Speaking to BT Sport after the devastating defeat to PSG, Solskjaer admitted he couldn’t yet to name the return dates for attacking pair:

“You can’t give that [the injuries] as a reason [why we lost] because we have players like Mata and Sanchez to come on and they’re quality players.

“But, of course, Jesse and Anthony, they give us something. Let’s hope they’re not too serious.

“They’re muscle injuries, so we’ll just have to wait a couple of days.”
