Promising injury news for Manchester United


That list includes Pogba, Marcos Rojo, Marouane Fellaini and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with all but the latter of that quartet closing in on a return for the Newcastle game.

Pogba, 24, just missed out on a place in the Manchester United squad during their 1-0 loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

As long as there are no set-backs in his recovery, the newspaper says Pogba is in-line to be on the bench for Newcastle United's visit to Old Trafford after the worldwide break on November 18.

Carrick has made just one appearance so far this season after being struck down by a mystery virus that has been hard to shift but the midfielder could be set to make his return to action over the coming weeks. Pogba is not the only senior player training with the Red Devils' Under-23 side.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, it's fellow France global Anthony Martial.

The midfielder was exciting at the start of the season, linking up well with summer signing, Romelu Lukaku and looking sharp as the signing of Nemanja Matic has liberated him to go forward.

Pogba has been out since early September (missing 12 games) with a hamstring problem, while Rojo suffered a serious knee ligament injury at the end of last season and Carrick has recovered from a virus.

"Anthony is a big, big, big talent". In his 10 appearances, Martial has come on as a substitute in seven. He is still young and is going to improve. I am sure as he is very good and had a great pre-season.

Four goals and two assists in that time suggests Mourinho ought to start the winger more often, especially with Henrikh Mkhitaryan struggling for form.
