Mixed news before LASK

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given an injury update on Paul Pogba & Anthony Martial ahead of their clash with LASK.

The Red Devils have struggled with injuries this season, mainly relating to Pogba.

The Frenchman has missed the majority of the campaign due to an ankle problem.

That injury has limited Pogba to just eight appearances in all competitions.

Seven of those come in the Premier League, with Pogba failing to make a single appearance on the European stage.

Anthony Martial joined Pogba on the sidelines this week after injuring himself in the clash with Manchester City.

Now, Ole Gunnar Solskjær has given an update on both players ahead of United’s clash with LASK on Thursday.

Pogba back next week, Martial to miss LASK

Speaking ahead of the Europa League fixture, Solskjaer revealed that Pogba will miss the game, but should return to fitness next week.

“Paul is getting closer but today he wasn’t with the team. He’s not trained fully with the team yet but by next week he’ll be ready,” Solskjaer explained, as quoted by Sky Sports. 

Though, it’s not good news for Anthony Martial.

Solskjaer claims the Frenchman will miss the LASK game, and could even miss the Tottenham clash at the weekend.

“Anthony hurt himself when he slid into the post so he’s not ready for this game,” Solskjaer added.

“Hopefully he can be ready for Sunday [against Tottenham] but I’m not sure. He’s struggling a little bit.”
