Double Injury Boost For Man Utd But 4 Other Players Could Miss Swansea Clash
Manchester United have been handed a double injury boost ahead of this weekend’s clash with Swansea but four other players are set to miss out
Manchester United have been handed a double injury boost ahead of this weekend’s clash with Swansea but four other players are set to miss out, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Ashley Young was initially considered a doubt for the visit of the Swans after suffering a knee injury during the latter stages of England’s 1-1 draw with Italy at Wembley on Tuesday night.
The United full-back was able to complete the fully ninety minutes after being given treatment by the England medical team following the collision with Lorenzo Insigne in the 83rd minute.
The MEN are now reporting that while Young’s knee was painful after the game, the 32-year-old is confident he’ll be passed fit to start at left-back against Swansea at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
In a double boost for Jose Mourinho’s side, Ander Herrera has also declared himself fit and available for selection after recovering from a hamstring injury that’s hampered him in recent weeks.
However, Mourinho could still be without four players for the visit of Swansea this weekend as Phil Jones, Sergio Romero, Scott McTominay and Daley Blind are all doubts.
Jones hasn’t been seen for over two months due to a hamstring injury while Blind has also been out since January with an ankle problem and neither player is expected to return on Saturday.
McTominay was forced to pull out of the Scotland squad ahead of their 1-0 win over Hungary after picking up an ankle injury during his debut appearance against Costa Rica last week.

Romero was substituted midway through the first half of Argentina’s humiliating 6-1 defeat to Spain after suffering a knee injury while Diego Costa scored the opening goal in the 22nd minute.
Both players will be further assessed by United’s medical team at their Carrington training ground but they are considered as major doubts for the Swansea game this weekend.
United head in to the game sitting second in the Premier League table but they could find themselves in third spot come kick off if Liverpool beat Crystal Palace so Mourinho will be desperate to pick up all three points against Swansea.
