Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United side will be strong favourites to pick up their first home win of the Premier League season on Saturday, when they face West Brom at Old Trafford.

However, things never seem to go easily for the Norwegian manager and following a number of injuries to key players during the international break it now looks as though Solskjaer will have to make do with a battered and bruised starting XI.

In defence, United will have to be wary of Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire, after the former was forced off against France with an injury in midweek and the latter returned from international duty with England with a bruised foot. Alex Telles is also likely to start at left back in place of the injured Luke Shaw.

Elsewhere, Solsjkaer will probably have to go without Anthony Martial, after the French forward was forced to bow out of his nation's win over Sweden in midweek with a minor back problem. He'll most likely join Edinson Cavani in a late fitness test ahead of the game.

This will most likely mean a return to the first team for Mason Greenwood, who'll join Marcus Rashford up front after the United talisman bowed out of England dury with a shoulder injury but trained on Thursday with the squad. As well as a possible start for Paul Pogba, who enjoyed a strong international week with the France national team.
