Manchester United have received a timely injury boost with Marcos Rojo in contention for Sunday’s Premier League meeting versus Burnley.
The Argentine has not featured for United since the previous campaign and this has come about from an injury sustained with his nation during the summer World Cup.
However, he has now reported to training ahead of the league outing at Burnley and Mourinho could be tempted to deploy him amid the defensive concerns through the first three matches.

Speaking after the Spurs defeat, Mourinho confirmed that Chris Smalling would most certainly keep his position for the next game, and Rojo may potentially be paired alongside the Englishman.
Rojo was one of Mourinho’s regulars during his first season in charge of the club but the Argentine could not complete the season unscathed after suffering a rather serious knee injury.
Since then, Rojo has largely been a squad player under the Portuguese’s management but he could reclaim a starting spot in a must-win game versus Burnley with other centre-backs failing to impress.
Manchester United have experienced their worst start to a Premier League season since 1992/93 after picking up just three points from their opening three games of the campaign.
