Manchester United will only be without Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe this weekend, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirming that the rest of his squad is available for the visit of Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Jones and Tuanzebe both missed the end of last season and remain out, although neither would be likely to be in the first team anyway.
The other fitness concerns were over Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba, but Solskjaer says both are fit, although whether they are fully match fit is still in question.
‘Phil Jones is still out,’ said Solskjaer. ‘Axel is not 100 per cent back with us yet, but he’s on the grass running, which is a positive.
‘Apart from that, we don’t have any serious injuries, but, as we’ve said, the players are at different stages of their training programmes.
‘Mentally, I think everyone’s ready. Physically, they’re at a different stage, some of them have played more games than others.
‘So we’ll have to be clever and good about when to play players because we know this period now, until the first international, is a hugely important one.
Solskjaer could well hand Donny van de Beek his United debut against the Eagles and talked up a midfield trio of Van de Beek, Pogba and Bruno Fernandes all being able to play together when necessary.
‘Donny’s settled in really well,’ Solskjaer continued. ‘He’s a smashing boy, great personality coming in with loads of energy and a big smile every day and he played well against Aston Villa, so you’re likely to see him.
‘But, of course, I’m not going to name the team here today. I’ll have to do that to the boys after training.
‘Of course [Van de Beek, Fernandes and Pogba] can start together, but you’ve got Scott McTominay, Fred and Nemanja Matic in midfield as well, so it’s not just about 11 players or three players in a squad. I’m sure we’ll see them together.
‘I’m not gonna tell you who it is tomorrow but Luke [Shaw] and Paul are available for selection for how long we need them.’
