While on international duty, Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana suffered a groin injury. Despite this, he wants to be back for their Sunday trip to Everton.
Onana had to be replaced after hurting himself while trying to save a goal for Cameroon during their 3-0 victory over Mauritius on Friday.
However, his departure has been explained as a preventative measure.
Onana missed Cameroon’s tie with Libya but returned to Manchester on Sunday and practiced twice with United.
Onana is anticipated to be cleared to play at Goodison Park on Sunday, and backup Altay Bayindir is prepared to step in if necessary.
After spending £4.3 million to join Manchester United from Fenerbahce in the summer, Bayindir is still waiting to make his senior team debut.
Luke Shaw also made his first appearance back with the first team at Carrington on Wednesday after a three-month absence.
Another significant advantage for manager Erik ten Hag is that the England international defender is expected to participate for the first time since August.
Tyrell Malacia, Jonny Evans, Casemiro, and Lisandro Martinez are still absent from United.
Christian Eriksen, a midfielder, and Rasmus Hojlund, a striker, are also questionable due to injuries they sustained during the 1-0 victory over Luton prior to the international break.
