Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho doesn’t expect any of his six injured players, including Sergio Romero, Antonio Valencia, Diogo Dalot, Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic, who missed the opening win over Leicester City to return against Brighton and Hove Albion this weekend.
“I think we will have the same players [as against Leicester],” Mourinho said. “I think the injured players aren’t going to be back for Brighton. What we have is Paul [Pogba] with nine days' training, [Marcus] Rashford with 11 days' training, [Marouane] Fellaini with nine days' training and, of course, they will be in a better condition.
“Normally, these boys that [against Leicester] were in a difficult situation will be ready to give a bit more [against Brighton] – more [Romelu] Lukaku, more Rashford, probably Lingard coming back, more Fellaini. I think normally we’re going to have more.”
