7 MU players will return after injury for the match against Tottenham

MU will meet Tottenham in the Premier League opening match after the season returns with the reception of 7 players fully recovered from injury.

After more than 3 months of suspension, MU will meet Tottenham on June 19. When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his team last played in a 5- win against LASK Linz in the Europa League, they didn’t have 7 players because of injury.

Now, Solskjaer coach confirms his squad is completely complete with every player who is fit to play against Tottenham. Below is a list of players who have been absent from Austria.

Marcus Rashford

The England striker has not played since the FA Cup third round match against Wolves in January due to a back injury. 
Rashford was suspected of resting the rest of the season, but the surprise holiday gave him time to speed up recovery and will make it to the pitch in the next match.

Paul Pogba

Pogba struggled with an ankle injury throughout the season, making him only eight appearances in all competitions.
The French midfielder has been participating in the first-team training for some time and MU fans are excited about the prospect of him joining Bruno Fernandes.

Diogo Dalot

Dalot has only played 10 matches this season due to a muscle injury. He returned to the game against Liverpool in February but was not included in three Premier League matches before the season was suspended.

Anthony Martial

Martial was forced to sit out in the Europa League after suffering pain in the Manchester derby on March 8. The injury is not serious, so he will be ready to return to Tottenham.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Wan-Bissaka did not accompany the team to Austria due to back pain and will now be fit for the match against Tottenham.

Jesse Lingard

Lingard is another player who missed the match against LASK due to an injury but is looking forward to playing.

Lee Grant

Grant underwent surgery at the beginning of the year. The veteran goalkeeper has practiced in recent weeks but did not expect to play in front of Spurs.

Tottenham interrupted the not-winning series at Premier League

After four draws and losses, Tottenham defeated Norwich 2-1 in the 24 Premier League round on January 23.

Great pressure was on coach Jose Mourinho when Tottenham did not win in the last four Premier League matches, including the last three without scoring.

Prior to their match against Norwich, the last time they conceded an opponent from a live ball in the Premier League was on December 26, in a 2-1 win against Brighton. After six hours and 18 minutes, Tottenham finally scored from a combined phase in the open situation.

Mourinho launched the squad with many surprises. He said Hugo Lloris would not return before February, but the French goalkeeper took the lead in place of Paulo Gazzaniga – who had just pushed the penalty and helped Tottenham keep a clean sheet against Watford.

Ryan Sessegnon returned to his left-back position after two games in the Premier League, while Christian Eriksen was on the bench even though Mourinho said in a pre-match press conference that the Danish midfielder would start.

Sun newspaper revealed the Tottenham player was fed up with Mourinho’s long play. But with Harry Kane taking a long break due to injury, Tottenham was forced to play short when Lucas Moura kicked, right on the trio of Son, Alli and Lamela. Of these, Erik Lamela is least cared for by Norwich defenders. The Argentine midfielder had two chances in the first 10 minutes, but couldn’t score.

Even when leading 0-1 after the first half, Norwich did not tremble. Right-back Max Aarons, one of the players Mourinho wanted to bring back to Tottenham, brought the penalty in the 68th minute. The slow spin showed that the impact from Sessegnon was not large enough, but VAR still concluded that there was a penalty. From a distance of 11 meters, Pukki defeated Lloris to score the 12th goal this season.

The 2-1 victory was inconclusive, but it was enough to reduce the pressure on Jose Mourinho in the absence of Willian Jose during Kane’s injury. Tottenham rose to sixth, with the same 34 points as Man Utd but less than the sub-index. They are six points away from Chelsea’s fourth place. Norwich stomped at the bottom of the table with 17 points, six points above the next team.
