Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits they go to PSG with an injury-hit squad.

 

Solskjaer has revealed none of his injured players have a chance of recovering for the second-leg of the last 16 Champions League tie, in which they trail 2-0.

 

He will be without nine crocked first-team players, while £89m midfielder Paul Pogba is suspended after his red card late on in that first leg defeat.

 

Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial, Phil Jones, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia were injured already, and Alexis Sanchez has now joined the list of casualties.

 

With so many players missing, Solskjaer had hoped to be able to be able to call on Martial — but he now says the Frenchman will not be risked.

 

Asked if any of United’s injured players will be fit for Wednesday’s tie, the Norwegian said: “Not really, no. It doesn’t look like it. I don’t think we can risk Martial. He’s not been training yet, so I don’t think so.”
