It is cold and flu season after all. I know because I’ve been fighting the flu all week and spent two days bed ridden!

ESPN reporter Rob Dawson delivered the news earlier today via Twitter, as seen below:

Wolves will give United a good go on Saturday — regardless of what absentees Solskjaer has to deal with — so being without two more attacking players, along with Paul Pogba, is not good news for the Norwegian coach.

The Red Devils have to travel to Molineux for a 5.30 kick-off which promises to be a close encounter.

As per Dawson, Solskjaer has already confirmed that Sergio Romero will start between the posts.

We could do without anymore players pulling out between now and Saturday.
