Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes to have influential midfielder Paul Pogba and defenders Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw back from injury for their Premier League encounter against Liverpool on Sunday.
The trio missed the FA Cup third-round win over Watford at the weekend and are doubtful for Tuesday’s league game at Burnley.
Solskjaer’s troops have 33 points from 16 games and will move above leaders Liverpool if they avoid defeat at Turf Moor.
“I hope so, I hope all of them for Liverpool, definitely. I’m not sure if they’ll make the Burnley one,” said Solskjaer when asked if the three players can be ready for Burnley and Liverpool.
‘The Red Devils’ have won eight and drawn two of their last 10 matches but Solskjaer said it was far too early to talk about a title challenge.
“We’re not even halfway through the season yet. Every game in the Premier League is a challenge, is a test. Every game gives you a different test,” said Solskjaer.
“Watford gave us a test. Burnley is one test, Liverpool is another, then you go to Fulham (Jan. 20), which is a different test again. No one will remember how the league table looked like on Jan. 12, 2021.”
