Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named his team as Manchester United seek to earn their first home league win of the season against West Brom this evening.
Early indications suggested Paul Pogba was not with the team as they reported for travel; Pogba has been notable for his high-profile absences in recent games.
Another name who has not played as often as anyone would have liked is Alex Telles, who tested positive for COVID after a promising debut against Paris. Telles, however, is needed more than ever after the injury to Luke Shaw which is likely to keep him out for sometime.
“Of course, we have the test results coming back after the normal tests we have to do before the Premier League games,” Ole told ManUtd.com. “All the tests from the internationals were negative, which is good.”
“Alex Telles travelled and wanted to play but then I think there was a mix-up with the tests – positive/negative and there was loads of talk about if he was going or not, first of all to the first game and then to second game. He’s come back and has been training for a few days and is looking good.”
“Eric [Bailly] and Marcos [Rojo] are back training with us. Jesse [Lingard], Phil [Jones] and Luke are not on the grass yet. Mason is fitter. He had eight or nine days away from us which is long time. He’s been training hard this week in the gym and on the grass. He’ll be back soon.”
Harry Maguire is back after a successful spell away with England. Solskjaer will be hoping for a positive result and performance to kickstart the winter period on a positive note.
The game kicks off at 8pm and is live in the UK on BT Sport.
