Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed an update to his plans for Sunday's Premier League match against Brighton & Hove Albion (14:00 GMT kick-off).
The home match against the Seagulls is the final one before an international break and affords the Reds an opportunity to build on Thursday's Europa League triumph over Partizan Belgrade.
Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire appeared to sustain knocks in the 3-0 victory, with the Scotland international's ankle problem initially deemed the more serious.
Victor Lindelof missed the Partizan game due to an issue with his back but he could be in a position to return, even if the other sidelined players, such as Luke Shaw and Axel Tuanzebe, appear unlikely to figure. Paul Pogba has already been ruled out for the rest of the month, while Tim Fosu-Mensah and Eric Bailly are making progress after surgery.
When asked if any of the injured Reds will be back, Ole replied:
“Hopefully Scott. Hopefully Victor as well, but I don’t know because he hasn’t trained this week. It’s his back.”
One man definitely out is Ashley Young, who is suspended after accumulating five yellow cards in the league. Brandon Williams is one option to operate at left-back, while Marcos Rojo, who has impressed the boss in the heart of the defence, is another.
When quizzed about Williams's introduction, the manager said:
“There are options. I’m not going to give the team out now. Ashley is suspended and I felt we needed a strong team tonight [Thursday] and an experienced team. We just wanted the win.”
