Man Utd boost as Bailly hits training pitch

Eric Bailly is set to be fit for Manchester United's clash with Leicester City.

The Manchester Evening News says United were handed a triple selection boost as they welcomed three players back to training ahead of their match against Leicester this weekend.

Paul Pogba, Bailly and Jesse Lingard all reported back at Carrington on Wednesday as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side gear up for a return to action following the international break.

Bailly featured for the Ivory Coast in a 2-1 win over Malawi during the break, while Lingard started for England in their 5-0 win against Andorra but missed the 1-1 draw with Hungary this week.

Pogba starred for France as they defeated Spain to win the Nations League final on Sunday, though compatriot Raphael Varane will be out 'for a few weeks' after suffering an injury in the same match.

The trio's return is a welcome boost to Solskjaer ahead of the trip to the King Power stadium this weekend with Harry Maguire also a doubt to face his former club.
