After recovering from a groyne injury, Manchester United custodian Andre Onana could start this weekend’s match against Everton, according to Fabrizio Romano.

 

This season’s Premier League games were regarded as questionable following the injury sustained while travelling for Cameroon’s international team.

 

The 27-year-old was substituted off in his side’s 3-0 win over Mauritius last Friday (17 November) and missed the 1-1 draw with Libya on Tuesday (21 November).

 

However, in an update on his Daily Briefing page on Friday morning (24 November), Romano said: “Andre Onana has no serious injury after his scare with Cameroon.

“The goalkeeper is training with the rest of the Man United squad and is fit for the Everton match on Sunday.”

 

Opponents Man United have had a number of injury issues to contend with over the past fortnight, but it is looking as though five of their injury doubts will return at Goodison Park.

 

As well as having Onana back, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw, Marcus Rashford and Rasmus Hojlund are also rumoured to be in contention to feature [Manchester Evening News, 20 November].

 

The Red Devils will benefit especially from Onana’s return because backup Altay Bayindir hasn’t played much and isn’t the most reliable goalie.

 

Given the happenings off the pitch during the past week or so, Everton’s players will be primed for this match at Goodison Park regardless of the team that United fields.

 

The only regular for Sean Dyche who is expected to miss the match is Andre’s namesake, Amadou, but the Toffees have a good enough team to win against United.
