Solskjaer casts doubt over involvement of Wan-Bissaka & Lindelof for Man United vs Southampton

Southampton vs Man United

Manchester United’s next outing sees them face a trip to Southampton on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils will head into the tie at St Mary’s looking to build on a decent run of form.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side put Everton to the sword just before the international break.

This was followed by United seeing off West Brom over the weekend, and then beating Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.

The Manchester giants are set to enter the weekend’s action sitting 10th in the Premier League table, though they could move up to 6th with a win in their game in hand.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton, though, will prove no pushovers, with the Saints up to 5th in the English top-flight, and unbeaten in five.

Solskjaer on Lindelof & Aaron Wan-Bissaka

In addition, it sounds as though Man United may have to face in-form Southampton without the services of some of their key defenders.

Victor Lindelof was taken off at half-time in the Reds’ Champions League win on Tuesday, whilst Aaron Wan-Bissaka was withdrawn just before the hour mark.

And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has since revealed that both players picked up issues, with their respective participation at St. Mary’s therefore in doubt:

“Hopefully they’ll be ready for the weekend but we’re not sure.

“It’s back problems for Victor and he had an ankle problem, Aaron, so there was no point taking any more chances and risking more swelling to it.”
