Manchester United’s preparations for the weekend’s match with Leicester City are gathering pace.

The Red Devils were boosted on Wednesday by the returns of Paul Pogba and Eric Bailly, who were pictured training at Carrington.

The club website reported that Jesse Lingard also made his return.

More players are also expected to return to training today (Thursday).

These could include Anthony Martial, Bruno Fernandes, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Luke Shaw.

 

Pogba was in great spirits on camera, and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looked very happy to have him back.

Bailly could have a major role in defence for the first time in the Premier League this season, amid injuries to Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof.

Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Donny van de Beek have been among the players training at Carrington throughout the break, alongside Nemanja Matic, Alex Telles, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Juan Mata.

Pogba is in particularly good spirits after leading France to victory in the UEFA Nations League.

Raphael Varane picked up an injury in the final, sadly, and he now faces a few weeks on the sidelines.

Young winger Amad was also pictured training as he steps up his recovery from injury.
