Manchester United are sweating on the fitness of five players ahead of their clash with Leicester this weekend  Defensive duo Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, midfielders Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba and striker Anthony Martial were all forced to miss their national side’s games over the break   Shaw missed out on selection for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo due to a hamstring injury picked up against Crystal Palace and subsequently missed the draw with Southampton  Wan-Bissaka and Lingard both withdrew from international duty with England last week, the former with a back injury, the latter due to illness  French duo Pogba and Martial also missed international duty this week, Pogba picked up an ankle injury against the Saints at St Mary’s which forced him out of France contention.  Martial picked up a knock in the home defeat to Palace two weeks ago and was not a part of the match-day squad against the Saints last week  With each player out in key positions for the Red Devils it poses a difficult situation for boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ahead of the Premier League’s return  Solskjaer opted to use Ashley Young at left-back in place of Shaw and could do so again this weekend  All five players were initially predicted to be back this week, at the earliest, for the weekend’s action but now face a race against time to be fit   However, United were handed a prospective boost with Eric Bailly who could return early from injury  Bailly picked up a knee injury during pre-season after he underwent surgery at the end of July and is now targeting a November return, a month ahead of schedule  Leicester visit Old Trafford on Saturday with kick-off at 3pm.
