Manchester United received a triple selection boost as three players returned to training ahead of this weekend’s encounter against Leicester.
Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly, and Jesse Lingard all reported back to Carrington on Wednesday as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team prepares to return to action after the international break.
During the break, Bailly played for the Ivory Coast in a 2-1 win over Malawi, while Lingard began for England in a 5-0 win over Andorra but missed this week’s 1-1 tie with Hungary.
Pogba was a standout for France in their Nations League final victory against Spain on Sunday, but teammate Raphael Varane will be sidelined ‘for a few weeks’ after sustaining an injury in the same game.
The trio’s comeback is a good boost for Solskjaer ahead of this weekend’s trip to the King Power Stadium, where Harry Maguire is also a doubt.
Maguire says he’ll be back in action soon, but the club captain also admitted he hasn’t trained with his teammates since sustaining a calf injury against Aston Villa last month.
United received another promising report as Ivorian winger Amad resumed his recuperation from a thigh injury that derailed his summer loan transfer.
Amad, 19, was set to join Dutch side Feyenoord on loan but saw his move cancelled after the training ground injury before transfer deadline day.
