“It'll still be a few weeks, he won't be playing in February that's for sure.

“Donny and Edinson are injured unfortunately, muscle injuries, so they won’t travel.  

“Apart from that, we have a couple of doubtful ones, if they'll be fit enough – Anthony [Martial] and Scott [McTominay].”  

The first leg of United's tie with Sociedad is being played in Turin as a result of coronavirus.
