Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Shoretire, Amad in contention for Leicester

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Shola Shoretire and Amad will likely feature against Leicester City tonight.

The Old Trafford side are amid a span of four games in eight days as they host the Foxes on Tuesday night, followed by their rearranged Premier League fixture against Liverpool on Thursday and visit of Fulham in seven days' time.

The United boss admitted it was impossible to field a full-strength side for all three games which opens the door for teenagers Shoretire and Amad.

He said: "They are in contention. They are in the first-team squad, they are training with us every day.

"I would think that some of the young boys will get an appearance definitely. If it's coming on towards the end or from the start I don't know because I don't know how the players will be on Tuesday when we see them."
