Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been hit with another blow ahead of the crunch clash against Everton on Saturday with the news that Victor Lindelof is struggling with a back injury.
The 26-year-old missed the Champions League defeat at the hands of Istanbul Basaksehir on Wednesday night, and will likely start against Everton on Saturday if he returns to full fitness.
Solskjaer revealed Lindelof’s status after the game, and it is likely to worry supporters.
“We decided to make a few changes,” Solskjaer said of his selection after the defeat.
“Nothing especially different to what we’ve always done tactically. We just didn’t perform.
“I think these players have played loads of games together, it was just maybe Donny [van de Beek] was the new addition.
“Victor has got a bad back so he couldn’t play and Axel stepped in.”
It remains unclear whether Lindelof will be fit to take on the Toffees at the weekend, but the defender will be keen to return to try and ease pressure on his under fire manager.
