A United player player returns to training ahead of Southampton clash

Manchester United welcome Southampton to Old Trafford on Saturday, looking to get back to winning ways.

The Reds face a Saints side that pulled off a superb, and fully deserved, 3-2 win at Tottenham on Wednesday, in the game that kicks off the Premier League weekend.

Our training pictures from Carrington show some good news with Alex Telles back among the squad after being forced to isolate due to COVID-19.

The left-back’s fellow Brazil international Fred, however, is still unavailable after also testing positive for the virus.

Eric Bailly is still missing, after returning from Africa Cup of Nations duty with a swollen ankle, while interim manager Ralf Rangnick will be deciding whether to recall Cristiano Ronaldo, after our leading scorer started the draw at Burnley on the bench.

The boss made two changes to his line-up at Turf Moor, with David De Gea and Edinson Cavani drafted into the side, and Jesse Lingard came off the bench for his first action since the 2-2 draw at Aston Villa. Scott McTominay appeared to sustain a heavy knock but will hopefully be available for the 12:30 GMT kick-off.
