Victor Lindelof back injury confirmed by Solskjaer after draw with Leicester

Manchester United have a Victor Lindelof back injury to add to their frustrations following a 2-2 draw with Leicester City.

The game itself was one that Manchester United had several chances to win. Unfortunately, the Red Devils couldn’t get the job done and had to settle for a 2-2 draw.

Defensively, big mistakes were made for both Leicester City goals but hopefully, the players will learn from where they went wrong and not allow it to happen again going forward.

To further compound the full-time misery, United were hit with an injury concern to Victor Lindelof. Now, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is sweating on the fitness of the key man ahead of the Wolves away game on Tuesday night.

Check out what Solskjaer had to say about the Victor Lindelof back injury here:

“It is his back again I think,” Solskjaer told “So we will just have to assess that one before Wolverhampton.

“Then again, Eric is fit now, Axel is fit, so of course we might have to look at that before Wolverhampton.

“We don’t have time to worry about it. This time around, we have around 30 hours to prepare for this game and hopefully, the players will use them wisely.”

This isn’t the first time Lindelof has been having troubles with his back. In fact, it’s a problem that has been plaguing him for pretty much the whole season.

For that reason alone, I’d approach this injury with caution. We’ve seen how bad back problems can be, heck, it floored Marcus Rashford for the best part of a few months. The last thing we’d need is to lose one of our first-choice centre-halves for a prolonged period of the season.

Obviously, we all have our concerns about Lindelof, though you have to give it to him the ‘Ice Man’ is having an excellent season. Put it this way, I still trust him more than I do either Axel Tuanzebe or Eric Bailly at this point.

Hopefully, the issue is something that can be managed carefully for the remainder of the season, before Lindelof can rest up over the summer ahead of the 2021/22 term.
