Manchester United handed boost as Marcus Rojo returns to first-team training

August 25 12:58 2017

Manchester United’s manager Jose Mourinho has spoken about the team’s need for further players this transfer window and the club are monitoring the situations of several top players right now. Both players have been out of action since last season and manager, Jose Mourinho would be pleased to see both of them home out unscathed in a U-23 clash against Swansea. Of course, he meant that he wanted to see how his team handles adversity. Only games from this season will be factored before matchday five.

Cristiano Ronaldo has also been linked with a move back to the Premier League and the Mirror is reporting the Madrid player is unhappy with the Spanish side.

If the reports are accurate that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is making rapid progress in his return from a knee injury and is set to sign a new contract with club, United will have plenty of options in the forward areas. “It is just the start of the season”. The Toffees visit Old Trafford on the 17th September.

Mourinho’s many have swept aside West Ham and Swansea in both games, demonstrating the strength of their squad in the process, keeping two clean sheets.

Recent form in head-to-head games suggests United should have the upper hand though – they triumphed 4-1 in the corresponding fixture last season and then enjoyed a 3-0 win at the King Power Stadium.

“Whoever finishes above Manchester United wins the league”. They are not as tightly knit in the defence as their opponents for Saturday and have given away 5 goals in all competitions, while scoring 9.

By contrast, Leicester are a team of sharp extremes, delivering either really good or really bad results and performances. They register 63 wins against 28 draws and 33 losses.

The Colombian defender won the club’s player of the year award and he was on the wanted list of numerous clubs around Europe this summer. The Spaniard has been benched for the two league games so far but Mourinho may opt to bring the Spaniard back in to help cope with Leicester’s fast counter-attacking style.

With the two sides meeting in Saturday’s late kick off at Old Trafford, can Craig Shakepeare’s side build on victory last weekend and put a stop to United’s emphatic start?

Pogba and Matic are the favoured pair in midfield, so it’s in the wide positions that could prove most hard to fill for the United manager. “We want to be focused from game to game”. This view has been strongly denied by the manager, and past year during a press conference claimed that he had a list of 49 players that he had introduced to first team football. He wants to transfer to Roma but he is not shirking his duties.
