EPL: Fresh blow for Solskjaer with six Man Utd players injured on international duty

Manchester United interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is facing a fresh injury crisis after Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic returned early from international duty, the UK Mirror reports.

Lukaku was released from the Belgium camp after undergoing an MRI scan on a foot injury, while Matic was allowed to leave Serbia’s squad after picking up an undisclosed problem.

Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial have already withdrawn from the England and France squads respectively.

Alexis Sanchez is also out and Marcus Rashford is carrying an ankle injury.

With Sanchez out for another month and Lukaku facing at least a week on the sidelines, Solskajer could face some tough selection decisions ahead of their busy season run-in.

United face Barcelona in the Champions League on April 10 and 16.

Their domestic run-in include games against Manchester City and Chelsea, both at Old Trafford.
