Man Utd hit by injury crisis ahead of Leicester clash

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is waiting on the fitness reports of five players ahead of their clash with Leicester this weekend.

Defensive duo Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, midfielders Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba and striker Anthony Martial were all forced to miss their national side's games over the break.

Shaw missed out on selection for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo due to a hamstring injury picked up against Crystal Palace and subsequently missed the draw with Southampton, says the Mirror.

Wan-Bissaka and Lingard both withdrew from international duty with England last week, the former with a back injury, the latter due to illness.

French duo Pogba and Martial also missed international duty this week, Pogba picked up an ankle injury against the Saints at St. Mary's which forced him out of France contention.

Martial picked up a knock in the home defeat to Palace two weeks ago and was not a part of the match-day squad against the Saints last week.
