All the latest information on injuries and suspensions in the Manchester United first-team squad, with updates taken directly from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s press conferences and interviews.

INJURIES

Manchester United are likely to be without two key midfielders for Sunday’s Premier League fixture at Southampton.

Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay haven’t featured since the international break and the trip to the south coast could be too soon for them to join up with the rest of the squad.

Marcus Rashford, Victor Lindelof and Aaron Wan-Bissaka should be fit, however.

Victor Lindelof should be fit for Southampton, according to Solskjaer.

“Scott and Paul, they didn't train this morning,” said Ole at his press conference. “They were not on the grass so they are very unlikely for the weekend.

“Marcus, Victor and Aaron, they came through the session today, so hopefully they should be okay, [if] still not 100 per cent.”

Luke Shaw misses out on a reunion with his former club, with the left-back still being sidelined with a hamstring problem. However, Jesse Lingard could be in line for a first appearance since September, after his period of isolation due to coming into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 ended.

“Luke has just started his rehab out on the grass, he's not with the team yet. Jesse's back from his isolation period so he's come back with the group and had a couple of days' training.”

Phil Jones remains on the sidelines.

Phil Jones, who last featured for the Reds in the 6-0 Emirates FA Cup win over Tranmere in January, has not been included in the Champions League and Premier League squads for 2020/21, after surgery.

“Phil has been injured and he had an operation and he’s been working really hard to get back. He’ll hopefully get fit during December. That was a natural thing when you’re injured, you can’t really be in the squad can you? He’s working really diligently and he’ll be coming back soon.”

SUSPENSIONS

Axel Tuanzebe will miss the Champions League group-stage game against Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford.

The homegrown defender has already picked up three yellow cards in this season’s competition and will now serve a one-match ban.
