Eric Bailly available for selection after recovering from injury

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho could call upon Eric Bailly against Huddersfield Town this weekend following the centre-back’s return from a three-month layoff.

Bailly has not featured for the Red Devils since damaging his ankle in the 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in early November, which required surgery to rectify.

United confirmed on their official website that Bailly is now back in first-team contention, meaning that he may play a part in the FA Cup fifth-round tie at Huddersfield on Saturday evening.

The Ivory Coast international, a £30m signing from Villarreal in 2016, had featured 10 times in all competitions prior to be struck down by injury.

Injured duo Ander Herrera and Marcus Rashford will play no part against Huddersfield, however, while Marouane Fellaini and Daley Blind also remain absent.
