    Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Antonio Valencia, Nemanja Matic, and Jesse Lingard are back in training, but this weekend’s game against Brighton & Hove Albion will come too soon for the Manchester United trio.

    Valencia returned home from Tour 2018, presented by Aon, early after sustaining a suspected calf injury, while Matic did the same to undergo surgery in Philadelphia having picked up an injury at the World Cup with Serbia.

    Lingard was also involved at the tournament in Russia, where he helped England reached the semi-finals, and hasn’t played for the Reds since the Emirates FA Cup final at the end of last season.

    Speaking in his pre-match press conference at the Aon Training Complex on Friday afternoon, the boss confirmed the three players have been working on their fitness this week but are unlikely to be involved on Sunday at the Amex Stadium.

    “Lingard, Matic, and Valencia have been training with the team since yesterday [Thursday],” he told reporters. “[They are] fully fit but not yet [ready] to play or even to be selected, I think, and that’s it.”

    It means the Reds are again set to be without Sergio Romero, Diogo Dalot, Marcos Rojo, and Ander Herrera, with Jose confirming after last week’s season-opening win over Leicester City that he didn’t expect them to be back against Brighton.

    However, with nine days in between the two games, a number of United’s returning World Cup stars have had more preparation time on the training ground this week.

    “Of course, some of the boys are in a better condition because before Leicester they trained just three days and after this long, good working week, normally they are in a better condition,” the boss added.

    The Reds travel to the south coast to face a Brighton side who have strengthened their team well over the summer – and Jose feels United’s 1-0 defeat at the Amex Stadium back in May serves as a reminder of how tough it will be again for the Reds this weekend.

    “Looking to the match, I think the best way to look at it is to remember that three months ago we lost 1-0 there.

    “Chris [Hughton] is a great coach. Good players, good team, beautiful stadium, but difficult to play. They know how to play and they've kept the same team, they bought a few new players. I think the style is the same and the fact that they lost the first match [against Watford], obviously they are working for a reaction, working to improve their game, so a difficult match for us, but we are confident.

    “The training was really, really good all week and we go to win, obviously. That is our main objective.”

    Jose Mourinho has revealed Diogo Dalot has begun training with Manchester United’s squad this week, which could indicate the summer signing is edging closer to a first-team debut.

    The Portuguese full-back joined Porto in June and traveled to the USA for the pre-season tour last month but he is yet to appear in the red shirt, having undergone an operation before he signed for the club.

    However, Mourinho provided an update on the 19-year-old’s condition at his press conference on Friday, as well as discussing his other injured players ahead of Monday’s Premier League encounter with Tottenham Hotspur.

    Nemanja Matic, Antonio Valencia, and Alexis Sanchez have all returned to training; the former two are yet to play so far this season, while the latter missed last week’s defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion with a slight problem.

    Asked if any of those players would be available to face Spurs, Jose replied: “I don't know because today is still Friday and we are training on Saturday and Sunday, and the match is on Monday.

    “Decisions to be made on Sunday but yes, they are training with the team. Dalot is also training with the team for the first time this week, so in terms of the medical department, they are almost free.”

    Hopefully the players mentioned above get back soon. We always look better with Matic in the team, and Sanchez had a great pre season by all accounts, and we could do with him showing his Arsenal form if we want to get something out of this season. Given I don't think we have a right winger at the club, I always like to see Valencia at right back to offer that energy and width on the right. Its just a shame the lad cannot cross. Fingers crossed they all start tomorrow.

    One thing we don't need is the return of Valencia.

    I'm not his biggest fan but I don't think we have anybody better. It'll either be Valencia or Young, two Fergie era converted (failed?) wingers, and both knocking on. Hopefully Dalot will be decent when he's fit, otherwise we haven't really got a senior right back.

    JONES FORCED OFF AGAINST TOTTENHAM WITH AN INJURY

    by Mark Froggatt

    Monday 27 August 2018 - 22:59

    Jose Mourinho is awaiting a diagnosis on the injury that forced Phil Jones to exit Manchester United’s Premier League defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Monday night.

    The England international made his first appearance of the season against Spurs and made an encouraging start, as part of a back three that also included Chris Smalling and the versatile Ander Herrera.

    However, the evening ended in frustration for the former Blackburn Rovers defender when he picked up a suspected hamstring injury in the second half, leading to Victor Lindelof taking his place on 58 minutes.

    Jones walked straight down the tunnel after being replaced and, speaking after the final whistle, the manager gave this update to Sky Sports:

    “I don't know what Phil Jones has, maybe a hamstring injury but I have not spoken yet to know what it is. But we still have Smalling, Lindelof and Eric Bailly.”

    United’s next game in the Premier League is against Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon. It remains to be seen whether Jones will be fit but there could be an update from Mourinho during his regular pre-match press conference later this week.

    DALOT PLAYS AT OLD TRAFFORD TONIGHT

    by Adam Higgins
    Friday 31 August 2018 - 1300

    Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Sergio Romero and Diogo Dalot will play for Manchester United’s Under-23s at Old Trafford tonight (Friday), while Phil Jones is injured and Marcos Rojo is back in training.

    The Under-23s clash against Stoke City at Old Trafford, which kicks off at 19:00 BST and is live on MUTV, will represent a first appearance in a United shirt for summer signing Dalot, after the defender recovered from a knee injury sustained at his former club, FC Porto.

    Argentinian goalkeeper Romero hasn’t played for the Reds since the 1-0 win over Watford on the final day of last season and he missed the World Cup in Russia due to a knee problem.

    Fellow countryman Rojo played in the summer tournament but he didn’t play for United in pre-season after picking up an injury while on international duty.

    Meanwhile, the boss also confirmed to MUTV’s Stewart Gardner on Friday that Phil Jones is ruled out of Sunday's Premier League game against Burnley, after being substituted in Monday’s defeat by Tottenham with what appeared to be a hamstring issue.

    “Jones is injured, as you can imagine,” the boss said, ahead of the trip to Turf Moor. “Dalot and Romero will play tonight at Old Trafford in an Under-23s match, which is the first match for them after knee surgeries and they need that a little bit but it's good news for them because after that it's the international break and then, after that, they'll be in a real condition to play.

    “Marcos Rojo started training with the team a couple of days ago. He's not ready for this match but he is training with the team.“

    The United squad was also bolstered by the return of Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Antonio Valencia and Alexis Sanchez against Spurs after their recent absences.

    England defender Luke Shaw says he is "doing fine" after suffering a head injury in England's 2-1 defeat by Spain in the Nations League at Wembley.

    The Manchester United defender was carried off on a stretcher early in the second half after receiving treatment for close to seven minutes.

    He was treated by more than 10 members of the medical team.

    "Thank for for all the love and support," Shaw posted on Twitter. "I am doing fine and in the best hands."

    He added: "I'm a fighter so I will be back soon."

    After Saturday's game, England manager Gareth Southgate said: "Luke is up and talking and needs to be assessed."

    Shaw, 23, was making his first England appearance since March 2017 and set up Marcus Rashford's goal.

    HEAD INJURY FOR SHAW

    by Mark Froggatt
    Monday 10 September 2018 07:00

    Our August Player of the Month started for England for the first time since 8 September 2015, but the left-back’s evening unfortunately ended prematurely when he was taken off on a stretcher following an aerial collision with Spain defender Dani Carvajal. Shaw thankfully reported he is “doing fine” in a post-match tweet and vowed to be “back soon”, although it remains to be seen if the defender will be available for our Premier League match at Watford this weekend.

    The first international break of the 2018/19 season is over and it's time to focus again on domestic matters, with Manchester United back in Premier League action at Watford on Saturday.

    Club managers around the world will be waiting to see whether their players return unscathed and there are question marks over at least two of our men ahead of the trip to Vicarage Road.

    Jose Mourinho could be without Luke Shaw, who sustained a head injury in England's UEFA Nations League match against Spain at the weekend. Some reports suggest the left-back will be obliged to serve a mandatory seven-day concussion period of absence, though this has not been confirmed.

    Shaw has enjoyed a bright start to the season for United, picking up the Goal of the Month and Player of the Month awards for his performances in August, and will be assessed by United's medical staff before any decisions are taken. After the trip to Watford, the Reds' next fixture is away to Swiss side Young Boys in the Champions League on Wednesday.

    Marouane Fellaini sustained a minor back problem while training with the Belgium squad and returned to the Aon Training Complex after being ruled out of his side's matches against Scotland and Iceland. It is a setback for the towering midfielder who starred in United's victory against Burnley before the international break. Phil Jones had to miss that game through injury.

    I'm loving that estimated time of return for Jones.
