Manchester United boss, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, has suggested Victor Lindelof won’t be available for selection as we visit Villa Park to take on Aston Villa this Thursday.

The Swede was taken off at halftime during our 5-2 win over Bournemouth last Saturday, and it was later revealed he may have picked up a knock during the game.

Olé recently had a chat with the official Man United website, and when asked to provide an update on Lindelof’s condition, the Norwegian said, “Not yet, no. It’s not too bad. He’ll play soon.

“I’m not sure if he’ll manage the Villa game, but he might do.”

Eric Bailly was brought in to replace Lindelof on Saturday, and it appears the Ivorian may be in line to start against Villa this Thursday.
