Triple injury boost for Man United ahead of Newcastle

Triple injury boost for Man United ahead of Newcastle”

Jamie Carragher believes the return of Paul Pogba from injury will be key to Manchester United.

Pogba has missed United's last 12 games in all competitions after suffering a hamstring strain during their Champions League group stage victory over FC Basel on September 12.

Other first-team players such as Chris Smalling have been given this week off to rest ahead of the busy Christmas period.

The Red Devils signed France global Pogba in a club-record £89m deal from Serie A giants Juventus in the 2016 summer transfer window.

ESPN say, though, both Carrick and Rojo are in contention too. The Argentine global last featured for the 20-time English champions in their last season's Europa League clash against Anderlecht in April.

Rojo has been on the sidelines since then and Mourinho earlier confirmed that he expects the defender to be back after the global break.

But Pogba has remained at Carrington in a bid to return in time to feature against Rafael Benitez's side at Old Trafford on Saturday week and was joined at training by Marcos Rojo and Michael Carrick.

Carrick has only featured for United once on September 20 in the Carabao Cup win over Burton Albion, but could be back by next week.

The Reds were poor during the recent defeat away to Huddersfield Town while Sunday's 1-0 loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge has left United sitting eight points adrift of rivals Manchester City at the top of the table after they beat Arsenal 3-1 at the Etihad at the weekend. They face the Tyneside club after the two weeks of global break on 18 October and the return of the trio will come as welcome boost for Mourinho.
