United team news to face Tottenham
Cristiano Ronaldo is set to return for Manchester United in their Premier League fixture with Tottenham on Saturday.
Ronaldo missed the 4-1 defeat to Manchester City last week with a hip flexor injury but resumed full training on Thursday.
Luke Shaw is still unavailable as he is still testing positive for Covid-19 and Scott McTominay is a doubt with a calf problem. Edinson Cavani is also set to return after missing the last six games with a groin problem.
“He resumed for training yesterday,” Ralf Rangnick said of Ronaldo. “He trained the whole training session and I expect him to train today as well. He trained well, like the rest of the group. I would’ve thought he was available tomorrow.
“Luke Shaw will still miss out. Until yesterday, he was still testing positive for Covid. Scotty is a question mark, he had some problems with his calf, so we have to wait and see until after training. Right now it’s more likely he will not be available because if we risk him tomorrow he will more likely be out for the game on Tuesday (against Atletico Madrid).
“We are fully aware about the importance of tomorrow’s game and the game on Tuesday, the most important game is the game tomorrow against Tottenham, we have to win that game, we had a good week of training, the players are fully aware about the importance of the game, the focus was there, the togetherness was there in the training sessions.”
