Star could return for Man United to face Watford

Rojo De Gea

After back to back defeats against Brighton and Tottenham in the Premier League, Manchester United bounced back to earn all three points vs Burnley away from home.

Next up, the Red Devils will collide against high flying Watford, who are one of the three teams to have won all four PL fixtures so far.

The Hornets defeated Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs at home in the last fixture and they could seriously trouble an inconsistent United side as well.

As far as Jose Mourinho’s team news is concerned, at the moment, two center halves in the form of Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are out injured.

The England international suffered a hamstring injury against Spurs and did not feature vs Burnley last weekend. As per PhysioRoom, there is no return date mentioned.

On the other hand, as per the provided PhysioRoom link, the Argentine international could recover and return from his injury to face Watford on 15th September.

Last season, Rojo was mainly on the treatment table and only started eight times in the league. He did feature in three games for the national side at the World Cup 2018.

  1. If Rojo has overcome his knee injury, he’d be great in a back 3 against a physical forward. At the moment, none of the CBs are inspiring confidence, so unlrsd a Varane or Godin turns up, a back 3 with Bailly & Lindelof, rotating Smalling & Rojo (against pace or strength respectively) provides the basis for an attacking formation, having catered for security at the back.
