Paul Pogba will not return for Manchester United until at least next month.
Pogba suffered a thigh injury in United’s 3-3 draw at home to Everton and will be sidelined until at least March.
United will also be without Edinson Cavani and Donny van de Beek for Thursday’s Europa League last 32 first leg tie against Real Sociedad in Turin, while Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay are doubts.
Solskjaer said: “Paul is recovering well.
“He’s starting the treatment but it will still be a few weeks.
“He won’t be playing in February, that’s for sure, it’s still a few weeks before we see Paul definitely.
“Apart from that, we have a couple of doubtful ones, if they’ll be fit enough – Anthony and Scott.
“Donny and Edinson are injured unfortunately, muscle injuries, so they won’t travel.”
