Manchester United receive double injury boost for Chelsea trip: Reports

Manchester United could bank on the services of first-team duo Marouane Fellaini and Marcos Rojo when they take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.

Fellaini sustained a knee sprain on international duty with Belgium in early October, but he appears to have recovered in time for the Blues clash. Meanwhile, Rojo was also part of the United’s travelling squad, although his chances of starting remain bleak having only recently recovered from a long-term knee problem.

According to The Sun, Fellaini and Rojo were part of the United squad which boarded the train at the Stockport Station earlier on Saturday. However, there was a notable absentee in Paul Pogba, who could make his way to west London on his own.

Pogba returned to full training with United earlier in the week, and there had been a suggestion, via The Sun, that he could at least make the bench for the much-anticipated game in the English capital.

Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic have been the preferred choice in United’s midfield over the past month, but Fellaini’s availability could see the former make way – as the Belgian offers more from set-pieces with his physique and excellent heading ability.
