Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has picked three players that need to perform Manchester United’s injury crisis.

The Red Devils take on Leicester at Old Trafford on Saturday as they look to get their season back on track following three fixtures without a win.

Fans were left disappointed with the news that Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw will be unavailable for the visit of the Foxes, but Solskjaer is feeling positive about the rest of his squad.

He said: "Well, you’ve got players who can come in with loads of experience.

“Juan (Mata), Nemanja (Matic) and Ash (Young) who didn’t start the first game and have got to step up and the average age might go up."

The Norwegian boss has hinted that Matic could have a big role to play while Pogba is out injured, which will come as good news to the Serbian after spending time on the bench.

He said after the draw at Southampton: “The coach must opt for the team that will fight for the title and if he does not win, he bears the responsibility.

“I have been in football for a long time.

“I have played almost all the games for all the clubs in the last 10 years.

“In order for me to play, one had to sit on the bench and accept that fact, and so do I now.

“In the first two or three games he picked the team without me.

“I work as hard as I can.

“We respect the decision, it’s up to me to show him that he was wrong and to bring me back to where I belong.

“There is no problem. I told him I disagreed with him but that he had to decide the team.”

United take on Leicester before traveling to Kazakhstan in their opening Europa League clash.

Solskjaer’s men take on FC Astana in a bid to get off to a good start, with several players likely to be rested.
