Solskjaer says Shaw and Lindelof are fit for Man United’s trip to Burnley

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has cleared Luke Shaw, and Victor Lindelof for Manchester United’s trip to Burnley, where Paul Pogba and Eric Bailly may also be involved.

The Red Devils are level on 33 points with Premier League leaders Liverpool and will usurp them with a positive result on Tuesday evening at Turf Moor.

There had been a number of injury doubts for the game but Solskjaer provided a positive update ahead of a fixture that sees Edinson Cavani return from a three-game ban.

‘All of them trained today,’ Solskjaer said of Pogba, Shaw, Lindelof and Bailly.

‘Paul and Eric just didn’t do all of it, but Luke and Victor did all of it.’

The United boss added: ‘I’ve got a decent amount of players to pick from so let’s see how Paul and Eric are tomorrow.

‘Edinson has trained well when he’s been banned. He’s had a couple of days off, of course, as well – you can’t train too much.

‘But he’s ready to go, he gives us a different option. He’s a different type of striker or forward than Mason (Greenwood), Anthony (Martial) and Marcus (Rashford), so I’m glad to have him back. That’s why we brought him in.

‘He’s contributed really well so far and I’m sure he’ll be really important for us now until the end of the season. We feel the season starts tomorrow night.
