Ole confirms double injury blow

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that both Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial are expected to miss the Premier League clash against Leicester City with respective injuries.

Pogba sustained an ankle problem during the away game at Southampton before the international break and he was thereafter excluded from the national team duties with France.

On the other hand, Martial picked up a thigh injury against Crystal Palace earlier last month and he has since been in the treatment room receiving treatment for the setback.

Speaking to MUTV, Solskjaer has now acknowledged that both Pogba and Martial are sidelined for the Foxes clash but they could return in a week's time for the game at West Ham United.

Meanwhile, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw and Jesse Lingard are currently 50/50 for tomorrow's league game while Diogo Dalot, Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are certainly out for the encounter.

Manchester United head into tomorrow's game with just five points accumulated from the opening four league matches. They are currently on a three-match winless streak.
