United will also be without Daniel James for Sunday's Premier League trip to Chelsea after the midfielder picked up an injury in Thursday's 0-0 draw with Real Sociedad in the second leg of their Europa League tie.

"He (James) felt a tweak. With the intensity he works at he felt something, so we hope it's not really serious. We'll have to check on him."

In more positive injury news, Solskjaer said striker Edinson Cavani, and midfielders Scott McTominay and Donny van de Beek could return to the side.

"Scott, Donny and Edinson we hope that they can be available for the weekend, but I'm not sure," he said.

United advanced to the Europa League last-16 by virtue of their 4-0 win in the first leg. They are second in the Premier League with 49 points, 10 behind Manchester City.
