Manchester United will be without six first-team stars for the visit of Leicester City to Old Trafford on Saturday, but Aaron Wan-Bissaka is in the provisional 19-man squad.

French duo Anthony Martial (thigh) and Paul Pogba (ankle) are both out of the game against Brendan Rodgers' Foxes, with Luke Shaw, Diogo Dalot, Jesse Lingard and long-term absentee Eric Bailly all missing.

Wan-Bissaka was said to be touch-and-go having pulled out of the England squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo with a back injury, but - as reported by the Manchester Evening News - he was seen by photographers when the United squad reported for duty at the Lowry Hotel on Friday evening.

Youngsters Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes and Mason Greenwood are also all included.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be desperate to return to winning ways on Saturday having seen his side fail to win any of their last three Premier League games.

But the Norwegian has been hampered by his squad's injury issues.

"Well the treatment room's been busy," said Solskjaer at his press conference on Friday.

"And it still is. So we don't really know who's going to be available. There's maybe Aaron, maybe Jesse and I think maybe that's it from the ones that pulled out [of international action], but I can't promise those two will be available either.
