Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Paul Pogba is back in training. The Frenchman’s return was delayed due to an illness but he will now be working to return to full fitness before the end of the month.
There is also some good news on Diogo Dalot. The Portuguese has been out since October due to a groin problem, but he played in an Under 19s friendly against AC Milan last night as he steps up his comeback.
Marcos Rojo (muscular), Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah (both knee) remain out of contention for United’s trip to Watford tomorrow.
Manchester United’s Predicted XI To Face Watford:
De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Lingard, James, Martial, Rashford
The Hornets have five players out injured with Tom Cleverley (heel), Jose Holebas (ankle), Sebastian Prodl (knee), Danny Welbeck (hamstring) and Daryl Janmaat (knee) all unavailable.
However, Roberto Pereyra (groin) and Adam Masina (thigh) will be back in the squad this weekend after recovering from injury.
Watford’s Predicted XI:
Foster, Femenia, Cathcart, Kabasele, Masina, Hughes, Doucoure, Capoue, Deulofeu, Deeney, Pereyra
