Solskjaer casts doubt over Wan-Bissaka & Lindelof’s involvement 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 would put Everton to the sword just before the last 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.

United will begin this weekend’s action 10th in the table, though they could move up to 6th if they win their game in hand.

However, a win over the Saints doesn’t seem too likely at the moment, with Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side up to 5th in the league and unbeaten in five.

Solskjaer on Lindelof & Aaron Wan-Bissaka

And it sounds as though Man United may have to face this in-form Southampton side without some of their key defenders.

Victor Lindelof was taken off at half-time in United’s latest Champions League tie whilst Aaron Wan-Bissaka was withdrawn just before the hour mark.

Solskjaer has since revealed that both players had picked up some issues in the game and though there is hope they can recover for the Southampton game, he is not sure:

“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.”
