Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wasn't in the mood to divulge further information on three Manchester United injuries after their FA Cup win over Watford.

The United boss was without Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba for the clash with the Championship side at Old Trafford, which United won 1-0 courtesy of a fifth minute header from Scott McTominay.

Solskjaer made nine changes for the game, but was forced to call on captain Harry Maguire shortly before half-time after defender Eric Bailly went down with a head injury following a collision with his own goalkeeper, Dean Henderson.

United go to Burnley in the Premier League on Tuesday, when a point will take them top of the Premier League before next weekend's visit to the champions and current leaders Liverpool.

With that in mind, Solskjaer was less than forthcoming when asked about the absent trio after Watford win, simply saying "They're injured" when questioned about their status.

The United boss did expand on the blow suffered by injury-prone defender Bailly, but insisted that he didn't think the Ivorian was too badly hurt.

"He got a good whack," he said.

"I don't think it's concussion, hopefully a muscle injury and we'll have to check it tomorrow. Fingers crossed he won't be out for too long."

Bailly would later seemingly confirm his manager's diagnosis when he tweeted: "Good job by the team to advance in the FA Cup. I am OK, it was just a knock."

The likes of Maguire, David de Gea, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Fred, Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford – all of whom were on a star-studded bench against Watford – are expected to come back into the team at Burnley.
