Fleck was withdrawn during the opening stages of the game, after appearing to hurt his right leg. Later, after John Lundstram had scored what proved to be the match-winner, Robinson could be seen holding the back of a thigh.

The two will be assessed by United's medical staff before a decision is taken on their involvement against Brendan Rodgers' side.

Although their replacements Luke Freeman and Oli McBurnie both impressed, Chris Wilder will be keen to have a full strength squad available for the meeting with a City team which held Chelsea to a draw earlier today. Freeman, making his home debut following a summer move from Queens Park Rangers, was instrumental in the move which saw Lundstram break the deadlock early in the second-half while McBurnie, United's record transfer signing, was singled out for praise by Wilder afterwards.
