​Man Utd hopeful Lingard will return for Chelsea meeting

Manchester United are hopeful that Jesse Lingard will be back for their key games after the international break.

Lingard has been out for the past few games due to a groin injury.

The United medical staff believed that he needed a few weeks of rest to let the issue clear up.

But the Evening Standard believes that he will be ready for their two games right after the break - Chelsea away and Juventus at home.

Other injury concerns for United include Luke Shaw and Nemanja Matic, who withdrew from their national teams for this international break.
