Despite the highly anticipated arrival of Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains short in midfield with Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay out injured, but both are set to return this month-end.
The Red Devils are currently enjoying their winter break which will see them have another 10 days off before they take on Chelsea on February 17, and Pogba could return.
According to Premier Injuries, the Frenchman is almost ready to feature having undergone surgery on his ankle in January.
McTominay will be on the sidelines for little longer following the knee injury he suffered, with his return scheduled for the visit of Watford on February 23.
The Norwegian boss has been open about how recent injury worries have impacted United’s season, giving an update last week.
Here’s what Solskjaer had to say: ”It’s hard to put timescales on long-term injuries, because they also need the training before they’re injury-free and they need to be match fit, or fitter, to be able to play.
“Paul has had his cast off and Scott’s took his braces off, so at least now they can start doing work on the grass soon.”
