Manchester United have been hit by a triple injury blow ahead of their crucial fixtures against Leeds United and Barcelona. The Red Devils will be without three key players for both games, as Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard are all set to miss out due to injuries.
Rashford, who has been in fine form this season, has been ruled out with a back injury, while Pogba is suffering from an ankle problem. Lingard, who has been in and out of the starting line-up this season, is also set to miss the games due to a muscular issue.
The news will come as a huge blow to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was hoping to have his full strength squad available for the crucial games. The Red Devils will now have to rely on their remaining players to step up and perform in the absence of the trio.
The fixtures against Leeds and Barcelona are hugely important for Manchester United, as they look to secure a top four finish in the Premier League and progress to the next round of the Champions League. The absence of Rashford, Pogba and Lingard will make the task even harder for the Red Devils, but Solskjaer will be hoping that his side can rise to the challenge and deliver the goods.
