Manchester United travel to Watford on Saturday (3pm) as the Premier League returns following the recent international break.

It will have seemed like a long two weeks for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since the Red Devils were last in action, when they lost 2-0 in the Manchester derby at the start of the month.

The Norwegian also has several injury concerns ahead of the game with Watford, with the availability of a number of key players still unknown.

United are sixth in the table after 11 league games and have amassed 17 points so far, nine fewer than leaders Chelsea.

As for Watford, they are only one spot above the relegation zone and have lost four of their last five. The Hornets are managed by ex-Chelsea and Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri, who has lost his last five encounters with United.

The game will also be a special occasion for Jadon Sancho, who came through the Watford academy but is yet to play at Vicarage Road, or against the Hornets.

What’s the latest team news?

Paul Pogba is suspended for the game, but also picked up a long-term injury during the international break and could be out of action for a number of weeks.

His compatriot Raphael Varane is missing as well with a hamstring issue, while fellow defender Luke Shaw is a doubt after being ruled out of both England international games with a concussion. Therefore, Alex Telles could start his first league match of the season.

In midfield, Scott McTominay might be unavailable due to an illness which forced him to miss Scotland’s recent double header with Denmark and Moldova. Meanwhile Edinson Cavani is likely to miss out with a tendon problem.

Marcus Rashford stayed with United during the latest round of international fixtures, but is expected to be available for Saturday. Anthony Martial is also an option for Solskjaer in attack.

As for Watford, Ozan Tufan picked up an injury while on international duty and is set to miss out, as will Juraj Kucka who is suspended following the red card he received last time out against Arsenal.

Ken Sema is also a doubt after pulling out of the Sweden squad during the recent break. Christian Kabasele, Peter Etebo and Kwadwo Baah are all long-term absentees through injury.

Predicted line-ups

Watford (4-4-1-1): Foster; Feminia, Cathcart, Nkoulou, Rose; Sarr, Cleverly, Sissoko, Hernandez; Pedro; King.

Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; Fred, Van de Beek; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo.
