Manchester United have confirmed that Alex Telles will be part of their squad to face Everton this weekend in a crucial clash.
Pressure is mounting on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the Old Trafford hot seat, with United down in 15th place in the Premier League.
Their plight for Saturday’s clash against overachievers Everton has been aided by the return of Brazil international Telles, though.
The left-back made just one appearance for the club, making his debut in the surprise Champions League win over PSG.
But Telles tested positive of Covid-19 not long after, and has been self-isolating since.
However, the former Porto man is now back in training, and will be part of the match day squad to face Everton.
Solskjaer confirmed that Telles was back in full training, and could be in line to make his return alongside Victor Lindelof, who will be subject to a late fitness test to determine whether he makes the squad to play at Goodison Park.
“We've not lost any [players] from the Istanbul trip,” the manager said. “Same group, same squad.
“Alex has started training with us, which is good. Victor has still got the issue that he's been struggling with. He'll have to be checked tonight [Friday] in the hotel.
“It's the same squad as before Istanbul really.”
Ahead of what could be a make or break clash for Solskjaer this weekend, the Norwegian refused to comment on the situation regarding his future on Wednesday.

“I decline to comment on such a thing,” he fired back.
“Of course, it’s early on and opinions are out there all the time.
