United host PSG at Old Trafford on Wednesday in a game that will have a huge bearing on who qualifies for the last 16.
And Solskjaer has been sweating on the fitness of Martial and Shaw after the duo missed United’s 3-2 win over Southampton.
The United boss confirmed he will be able to call on the French forward but will make a late decision on the full-back.
“Anthony got through the session and felt okay, so he’s available for selection,” Solskjaer told MUTV. “Luke is probably the biggest doubt but the rest of them are holding their hands up saying: ‘I’m ready’.
“Luke isn’t too far away so let’s see what we do with him for tomorrow. Then, of course, Phil [Jones] has been away for a long time but now we’re getting more and more players ready to participate in every game.”
