Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed the club has scrapped plans for a warm weather training camp in the Gulf region as a result of growing Middle East tensions owing to the recent killing of Iran's top general by the United States.

The England worldwide was taken out of the pitch after failing to overcome a nagging knock during the Red Devils 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in their FA Cup third-round replay.

Liverpool host Manchester United on Sunday at Anfield - and some of the club's supporters on Twitter have suggested that Takumi Minamino should get his Premier League debut. Let's test him for Sunday and see how he goes. He couldn't run. He struggled a little bit with his back and got another knock.

But, with the game against Liverpool just days away, Solskjaer could also start Diogo Dalot, who was a late substitute at Molineux.

Juan Mata was the victor of the game against the wolves when United moved into the fourth round of the FA Cup, and - apart from Rashford's strike - Solskjaer was satisfied with the night work.

As such, talkSPORT journalist Phil Brown claims that United have held secret discussions with Pochettino about taking over at the end of the season.

Only United have taken points off Liverpool this season, drawing 1-1 at Old Trafford in October when Rashford scored.

Solskjaer acknowledged that United had lost its form and structure and conveyed a message to Mata when he felt that his players "played more than they should" in a crucial period before the break.

"It is not an England thing, this is about making sure he is ready for Manchester United over the next few years and not burning him out too often".

However, he took comfort from the overall performance, adding: "It was good I think we performed well in both halves".

"It's here, but I just think when you bring something like VAR in, to then change a rule like the handball rule and make it so minute is asking for trouble". "For me, with the young (Paul) Scholes and (Ryan) Giggs, the more games they played, the better they became".

United have 16 Premier League matches remaining in which to chase a spot in the top four.

"If we get something we can tell you about we will, but we've got no news now".
