Anthony Martial will miss Manchester United's Europa League last-16 first-leg tie against LASK.
The Frenchman is also a doubt for Sunday's Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur, after picking up an injury during the Manchester derby.
“Anthony hurt himself when he slid into the post,” said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at his pre-match press conference at the Linzer Stadion in Austria.
“So he's not ready for this game. Hopefully, he can be ready for Sunday but I'm not sure. He's struggling a little bit.”
Paul Pogba hasn't travelled to Austria either, but Ole provided some good news as the 27-year-old continues his recovery from surgery in January.
“Paul is getting closer, yes,” explained the boss. “But, today, he wasn't with the team and has not trained with the team yet. Hopefully, by next week, he will be ready.”
Marcus Rashford remains a long-term absentee for the Reds, after he suffered a stress fracture to his back during the 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in January’s Emirates FA Cup third-round replay.
Solskjaer admits that he’s not sure when the 22-year-old will be fit to return, but hopes he will feature before the end of the current campaign.
"As any player, he wants to be fit as quick as possible and play as soon as possible," Ole said prior to the Derby FA Cup tie. "If that means playing in April, if he’ll be fit for us towards the end of the season, fantastic. If it takes longer, it takes longer.
"We just have to be sensible with it because we’re going to have Marcus playing here for many, many years.
"The scans were encouraging. He’s now working in the gym and in the pool and he’s moving around better he’s in and around the place. It’s like how long is a piece of rope? It’s difficult."
Goalkeeper Lee Grant will be missing until the spring after undergoing an operation.
"Lee unfortunately has had an injury, so he will require surgery, so he will be out for two or three months, so hopefully he'll get back before the end of the season.”
There are currently no suspensions for the Manchester United first team.
