OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER could be without four first-team stars for Tuesday’s trip to Burnley.
Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof sat out of Saturday’s 1-0 FA Cup win over Watford.
Solskjaer has admitted that the injured trio could also miss the trip to Turf Moor.
But the boss is hopeful they will return in time for Sunday’s game against Liverpool.
When asked if they will be back in action this week, he told reporters: “I hope so. I hope all of them for Liverpool anyway.
“I’m not sure if they’ll make the Burnley one, but we have light training tomorrow [Sunday] and we’ll see on Monday.”

The 26-year-old injured his neck after being clattered by his own keeper, Dean Henderson.
But Solskjaer gave a positive update on Bailly’s condition after the game.

Axel Tuanzebe is expected to start the back alongside Alex Telles, Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Fred and Scott McTominay are set to occupy their normal role in front of the back four.
Should Pogba miss out, Daniel James could be deployed on the right with Marcus Rashford on the left.
Bruno Fernandes would fill the No10 spot with Anthony Martial leading the line.
Edinson Cavani is another option as he is available after serving his suspension.
