Manchester United supporters might actually be glad for the arrival of the international break this month following a miserable month under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
A number of key players are injured, with Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof, Diogo Dalot, Mason Greenwood and Eric Bailly all sidelined ahead of internationals this month.
One Man United player who will be smiling, however, is goalkeeper Dean Henderson, currently on loan at Sheffield United, who has earned his first callup to England’s senior squad following an injury to former United academy player and Burnley keeper Tom Heaton.
