Manchester United’s Bastian Schweinsteiger ready to face Watford

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United’s Bastian Schweinsteiger has declared that he is fit and raring to go ahead of the game against Watford this weekend.

Schweinsteiger was involved in the game between France and Germany at Stade de France on Friday during the international break, which was targeted by suicide bombers.

Germany’s subsequent game against Netherlands was then called off amid security fears following the deadly attacks.

Louis van Gaal revealed in his press conference on Friday that he had spoken to his players to ascertain whether they are in the right frame of mind to play but Schweinsteiger seems to be ready to go:

Watford will provide a stern test at Vicarage Road and Man United will need to be in top form if they are to take away a positive result.

With Michael Carrick injured, Schweinsteiger will likely be called upon to operate in the middle of the park against the Hornets alongside Morgan Schneiderlin. The former Bayern Munich has made a stellar start to life at Old Trafford and he will no doubt continue his good form against Watford.
