Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms, Manchester United FC trio Paul Pogba, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw injury in third round.
The trio played no part in United’s win at Old Trafford on Saturday evening, having all started within the EFL Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester City three days earlier.
Solskjaer made nine changes against Watford, naming Bruno Fernandes, Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford on the substitutes bench among others, though Pogba, Lindelof and Shaw weren’t included within the matchday squad.
The United manager confirmed that each one three were missing through injury in his post-match news conference , though was optimistic about Eric Bailly after the defender was forced off during the primary half.
Bailly was substituted for Maguire after a collision with goalkeeper Dean Henderson left him dazed and requiring assistance to go away the pitch.
Solskjaer didn’t know the complete extent of Bailly’s problem but believed the difficulty to be with the 26-year-old’s neck and didn’t suspect that Bailly suffered concussion.
“He got an honest whack,” he said. “I don’t think it’s concussion, hopefully a muscle injury and we’ll need to check it tomorrow. Fingers crossed he won’t be out for too long.”
