Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an injury update on his two absent midfielders Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay.
McTominay is continuing his rehabilitation on knee ligament damage that has seen him out of action since the 4-1 thrashing over Newcastle on Boxing Day.
The Scottish international left Old Trafford on crutches and in a leg brace that day but has since had the brace removed.
Pogba, meanwhile, underwent an operation on his right ankle earlier this month and has not featured sine the Newcastle game either.
The Frenchman has only featured eight times in all competitions in a campaign that has been thwarted by injuries.
But Solskjaer provided some positive news on the pair in Tuesday’s press-conference ahead of the Carabao Cup semi-final second-leg against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
“It’s hard to put timescales on long-term injuries because they also need the training before being injury free and need to be fitter,” Solskjaer said, as quoted by Manchester Evening News.
“Paul’s had his cast off and Scott took his brace off so at least they can now start doing some work on the grass.”
