United in good shape for Irons


ver PayetManchester United boss Jose Mourinho has only¬†Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Ashley Young unavailable for Sunday’s game at Old Trafford.

He told MUTV: “Everyone is available except the injuries that everybody knows, so the injuries that come from the previous season with surgeries.

“[We have] one more reason to be happy because, in this pre-season, we didn’t lose any player. Every one of the 22, plus the goalkeepers, that started the pre-season is ready for Premier League match one.”

Centre-backs Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are available again after sitting out the Super Cup defeat against Real madrid  through their UEFA suspension.

Summer signings Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic are also potentially in line to make their Premier League debuts for United..
