Van Gaal to welcome back several first-teamers.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has finally received some welcome injury news as several first-teamers near a return to action, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Red Devils are hoping to include Phil Jones and Chris Smalling in their starting lineup again as big games against Chelsea and Manchester City come around, while Ander Herrera’s injury is also not as bad as initially feared.
Michael Carrick is also looking close to comeback, though Antonio Valencia and Jonny Evans may still be out for some time as United cope without an array of their best players.
Van Gaal had to deal with the absence of as many as ten first-team regulars at points this season.
