Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms double injury boost for Manchester United

Manchester United are back in action on Saturday as they make the trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, a ground they are unbeaten in since it opened in 2019.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have endured a difficult start to the season, winning just 14 points from their first nine Premier League fixtures. Their current winless run, which was extended to four league games after last weekend’s embarrassing defeat to Liverpool, halted United’s promising form in August and September.

Marquee signing Raphael Varane has enjoyed an impressive start to life at Old Trafford but has missed the last three games through injury – the 28-year-old could, however, make his return this weekend as Solskjaer has confirmed he is one of two players to return from the sidelines.

Varane’s French compatriot Anthony Martial, who scored in his last appearance for the club against Everton, is also back after missing out against Liverpool.

“Of course Paul is suspended but, apart from that, it’s a fully fit squad,” Solskjaer is quoted as saying by the official Manchester United website.

“Which is a very strange position to be in, to have 25 outfielders and five keepers training. Thirty men training this week, all fit.”
