Manchester United Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could welcome back key injured players after the winter break ahead of the match vs Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on February 17, MySportDab reports.
United currently have five players in the treatment room ahead of the squad’s training camp in Spain.
Solskjaer’s men jetted out to Marbella on Saturday to get bettet after a hectic fixture schedule across December and January.
The camp will prepare the stars for a tough end to the season as United challenge for top four spot, the FA Cup and Europa League.
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping to have a fully-fit squad at his disposal but is currently without the injured Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba, Axel Tuanzebe and Timothy Fosu-Mensah.
So, how many of those players could be back following the winter break?
Rashford did sustain a double stress fracture in his lower back Vs Wolves on January 15, and is also facing a floating bone problem in his ankle.
Solskjaer confirmed four days later that the striker would be out for at least six weeks for his back to heal before rehabilitation time.
“He won’t be available until after the mid-season break,” the Norwegian coach said.
Pogba did undergo ankle surgery last month after a recurring problem in the area which has restricted him to eight appearances all season.
The Frenchman will not join the squad’s trip to Marbella, instead staying in Manchester to get better.
Solskjaer has revealed the midfielder should be available in February but still needs more time to regain full match fitness.
Pogba will not be rushed again like he was earlier in the season and could make the squad to face Chelsea after the winter break.
McTominay suffered a knee ligament damage in United’s Boxing Day win against Newcastle, sidelining for a long while.
However, he has joined up with the rest of the squad across the Bay of Biscay to continue his recovery.
The 23-year-old was one of Solskjaer’s most trusted midfielders before the injury and will also not be rushed back.
He is expected to return slightly earlier than Pogba and may be in the matchday squad against Chelsea.
