Forward Courtney Senior is a doubt for the U’s after being substituted with a quad injury at half-time during their 2-2 draw against Scunthorpe United on Saturday. The 22-year-old, who has scored three goals so far this season, including one in the Carabao Cup, was replaced by Callum Harriott, although manager John McGreal said he hoped the problem wasn’t as bad as first feared.

In a pre-match press conference, which was held on Sunday, Solskjaer was asked by reporters whether any of the club’s injured players might return. “Maybe Diogo after he’s had a week of training, but probably no one else,” said Ole.

Dalot’s season so far has unfortunately been disrupted by injuries that have limited him to just three first-team appearances. His last outing was against Newcastle United at St James’ Park on 6 October, over two months’ ago. 

While speaking on Sunday, the boss then provided this update on Pogba: “Of all things he’s now struck down with illness and he’s been off for two or three days. That’s not beneficial and that’s probably set him back quite a bit.

“As I’ve said so many times, Paul is a top player that we want to see playing his best football at Man United.

“We just need to get him match fit. He might be half an hour, 45, 60, 90 minutes – who knows – in the first game. We’re working hard to get him back, but now he’s ill.”
