Manchester United’s players welcomed Eric Bailly back to full training ahead of tonight’s fixture with Burnley.

Even so it is uncertain if he will be back into the line up tonight against Burnley.

United have two matches against Liverpool after this in the league and cup and have to be cautious with Bailly’s fitness.

Victor Lindelof is also dealing with an injury ahead of the game against Burnley and Bailly could just be a back-up for Axel Tuanzebe who completed all 90 minutes against Watford.

United also have the complication of Harry Maguire being just one yellow card away from a one game suspension.

With all of this in mind, United continue to call on Teden Mengi as an option to train with the first team. The youngster has been in and around the squad for most of this season.

It was also good to see Edinson Cavani with the team as he plans for his return.

Cavani’s three game ban is now over and he could start against Burnley this evening to warm up for the games against Liverpool.

United face Burnley at 8pm tonight at Turf Moor knowing a draw or a win will take the team to the top of the Premier League table.
