Injury update:  3 players confirmed absent for Man Utd vs Arsenal

Manchester United are currently on a 7 game winning streak under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer. The Red Devils next face Arsenal in the FA Cup on Friday and they could be without a number of players.

United have emerged a new club following the exit of Mourinho with the likes of Pogba, Rashford and Lingard coming alive in the past few weeks. Solksjaer would face a difficult challenge on Friday at the Emirates and has confirmed the players that would miss the clash.

Centre-backs Marcos Rojo and Chris Smalling are expected to miss the clash due to injuries. Both players are yet to feature for United under Solksjaer and could face extended times on the sidelines. It is understood that Smalling has resumed training but Rojo is expected to sit out a little longer.

Towering midfielder Marouane Fellaini is also expected to miss the game due to a calf injury which could keep him on the sidelines for at least 2-3 weeks.

Despite these injuries, Solksjaer still has an array of choices to pick from ahead of the clash. Eric Bailey, Victor Lindelof and Phil Jones are available in the centre back positions, whilst he has a full quartet of midfielders to choose from to replace Fellaini in the middle of the park.

Former Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is expected to feature in the match in what would be his first clash at the Emirates since his transfer last January.
