It comes after SunSport revealed stopper De Gea could miss two months out with a thigh problem.

The Old Trafford No1 hobbled out of Spain's Euro 2020 qualifier in Sweden last night.

Solskjaer told Sky Sports: "David needs a scan, I think he'll be out.

"It certainly looked like it anyway judging on last night so it's just one of those things.

"Paul had an injury, he came back, he worked really hard.

"He came back and played a couple of games, maybe played through the pain barrier.

"He had a scan after the Arsenal game and maybe needed a few weeks' rest in a boot so hopefully he won't be too long, but he won't make this game, no."

De Gea, 28, was under no pressure when he fell to the floor after clearing a back pass in the 59th minute.

The former Atletico keeper got back to his feet by himself but limped off the field in clear discomfort after clutching the inside of his thigh.

However, the 26-year-old has not beaten the race after also sitting out the international break.
