Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms three Manchester United stars are injured

After Manchester United’s narrow win over Watford, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named three key stars who are out injured.

The former Molde man oversaw a narrow 1-0 win over the London club in the FA Cup and fans are keen to quickly move on.

Solskjaer opted to make numerous changes to the starting XI as many had expected but it appears not all were made by choice.

A few notable faces were missing from the matchday squad and supporters will be concerned why that’s the case.

Eric Bailly was also substituted off the field after picking up a knock but his injury has quickly been cleared up and it seems he could be fit for United’s next fixture.

All three players are key cogs in Solskjaer’s system so their absences will be felt, though fans won’t be overly concerned as their direct replacements can be equally exciting in other ways.

Paul Pogba’s absence could mean seeing more of Donny van de Beek who impressed in the win over Watford.

Luke Shaw‘s absence should mean more minutes are handed to Alex Telles who was the one who delightfully assisted Scott McTominay‘s winner.

Victor Lindelof’s injury should see Axel Tuanzebe or Eric Bailly feature more often and supporters have long loved both players.

Manchester United have fielded some of the worlds greatest centre backs over the years, but how much do you know about them? Take our quiz below to find out!
