Solskjaer Confirms Martial & Pogba to Miss Leicester Clash.

Manchester United will be without Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial for their home date with Leicester, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed.

The Red Devils have seen two French stars pick up untimely knocks .

Martial sat out United’s 1-1 draw with Southampton two weeks ago after tweaking his thigh, while Pogba was unable to link up with his country during the international break after damaging his ankle.

That means neither will be able to figure against the Foxes when Premier League action resumes on Saturday.

Red Devils boss Solskjaer told reporters at his pre-match press conference when asked for an update on his walking wounded: “Well the treatment room’s been busy.

“And it still is. So we don’t really know who’s going to be available. There’s maybe Aaron, maybe Jesse and I think maybe that’s it from the ones that pulled out [from national squads], but I can’t promise those two will be available either.

“Pogba won’t be fit, no. Unless he’s had a miraculous recovery overnight from yesterday to today or tonight to tomorrow, he’s not been ready to do 100 per cent training, no.

“We hope more can be ready for West Ham next week and Paul and Anthony are in that category. I think they’ll be ready for then and can’t say more than that really.”
