Manchester United players Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba are both injury doubts as the Red Devils face Arsenal on Monday night.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had been hoping for the French duo to be back for the Premier League clash, which already looks like a vital match for the under-pressure Norwegian.
United could go into the game 13 points adrift of leaders Liverpool, who play Sheffield United on Saturday.
Pogba returned for Wednesday’s EFL Cup win against Rochdale following an ankle injury, but suffered another setback and currently has a swollen ankle.
Martial is also a doubt due to the thigh injury which has kept him out since the home defeat to Crystal Palace, while Marcus Rashford could be out for two weeks after suffering a groin strain in last week’s 2-0 defeat to West Ham.
That could mean Mason Greenwood earning his first Premier League start of the season.
The 17-year-old has scored in successive games against Astana and Rochdale and is now pressing to be included against Arsenal.
