Solskjaer provides Raphael Varane injury update ahead of Manchester derby

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has offered an injury update on Raphael Varane after Manchester United’s Champions League clash with Atalanta.

The French defender started in a back-three alongside Harry Maguire and Eric Bailly but hobbled off shortly before half-time.

Varane, who has only just returned from an injury lay-off, headed straight down the tunnel as is not a doubt for Saturday’s Manchester derby at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer said: ‘He felt his hamstring. So of course you can’t take any risks, unfortunately.

‘Rafa has been such a calming influence when he’s on the pitch. We lost him but that’s football.’
