Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal insists Bastian Schweinsteiger is match fit.
Van Gaal says the German could make his first start tomorrow against Newcastle United.
As quoted on the United website, he said: “Yes, of course. It’s a matter of time. Maybe it shall happen tomorrow. You never know.
“I think he can still do better because when you are not fit enough then it is difficult to show your highest level.
“But I think it’s also a matter of time and we have seen a solution in rotating our [second] captain, Michael Carrick, with Schweinsteiger. I think it’s a very good solution because we can spare them both for the big moments.”
