Bastian Schweinsteiger has now completely overcome his injury problems and is working hard on his fitness ahead of the game against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

The German midfielder suffered a minor injury away on the pre-season tour but recovered in time to make his first start in the 2-0 loss versus Paris St-Germain.

Now that he is in Manchester, Schweinsteiger will be settling into his new home and surroundings which are somewhat removed from the Bavarian hills of Munich.

At this stage, it isn’t known whether Schweinsteiger will be fit enough to play Spurs but it’s good to see him in full training with the first-team.

Schweinsteiger is now one of United’s most experienced players and the importance of that can’t be underestimated because the team really lacked leaders on the pitch last year.

With so many midfield options, Louis van Gaal has a tough task on his hands making sure he keeps everybody happy with how much game time they are getting but as he is 31, you get the feeling Schweinsteiger will be brought in and out of the team when Van Gaal feels it is the right time.
