More bad news for Man Utd fans as Solskjaer confirmed this after Champions League loss to PSG

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked about the injuries picked up by Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial during the 2-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. The talented duo were forced to sit out the second half of the first leg of the round-of-16 tie, with Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata taking their place. Lingard pulled up after sending the ball wide to Martial on the break towards the end of the first period, while the Frenchman sustained his problem earlier in the proceedings but soldiered on until the interval. Ole confirmed the issues are hamstring and groin for Lingard and Martial respectively.

With more big games on the horizon, starting with the Emirates FA Cup fifth-round clash at Chelsea next Monday and the next Premier League outing against Liverpool at Old Trafford on 24 February, there must be concern about the availability of two key members of Ole’s squad.

““You can’t give that [the injuries] as a reason [why we lost] because we have players like Mata and Sanchez to come on and they’re quality players,”” Solskjaer told BT Sport. ““But, of course, Jesse and Anthony, they give us something. Let’s hope they’re not too serious.” ”They’re muscle injuries, so we’ll just have to wait a couple of days.

““Jesse and Anthony are big parts of our squad and when they went out, in the second half we didn’t have enough movement,”” Ole added at his press conference. ““We maybe need to find a different way of playing when Jesse and Anthony are unavailable.””

That could be the challenge for the caretaker boss if the pair are not available for the tough test at Stamford Bridge.

Solskjaer is confident Manchester United’s 2-0 Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain will not define our season. Second-half goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe mean that the French champions have a healthy advantage going into the second leg at the Parc des Princes in three weeks’ time. The Reds were dealt further blows after Paul Pogba was being sent off before the final whistle due to picking up a second yellow card When Ole spoke to BT Sport, MUTV and in his press conference after the game, he was met with a number of questions.

““It looked like the game we thought it was going to be. In the first half, there wasn’t really much in it, and then they got the first goal. When they got that one, it was a poor goal to give away. Then they got the momentum. They started to control the game. They had the experience to play it out.” ”You can see that we’ve not played games at this level for a while and we’ll have to learn from this experience, because it was one of those experiences that can go either way. It’s not going to be a season defining one for us. It has to be one that we’re going to learn from.”“”

Send your best wishes to Martial and Lingard as they recover from injury… Thanks
