Marcus Rashford, Ander Herrera and Eric Bailly set to recover in time to face Tottenham Hostpur

by Leo Nieboer

Marcus Rashford, Ander Herrera and Eric Bailly have all recovered in time to face Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday.

It was claimed following Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Swansea on Tuesday that both Rashford and Herrera would be closely monitored after picking up minor knocks in Wales.

Bailly, on the other hand, has been sidelined with a groin problem ever since the international break.

But the aforementioned trio look set to be in contention to face Mauricio Pochettino’s squad after they trained with the first team squad on Thursday morning.

Man United’s recent episode of inertia stems largely from the absence of Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini, and their absence will be felt in what promises to be a fast, physical encounter.

But we cannot underestimate the importance of having Mourinho’s first choice centre-back pairing back together following the shaky defensive display seen against Huddersfield Town last weekend.

The prospect of Harry Kane going up against Victor Lindelof was enough to bring most United fans to tears but the complexion feels entirely different, with Bailly and Phil Jonesdeclared fit to start on Saturday by Mourinho –  set to feature together for the first time since they kept a clean sheet against Southampton last month, whilst Kane has been recently revealed as an injury doubt after not being included in the side that lost 3-2 to West Ham United.
