Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Alex Telles will miss Manchester United’s Premier League clash against Arsenal.

The Red Devils have sparkled in the Champions League 5 – 0 win against RB Leipzig earlier this week, while yesterday evening the Gunners have defeated their Europa League opponents, Dundalk. Both sides will be looking for a win when they face each other on Sunday.

Ahead of the clash, Solskjaer has given an injury update, claiming that the club newcomer will be out of action due to a positive coronavirus test.

“Alex won’t be ready, no, so apart from that I would think everyone else looks like they could be involved,” he said in his pre-match press conference.

On goalkeeper Sergio Romero and defender Phil Jones, Solskjaer added:

“Well, Sergio [Romero] has just come back into training this week, so he’s started his pre-season work and is working to get to his peak fitness with the goalkeepers,” he added.

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