Manchester United handed double injury boost ahead of Watford fixtrue

Manchester United will be playing Watford this Sunday in the Premier League and Jose Mourinho will want to field a strong team in hopes of ending the club’s loss streak.

The Portuguese boss has been handed with a double injury boost ahead of the clash with Eric Bailly and Luke Shaw travelling with the rest of the team.

There were big injury concerns surrounding both players, but they are now in contention to start at Vicarage Road.

Shaw suffered a minor hamstring problem during the 2-1 defeat to Manchester City, while Eric Bailly was involved in a big collision during the 1-0 Feyenoord defeat.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan on the other hand has been left out with an injury, he seems to have aggravated his problem after he was rushed back for the Manchester derby.

Phil Jones, a perpetual presence in the recovery room will be missing Sunday’s clash.

Jesse Lingard is also a doubt after he was substituted at half-time during the defeat to City, while Matteo Darmian has been left out so Antonio Valencia can re-claim his place on the side.

The full squad travelling to Watford: De Gea, Johnstone, Romero, Blind, Smalling, Young, Rooney, Rashford, Shaw, Carrick, Pogba, Schneiderlin, Valencia, Martial, Depay, Fellaini, Ibrahimovic, Mata, Herrera, Rojo.
