Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms double fitness concern ahead of Wolves clash

Ole drops fitness update ahead of Wolves clash

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that he is unsure regarding the fitness of two first-team stars ahead of the FA Cup third round replay against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Red Devils picked up their first win of the year with the 4-0 thumping of Norwich City at Old Trafford, and the match saw Marcus Rashford make his 200th appearance for the side and score a brace.

However, he was substituted at the hour mark of that game with a minor knock and Solskjaer has now suggested that he will make a late decision on the forward's involvement against Wolves on Wednesday.

“I don’t know. If he’s ready, and if I decide to play him, you’ll see. He’s played many games and I might have to look at it and see how we can manage him. But, we’ve got a week off very soon – in February,” he told MUTV.

Meanwhile, Luke Shaw has been absent for the past two games with an illness but Solskjaer remains hopeful that the left-back will return in time for the Cup clash.

"He didn’t feel right. He’s been ill. So, for me, fine; go home. Hopefully, he’ll be ready for Wednesday,” he continued when asked about Shaw's recovery period.
