Paul Pogba and Manchester United stars declare they are ready for return
After three months of waiting, Manchester United’s players are counting down the final 24 hours before a return to action.
United have a nearly fully fit squad, barring injuries to Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe, heading into a big match away at Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham on Friday night.
After another busy training session at Carrington, a handful of United’s players have been posting on social media ahead of tomorrow’s game.
Among them is midfield star Paul Pogba, who reached back to the phrase used when he re-signed for United, with a simple message declaring ‘Pogback’.
Pogba is not guaranteed to start the game; he has not done so for United in a competitive match since September.
But it is near enough guaranteed that he will play some role against Spurs, with both teams entitled to use five substitutes.
Club captain Harry Maguire and fellow defenders Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot all also posted messages.
United are clearly raring to go, although of course Tottenham will be ready to put up a fight and defend their home advantage.
There is a lot at stake, with Spurs looking to haul themselves back into the top four race and move to within one point of us.
It really does appear that United’s players have a strong bond at present and have been enjoying their training sessions together, and that the team is full of confidence.
Let’s hope this time tomorrow we are celebrating a victory, and see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rack up a second successive win over former boss Mourinho.
