10.30pm Man Utd transfer news LIVE: Sancho move back on, Ronaldo thoughts on Utd return, McTominay criticised by Scholes


Manchester United have been handed a fresh injury blow with defender Victor Lindelof coming off in the 2-2 draw away at Leicester City.

The 26-year-old was named in the starting line-up filling in at right-back for the absent Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Lindelof was forced off on the 66 minute mark with a back injury – an issue he has been struggling with – and he was replaced by super sub Edinson Cavani.

After the game, boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave an injury update on the Sweden international.

Solskjaer told Man United’s club website: “It is his back again I think.

“So we will just have to assess that one before Wolverhampton.

“Then again, Eric is fit now, Axel is fit, so of course we might have to look at that before Wolverhampton. 

“We don’t have time to worry about it. This time around, we have around 30 hours to prepare for this game and hopefully the players will use them wisely.”
