On Tuesday night, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer side will face Basaksehir at Old Trafford. 

Manchester United haven't been convincing this season, as they have been inconsistent.

Although, Manchester have lots of players who can fill in the position of Lingard. 

Solskjaer said: 'Jesse is still self-isolating because he's been in contact with a COVID positive. He'll be back soon.'Paul Pogba is able to return to the United side on Tuesday night after missing Saturday's win over West Brom due to a minor injury.

The French midfielder came back from international duty with a minor niggle but the Manchester United boss claims he is desperate for Pogba to come back.

Solskjaer added: 'I hope Paul is going to be available.

'He trained this morning, it's still uncomfortable and (there's) some pain, so we'll make a decision on that in the morning (Tuesday).'

It's also been reported that Luke Shaw and Phil Jones are still long-term absentees and will miss the game against Basaksehir.

While Paul Pogba who missed  Saturday's win over West Brom due to a minor injury is expected to be fit to play on Tuesday night. 

Solskjaer added: 'I hope Paul is going to be available.

'He trained this morning, it's still uncomfortable and (there's) some pain, so we'll make a decision on that in the morning (Tuesday).'
