Manchester United hope to have Alex Telles available against West Brom this weekend after the Brazil defender was cleared to face Uruguay on Tuesday night following another Covid scare.

United’s new £13.6million signing has missed the last five games since making his debut against Paris Saint-Germain a month ago after contracting coronavirus.

Reports in Brazil claimed that Telles had tested positive again, but he was allowed to rejoin the squad for Tuesday night’s World Cup qualifier in Montevideo following a negative result.

United are missing Luke Shaw after the full back picked up a knock against Everton

That will be good news for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who will be without the injured Luke Shaw at left back when United face West Brom at Old Trafford on Saturday night. 

Shaw picked up a knock in the 3-1 win over Everton at Goodison Park, while Marcus Rashford appeared to hurt his back during the victory.

Solskjaer bemoaned the heavy fixture pile up and blasted football authorities for what he deemed as unfair scheduling, saying his side had been ‘set up to fail’ as a result.
