United also have been Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw because Augusts home defeat.
Solskjaer says he is unlikely to attract any of United players back in the fold at St James Park on Sunday as he looks ahead to Liverpools looming visit after the break.
Asked when he expects everyone to return to fitness by Sunday, Solskjaer said:Likely not.
There is an worldwide break also. It might be time for individuals to provide them 10-14 days extra to be prepared for Liverpool.
Jesse Lingard, who had been chased from the England squad of Gareth Southgate, hobbled off in the Cars Jeans Arena.
Solskjaer said after the match it was only a tweak and is optimisticits not too bad.
United havent won an away match since their Champions League victory over Paris Saint-Germain in March – that is 10 matches on the street without a triumph.
Solskjaer will be expecting their fortunes from Old Trafford grow radically with five off fixtures scheduled in the next month. In that time, their only home match is against league leaders Liverpool.
We are a team that may be set up to play away from home, added Solskjaer.
Sometimes you are able to play the counter. Against Alkmaar we didnt get the counter-attacks as we wanted to since astroturf onto a pitch like that its you strike, we strike – its handball.
Charlie Nicholas: Steve Bruce goes against his old group – its an intriguing one. The final time Newcastle were at home, they were dreadful. You need to give the fans something in your home, they are an wonderful bunch of fans. Manchester United are still sitting with just 2 wins in seven 10th, trying to find things in home. Solskjaer has his strategy for the club and the childhood although there is a good deal of demands set up. His vision will take time. One week, everybody will be surprised by Newcastle, and this could be this week. If they are competitive and hit them, they can shock Manchester United.
