“And today was our third day of training this week, we trained yesterday and today.
“Now, we have 25 players, apart from Paul Pogba, he’s the only one who’s still unavailable. The development from last week is positive.
“We will train again tomorrow and the players will get a day off on Christmas Day and then we have the last training session on Sunday and will face Newcastle.
“From what I could see today in training, everyone is in good shape, all the players have had their schedule to train at home.
