Report: Duo could return for Man Utd ahead of Spurs clash this weekend

Manchester United could receive an injury boost ahead of their meeting with Tottenham on Sunday with the potential returns of Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial. 

The French duo were both absent for the Red Devils’ humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday – a result which has piled the pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

Varane picked up a groin injury on international duty in France’s UEFA Nations League final clash against France earlier this month, while Martial also picked up a knock while with Les Blues.

However, early team news hints the pair could make a return for United this weekend against Tottenham, after Solskjaer revealed they are both pushing for an early comeback. 

One confirmed absentee for the visitors, though, will be Paul Pogba, who will serve the first of his three-match suspension after receiving a straight red card against Liverpool. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

The possible return of Varane is not the best news for Spurs really, but there is not much they can do about that but to focus on their own issues first.

Spurs have to bounce back from a timid display against West Ham, in which they were expected to build on a positive result against Newcastle.
