Solskjaer confirms Bailly and Lindelof availability

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed a double injury boost ahead of the Premier League clash against Arsenal.

The Red Devils were without Victor Lindelof (back issue) and Eric Bailly (knock) for the surprise 2-1 defeat to Sheffield United in midweek.

Following the game, Solskjaer hinted that Lindelof would return for the Gunners clash and he has now confirmed that Bailly is also available.

"He's travelling to Arsenal, yeah. Apart from that, we didn't get any other losses from Sheffield United and the players are all fit and raring to go," He told the club's official website.

Lindelof and Maguire have been the regular central defensive pairing for United this term and Bailly may start on the bench tomorrow.

The Red Devils are currently second in the league standings, one point behind Manchester City, who have a game in hand.

They suffered a costly defeat against the Blades and can't afford to lose further ground, if they want to compete for the title.
