0

MANCHESTER UNITED will be able to call on the services of Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard this weekend after coming back from injury, Jose Mourinho confirmed.

The Red Devils have won just two of their last seven games but have bounced back with a win over Everton last weekend.

But Mourinho knows he must keep his side consistent if he wants to stand any chance of pushing for the top four.

United are currently eighth in the table, nine points off Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Bournemouth, on the other hand, are flying high in sixth, three points ahead of the Old Trafford outfit.

But The Special One has confirmed a major squad boost ahead of the match, with Sanchez and Lingard both fit to play.

He said: “A very good week. We work tactically, we improve some fitness levels.

“We improve some of the players that were almost there but not there – Lingard, Alexis – these kind of players, that were already available but not yet at a good level.

“We trained with our kids too. They mixed with us on one of the days, which is an amazing feeling for them.

“Dalot and Fellaini are still out. The only one that went one step behind was Antonio Valencia with some problem in his knee. But Lingard and Alexis, now i can say ‘ready.’

“The mood is fine. Our last couple of weeks was positive. Second-half against Newcastle, Chelsea.

“Juventus was really hard and team fought hard. Not a negative performance. Another positive performance against Everton and in some moments really positive.”

Meanwhile, Mourinho explained his innocence once more after being cleared of swearing against Newcastle.

He added: “You know the reason why I ask the club and lawyers to appeal was because I was 100% that I was not guilty of this charges but you never know how it ends.

“Yes I’m pleased but I know that I have to respect the process and I have to wait for what is going to happen next but I only appeal if I feel I am not guilty, I don’t appeal to lose my time or others lose their time.”
