Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given an injury update on the squad ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Manchester City.

On Victor Lindelof, Solskjaer said: “He’s still a doubt, but hopefully, he can come back in tomorrow and say he’s ready.

“I would expect him to be ready, put it that way but I can’t promise you.”

Solskjaer also confirmed that French defender Raphael Varane will miss about four to five weeks of football action.

He added: “With all the technology now you expect him to be out for four or five weeks with the scans. It’s a blow for us.

“Raphael has come in and been really really influential.

“Eric [Bailly] came in last time and was excellent. That’s why we have a big squad and cope with absentees.”
