Ole Gunnar Solskjaer offered an injury update after Manchester United’s thrilling 3-2 win over Southampton yesterday.

United face Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night, needing a point to secure progression in the Champions League.

As per United’s YouTube channel, Solskjaer did not completely rule out Luke Shaw from a return against PSG.

He also offered a brief update on Alex Telles’s groin issue, which forced him off late in the game.

“Paul and Scott, hopefully they can start training with us tomorrow, we don’t know, hopefully, ” said Solskjaer.

“Luke, I think is out still, we’re not 100 per cent sure,” he continued, raising the prospect that Shaw could make an unlikely return against PSG.


Telles has performed impressively in Shaw’s absence, and Solskjaer confirmed the Brazilian had an issue, which ‘hopefully won’t be too bad’.

Brandon Williams came off the bench against Southampton and will fill in if required.

Meanwhile, Donny van de Beek posted an Instagram photo of a swollen ankle alongside the caption ‘welcome to the Premier League’.

It was a tough afternoon, especially in the first half when it seemed Southampton were content to make tactical fouls to disrupt United’s rhythm.

United are picking up knocks along the way as this season serves up a game every three or four days.

Ensuring progression against PSG this week would perhaps allow Solskjaer the luxury of rotating against RB Leipzig in the final round of matches – which would be an added bonus.
