Man Utd defender doubt for Burnley after leaving training early with illness

Victor Lindelof has been sent home early from Manchester United training with illness.

As reported by Manchester Evening News journalist Samuel Luckhurst, the Swedish international arrived at Carrington this morning but returned home after feeling unwell as a precaution.

The 25-year-old left just fifteen minutes after his arrival at the training complex, and there are now concerns over his fitness ahead of tomorrow’s clash against Burnley at Old Trafford.

When Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard were sent home early with illness ahead of the first leg of the Wolves FA Cup tie, neither made the squad for the trip to Molineux.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already has several injuries to contend with and there would be further frustration if Lindelof is absent against Burnley.

Whilst Lindelof hasn’t played well in the last few weeks, he remains  one of United’s only other match-fit centre backs alongside Harry Maguire.

Axel Tuanzebe and Marcos Rojo are both still sidelined and Eric Bailly is yet to play for the first-team again after a six month absence.

Phil Jones was an unused substitute against Liverpool and may have to come in alongside captain Maguire.

We hope Lindelof’s illness isn’t serious as this would be another blow to Solskjaer as his depleted squad prepare to face Burnley on Wednesday.
