Manchester United have received a double fitness boost as there are positive updates on pair Scott McTominay and Victor Lindelof.

As noted by the club’s official site, Victor Lindelof was pushed to miss the win over Chelsea on Monday night due to illness, and so there were perhaps doubts over his availability in midweek.

Manchester United face Club Brugge in the first leg of their Europa League round-of-32 tie, and as per the club’s site, the Swedish centre-back has travelled with the rest of the line-up for the encounter.

That would suggest that he has improved sufficiently to be considered available for selection, but considering how Eric Bailly impressed versus Chelsea, Victor Lindelof may find it difficult to push his way back into the starting line-up immediately.

In turn, it’s a selection headache that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will welcome, and it remains to be seen what he decides to go with for this extraordinary encounter.

Meanwhile, the same report adds that Scott McTominay returned to full training on Wednesday as he steps up his recovery from a knee injury, and although he won’t feature against Club Brugge, it’s still a big positive for Manchester United that he is apparently on the verge of making his comeback.

The 23-year-old ace has made 21 matches already this season, chipping in with three goals and an assist, and before his injury setback, he was undoubtedly an essential part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans.

With that in mind, having him back for the business end of the campaign will be a massive boost for Manchester United, as he’ll add another key option in midfield as they look to compete on multiple fronts between now and the end of the campaign.
