Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly and Harry Maguire could miss the upcoming clash with West Ham.

The Red Devild are set to face the Hammers in the FA Cup 5th round on Tuesday, while ahead of the match, the Norwegian boss has provided an injury update.

“With Paul and Eric, I’m not sure if they’re going to be fit,” he said. “I think Eric is closer than Paul.

“Of course, I think about if [Maguire] needs a rest. If he physically can’t keep going and going.

“Then, the nature of a centre-back position is a different position compared to full-backs or wide men or even centre midfielders, or any other position on the pitch. The centre-backs are the ones that you’re protecting mostly from the real fatigue because you’re working less.

“Then again, he’s never injured, Harry. He’s never been really badly hurt – touch wood – and hopefully he’ll be able to carry on.

“But, yeah, I’m not sure if he’ll play on Tuesday or not. I’ve not decided yet.”
