Manchester United players return to training ahead of crucial Watford game on the weekend
According to the Daily Mail, several Manchester United players returned to training ahead of their game against Watford on Saturday night.

But it is time to return, and the Red Devils are set to face the Hornets on the weekend. Several stars arrived at Carrington for resuming training, albeit a fair few of them were fringe players.
Donny van de Beek return to Carrington as he was not called up by the Dutch national team. Alex Telles and Dean Henderson also drove into the complex. Both players have suffered for minutes and are yet to start a league game this season.
Raphael Varane was already present as he was working towards his recovery from his hamstring injury. Scott McTominay arrived after suffering a throat virus while on duty with Scotland.
