Manchester United return to Premier League action on Saturday with a 15:00 BST kick-off against Swansea City at Old Trafford.

With many of the Reds away on international duty, there is always the fear that some could return with injury or fitness worries, following the batch of friendly matches.

Scott McTominay was forced to withdraw from the Scotland squad after making his debut against Costa Rica, thus missing the 1-0 victory in Hungary. Sergio Romero was taken off during Argentina’s 6-1 loss to Spain after being hurt when Diego Costa was in the process of scoring the opening goal for the hosts.

Marcos Rojo played the full game at the Wanda Metropolitano, his first appearance since the 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town on 3 February, suggesting he should be available for the weekend. Ander Herrera is also fit again after declaring he is ready to return after a lay-off, but Phil Jones was not called up to the England squad due to his injury.

Paul Pogba was left limping after a first-half challenge during France’s 3-1 success in Russia but later scored a wonderful free-kick and completed the 90 minutes. Ashley Young also appeared to hurt his knee towards the end of England’s 1-1 draw with Italy, only to shrug the knock off. Hopefully, both will be fine when reporting back to the Aon Training Complex.

Of course, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is no longer an option…
