Axel Tuanzebe & Victor Lindelof Man United

Manchester United were held to a 2-2 draw by Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday and defender Victor Lindelof has picked up an injury during the game.

With Aaron Wan-Bissaka already out, Victor Lindelof was deployed at right-back but the Swede had to be taken off in the 66th minute, to be replaced by Tuanzebe.

And after the match, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted that Lindelof could be an absentee for the Wolves game on Tuesday night.

“It is his back again I think,” Ole told “So we will just have to assess that one before Wolverhampton.”

“Then again, Eric is fit now, Axel is fit, so of course we might have to look at that before Wolverhampton.

“We don’t have time to worry about it. This time around, we have around 30 hours to prepare for this game and hopefully the players will use them wisely.

“I don’t know how badly Victor is hurt now. Axel played really well at Everton, I have to say. It was his first game for a long while after a hamstring injury so I couldn’t risk him in a 12:30 kick-off in a full game.

“Eric [Bailly] played really well. He’s been fitter for longer than Axel and, with [Jamie] Vardy’s pace as well, you’re always happy to have Eric in the team.”

“Hopefully, Victor won’t be too bad and Aaron can recover very soon but, at the moment, Axel is now ready for Tuesday, if needed.”

If Victor Lindelof is not fit in time for the Wolves game in midweek then it could be a bit of a headache for the Man United manager.

Yes, Eric Bailly is back to full fitness but he did not look really convincing against Leicester on Saturday and to make matters worse, Aaron Wan-Bissaka might not be available as well.

With two of his first-choice defenders likely to be absent, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might have to think conservatively on Tuesday, despite Wolves losing three out of their last four Premier League matches.
