Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard will miss out on Manchester United's upcoming games with Chelsea and Liverpool due to injury.
Lingard and Martial were forced out of this week's Champions League loss to Paris Saint-Germain with groin and hamstring injuries, respectively.
As a result, they will miss the club's FA Cup fifth-round clash with Chelsea on Monday as well as a Premier League battle with title contenders Liverpool on February 24.
One possible replacement named was striker Mason Greenwood but the 17-year-old is also injured, preventing him from making his first-team debut in their stead.
"I think they'll be out for two-to-three weeks," Solskjaer said of Lingard and Martial.
"Then, you're looking at young players, Mason Greenwood, it's your time to step in, and he's injured, unfortunately, out for a couple of weeks as well.
"Sometimes that's how the luck goes but Mason will get his chance."
Lingard was forced out of the 2-0 defeat to PSG late in the first half and was replaced by a relatively ineffective Alexis Sanchez.
