford on Sunday.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been handed a huge blow as he confirms three key players who are unlikely to feature in the game for three points this weekend.
Since the beginning of the season, the Old Trafford outfit has been dealing with several injuries with key players being the ones sidelined, which has had a bad effect on the 2019/20 campaign.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of their Premier League clash against Liverpool, Solskjaer claims that Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard are yet to recover from the injuries they succumbed to, and are not available for selection.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “No chance [of Pogba or Lingard being fit]. Paul had an injury, he came back, he worked really hard. He came back and played a couple of games, maybe played through the pain barrier,” he told Sky Sports.
He also confirmed prolific goalkeeper David De Gea to be out of contention too after picking up a groin injury while on international duty for Spain during the week.
Things seem to only be getting worse for Manchester United with the injuries, which has made them have their worst ever start to a league campaign. The club sits at the 12th position on the table with nine points in eight games.
