‘Hope He’s Completely Healed’ ‘LETS GO, WE NEED HIM’ United Fans React As Romano Issues Positive Injury Update

Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana is back in full training, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The 27-year-old picked up a pelvis injury whilst on international duty with Cameroon. He was forced off in the second half of the 3-0 win over Mauritius last Friday but Romano says he should be in contention to face Everton this weekend:

Supporters on X are delighted that Onana is back available ahead of a busy festive schedule:

Onana’s form has improved in recent weeks

It is fair to say that the Cameroon international struggled following his Β£47.5m move from Inter Milan in the summer, making a number of high-profile mistakes.

However, the penalty save against FC Copenhagen at home in the Champions League last month is believed to have helped Onana regain some of his confidence. United’s no.1 has looked more assured in subsequent games, although he still has plenty to prove.

The United shot-stopper is making a difference

While Onana is clearly still letting in goals that other keepers would keep out, it is important to note that, statistically, he is currently up there with the best No.1s in the English top flight.

He is outperforming his xG conceded by 1.8, meaning he has let in nearly 2 goals fewer than he should have done. His 76.7% save ratio is also the third-best in the Premier League, behind only Liverpool’s Alisson Becker and Tottenham’s Guglielmo Vicario.
