Solskjaer said: "He'll probably get some minutes against Rochdale. But we definitely think he's ready for Arsenal."

Also returning is 17-year-old striker Mason Greenwood, fresh from his match-winning goal against Astana in the Europa League on Thursday.

Greenwood missed the 2-0 defeat to West Ham on Sunday due to tonsillitis and will be United's only recognised striker in the squad after Marcus Rashford came off injured at the London Stadium.

The club have confirmed Rashford will be unavailable for selection against Rochdale, but have said it is unknown how serious the groin injury is.

Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial will both miss Wednesday's match, as the left-back and forward continue their recovery, while Eric Bailly remains sidelined with his long-term knee problem.

Manchester United leap to the defence of Paul Pogba amid rumours the star is demanding a pay rise .
United are angered at reports that Pogba is asking for £600k per week to stay and fear the French midfielder is being scapegoated for a modest start to the season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Pogba, who was keen on joining Real Madrid last summer, has played only twice since August because of a recurring ankle problem and is a doubt for Sunday's game at Newcastle.
