Double injury boost for Man United ahead of busy two-week period

Manchester United have received a double injury boost ahead of a busy two-week period where they will play five games. 

The Red Devils will start with this Sunday's Premier League clash away to West Ham United, before facing the Hammers again in midweek in the EFL Cup. 

Aston Villa then visit M16 the following Saturday, before a key Champions League clash against Villarreal, followed by a league fixture against Everton.

Ahead of the busy run, when coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will need a fully-fit squad, the team has received a shot in the arm with news that Scott McTominay and Alex Telles have returned to full training. 

McTominay featured in United's two opening fixtures against Leeds and Southampton but picked a minor injury that required surgery. 

Telles, meanwhile, has been out since last featuring against Derby in a pre-season match back in July.

“Scott and Alex have joined in training this morning fully. They look good,” Solskjaer told club media on Thursday.

“Of course we need to have them go through a few sessions before we can consider if they’re going to be available.”

United will also have Edinson Cavani fit for Wednesday's EFL clash against David Moyes' side.
