Man Utd step up West Brom preparations as injured stars work hard before return

Manchester United stepped up their preparations for this weekend’s clash against West Brom as several stars returned to Carrington.

There were even a number of players who are currently out of action who were putting in the hard yards in recovery.

The likes of Bruno Fernandes and Alex Telles, who both came through the international break unscathed, took to the training pitch all smiles.

Meanwhile, Paul Pogba and Victor Lindelof were spotted chatting on the bike machines, despite the latter’s fitness concerns around a back injury.

Luke Shaw, who is nursing a hamstring injury, gave a friendly thumbs up to the camera while he worked out in the gym.

While out of favour youngster Mason Greenwood was snapped lifting weights.

United face a potential banana skin in West Brom this weekend, knowing a much needed win would put their season firmly back on track.

And former Red Devils striker Dimitar Berbatov has advised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer how to set up his attack.

“I want the big Uruguayan to score more for United, after getting his first against Everton a couple of weeks ago, but to do that he needs to play more minutes,” Berbatov told Betfair.

“I want to see Cavani play down the middle, with Anthony Martial on the left and Marcus Rashford to the right.

“When he has come on, Cavani has looked sharp so far for United and made some excellent runs.
