  • Andre Onana hopeful of being fit for Sunday’s game at Goodison Park
  • Tests have shown the Man United keeper has not suffered a muscle strain 
  • It’s the world against Everton – it can galvanise the players to stay up – IAKO 

Andre Onana is reported to be hopeful of being fit for Manchester United’s Premier League fixture with Everton on Sunday despite suffering an injury playing for Cameroon.

The goalkeeper was substituted late in the 3-0 victory over Mauritius on Friday.

The Cameroon FA confirmed that Onana has withdrawn from the squad for Tuesday’s match against Libya due to a pelvic injury.

ESPN reported a source saying Onana is hopeful of being fit for the game at Goodison Park because the injury is not thought to be a muscle strain, which would take longer to heal.

If Onana isn’t passed fit to face Everton, then United will give a debut to summer signing Altay Bayindir.

The 25-year-old arrived in a £4.3 million deal from Fenerbahce but is yet to feature his season.

But he did play for Turkey in the 3-2 win over Germany on Saturday.

Onana returned to the UK on Sunday night after withdrawing from the Cameroon squad.

He will undergo medical tests with United staff this week before a decision is made about whether he is available to face Everton.

United boss Erik ten Hag also faces an anxious wait over Marcus Rashford, who limped off as England picked up a 2-0 win over Malta.

Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia, Jonny Evans, Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, Amad Diallo and Rasmus Hojlund are all currently out injured.

Onana has made 19 appearances for United this season since joining the club from Inter Milan
