Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provides Manchester United injury updates on Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Victor Lindelof


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful that Aaron Wan-Bissaka could return tonight for Manchester United against Wolves, while Victor Lindelof’s availability remains uncertain.

The Red Devils have been without their starting right-back after a knock sustained in the 6-2 victory over Leeds, which has forced Wan-Bissaka to miss the games against Everton and Leicester City.

Lindelof had deputised for Wan-Bissaka, but picked up a back injury in the 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium on Boxing Day.

While the Swedish defender faces a uphill battle to feature at Molineux, Solskjaer believes Wan-Bissaka has a good chance to return.

“Victor didn’t train this morning [Monday] so we’ll give him 24 hours. He’s still getting treatment,” said Solskjaer.

“Aaron trained with the boys. We didn’t do a lot because there was snow and it was just about preparation training anyway. If there’s no reaction he should be available.”

Solskjaer could rotate his squad to cope with the intense schedule, with Alex Telles, Donny van de Beek and Mason Greenwood not featuring at all against the Foxes.

“We’ve got used to it and I think the players are getting more and more robust and physically ready for games, with only two days rest in between,” Solskjaer added.

“Of course, we’ve got about 30 hours more than Wolverhampton to recover so we have a slight advantage in that respect, and hopefully we can make use of those extra calories of energy we’ve got.”
