Juan Mata, who was dropped for the clash with Spurs on Monday evening after Uniteds poor performance against Brighton, was also with his United teammates at the hotel.

The report also claims that Andreas Pereira and Matteo Darmian were not seen entering the hotel, which could mean that they will play no part against Sean Dyches side.

Sergio Romero stepped up his recovery from a knee injury by playing for Uniteds Under-23s on Friday evening and is now in the first-team squad.

Summer signing Diogo Dalot also played in that match against Stoke Citys Under-23s but will make his debut after the international break.
