Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident that his players will be ready to deliver “a good performance” against Watford on Saturday afternoon.
Two weeks on from the derby defeat at home to Manchester City, the 20-time English champions will resume their Premier League campaign against the Hornets at Vicarage Road.
Solskjaer has said that the international break allowed everyone at the club to “refresh their minds”, and the Norwegian is expecting a strong “reaction” from the Red Devils this weekend.
“When we left for this international break it was a good time for us to refresh their minds, some players have stayed here, some have been allowed to go home to freshen up their minds, everyone has kept in touch with the staff and one of the things we’ve learnt over the last few years, my staff have been working really hard to get everyone ready,” Solskjaer told reporters.
“We’ve corrected a few things, put some things right. I’m sure we’ll see a reaction and a good performance tomorrow.”
Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane will definitely be absent for Man United on Saturday, while a number of other players, including Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw, are seen as major doubts.
