Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Phil Johnes and Harry Maguire will not available for Tuesday’s Premier League clash against Fulham.

The Norwegian has met the media and provided an injury update on the players.

Speaking about Maguire’s fitness, he said: “It’s still too early. We’re not at the testing stage yet. We’ll give him as much time as possible to recover.”

“We’re not going to see him back in the league so hopefully we can welcome him back for the [Europa Lague] final. But I’m not sure.”

Then he added: “We had a couple of days off after the Liverpool match and we’ve welcomed Dan James back and Anthony Martial back so that’s big, big plusses for us. We didn’t lose any against Liverpool so we’re fit.

“They [James and Martial] have done all their rehab programmes and ticked all the boxes so a couple of days of training before the game with the team, but they’re not ready to start a game yet.”
