Mourinho assessing his squad for United v Swansea

Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Saturday with a 15:00 BST kick-off against Swansea City at Old Trafford.

With many of the Reds away on international duty, there was always a fear that some could return with injury or fitness worries following the batch of friendlies.

Unfortunately, Scott McTominay was forced to withdraw from the Scotland squad after making his debut against Costa Rica, thus missing the 1-0 victory in Hungary.

Sergio Romero was taken off during Argentina's 6-1 loss to Spain after being hurt when Diego Costa was in the process of scoring the opening goal for the hosts. One major positive from that game was Marcos Rojo playing a full game at the Wanda Metropolitano, which was his first appearance since the 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town on 3 February and suggests he should be available this Saturday. 

Ander Herrera is also fit again after the Spaniard declared he is ready to return after a lay-off, but Phil Jones was not called up to the England squad due to his injury.

Paul Pogba was left limping after a first-half challenge during France's 3-1 success in Russia, but later scored a wonderful free-kick and completed the 90 minutes.

Ashley Young also appeared to hurt his knee towards the end of England's 1-1 draw with Italy, only to shrug the knock off. Hopefully, both will be fine when reporting back to the Aon Training Complex.

United v Swansea
Juan Mata says

"A victory would be very important to show that we want to maintain our position in the table."

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is no longer an option after his contract was terminated so he could join MLS side LA Galaxy.

The in-form Swans are likely to be without Angel Rangel, Leroy Fer and Wilfried Bony, while Renato Sanches, the midfielder on loan from Bayern Munich, might be ready for a comeback.

Jose Mourinho will face the media on Friday to offer more news on his plans.
