The international break has not been quite helpful for Solskjaer, as four Manchester United players are unavailable for their next game.

Things cannot get any worse for Ole Gunnar Solksjer, as Manchester United could be out to play Watford this weekend without four key players.

Yes, you read it right. The international break has turned out to be the Norwegian’s worst nightmare as four players are currently undergoing recovery.

The players who could potentially miss the Red Devils’ first game after the international break are Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane, Edinson Cavani, and Luke Shaw.

The France midfielder suffered from a thigh injury during a training session with his national team. As per reports, the 28-year-old could miss football for a couple of months.

His national teammate Varane was initially injured while on duty with Les Bleus but returned in the 3-0 victory against Tottenham. 

However, things were aggravated as he sustained a hamstring problem during their away game against Atalanta. The central defender is not expected to play until early December.

Cavani is dealing with a tendon issue that was worsened during their triumph over Spurs. In fact, the Uruguayan striker is back home at the moment and focusing on his recovery.

Shaw missed out on England’s final World Cup qualifiers against Albania and San Marino this past week. The left-back suffered from a head blow during Man Utd’s game against neighbours Manchester City.

If there’s any consolation for Ole, Scott McTominay will possibly be available for United as they meet the Hornets on Saturday.
