What’s the latest team news?

Ralf Rangnick confirmed in Friday’s press conference that Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani should both be available for Saturday’s game.

The pair missed last weekend’s derby due to injury, the latter having been out for over a month with a groin problem. However, Rangnick expects the strikers to be fit for the visit of Spurs.

However, the can’t same can’t be said for Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay, both of whom look set to miss out on Saturday.

“We will still miss out on Luke Shaw. He, until yesterday, was still testing positive with Covid,” Rangnick explained.

“Scotty is a question mark, he had some issues with his calf so we will have to wait and see until today after training.

“But right now it is more likely he will not be available, because if we risk him tomorrow he will more likely be out for the game on Tuesday [against Atletico Madrid]. That’s why I tend to, with muscular issues, even more so if it’s a calf muscle, I tend to be more careful.”

Moving on to Ronaldo, Rangnick said: ““He resumed training yesterday. He trained for the whole session and I expect him to be in training today as well.
