Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be without Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Sunday’s scoring hero Scott McTominay when the Reds face Everton in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday.
The news that Solskjaer will not feature his first team duo was confirmed on the club’s official website ManUtd.com.
You could say both players will be a huge loss for the Red Devils looking to lift their first major trophy since 2017.
United are notoriously lacking in quality in their right-back position and with first-choice Wan-Bissaka now ruled out due to injury, Solskjaer will be forced to turn to players like Timothy Fosu-Mensah or Brandon Williams.
Elsewhere, Sunday’s man of the match McTominay, who scored a three-minute double against archrival Leeds United in the Premier League, will also miss Wednesday’s cup tie against Everton.
United’s outstanding area-to-area midfielder limped off late during his team’s clash against Leeds United and has now been officially ruled out for the Reds’ next game.
Speaking on the club’s website, this is what Solskjaer said: “Those two [Wan-Bissaka and McTominay] He will definitely miss the game against Everton.
Hopefully it won’t be too long. They will be out, but other than that, I think they are all, more or less, fine. “
Solskjaer hopes that Wan-Bissaka and McTominay are ready for the Red Devils’ important domestic showdown against Leicester City on Boxing Day.
A festive win against Brendon Roger’s high-flying Foxes could see the Reds rise to second place in the Premier League table.
