Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident the remaining seven injured Manchester United players will be fit after the international break.

The Red Devils welcomed back Nemanja Matic and Anthony Martial from muscular injuries in their EPL defeat at Arsenal, where Matic started and Martial emerged off the bench in the 70th minute.

Er Herrera returned to training on the eve of the Gunners fixture but was not deemed fit enough to make the provisional squad. Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard also took part in United's Friday session at Carrington but may not feature until later in the month.

Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian, Phil Jones and Alexis Sanchez are not fit enough to participate with teammates but Man Utd do not play in the Premier League again until they host Watford on March 30.

Solskjaer's side travel to Wolves for their FA Cup quarter-final on Saturday but the March internationals commence the week beginning the 18th and Solskjaer is optimistic United will have a fully fit squad for the visit of Watford.

When asked whether competing on three fronts would force him to prioritise competitions, Solskjaer replied: “No, we don't have to choose with injuries we've had lately.

“That's given us a great chance to give players playing time and game-time and they're coming back maybe for Wolves but after the international break we've got a full squad fit and the ones who've come in when the regulars have been injured have done really well, so we'll be ready for that.”
