Major news coming in from Old Trafford as Jose Mourinho has confirmed in his pre-match conference that Paul Pogba, Marcos Rojo & the one and only Zlatan Ibrahimovic all have recovered from their respective injuries, and will feature in tomorrow’s match day squad to face Newcastle United.
Ibrahimovic has not appeared for United since April after suffering a serious knee injury, though that did not deter the Red Devils from offering him a fresh one-year deal.
Pogba, meanwhile, has been missing since September after suffering a hamstring injury during United’s Champions League group stage victory over Basel.

Here is what the Man Utd manager had to say regarding the players returning :
“The players that stayed here and [were] recovering from injuries, even the ones that are recovering from big injuries, they are ready to play.”
On Pogba he added :
“Clearly you can see there was a Manchester United this season before and after his injury. He has qualities that influence our approach in matches.”
The return of these players is clearly a major injury boost to Man Utd, who have been struggling a bit in the last few games. A great news for Man Utd fans to cherish, as they will be eagerly waiting to see the King Zlatan return back to the football pitch along with their star man Paul Pogba and also Marcos Rojo.
