Rafa Benitez is hopeful that Jonjo Shelvey and Matt Ritchie can return to the United fold for the visit of Arsenal next weekend.
The midfield duo missed the 2-1 defeat at Manchester City last time out due to respective thigh and knee issues, but speaking to NUFC TV, Benitez confirmed that both players are closing in on a comeback. "When you have players injured, the international break gives you some time to recover. They are training really hard and that’s good news for us because they’re getting closer," he said. Javier Manquillo should also be back in contention having just missed out in week four. The full-back trained ahead of the trip to the Etihad, but after DeAndre Yedlin was passed fit, Rafa decided not to risk him. The news means that, barring any setbacks, only long-term absentee Florian Lejeune remains on the side-lines as Isaac Hayden has now served his three-game ban after being sent-off at Cardiff City.
