Mason Mount is set to be included in a Man United squad for the first time in four months this weekend.

Manchester United’s big summer splash over the summer transfer window was Mason Mount. The Englishman was quickly identified as a player who could improve this Red Devils midfield, with the club spending big to sign him from Chelsea.

Mount had a sharp pre-season, though that’s all we’ve really seen from the midfielder. Injuries have plagued his debut campaign, which is absolutely gutting for both player and fans.

It’s a bitter pill to swallow given how hard Erik ten Hag pushed to bring Mount in, particularly as we’re now not going to see the best from the player until next season as he works his way back from the treatment room.

This week, pictures of Mount back in training surfaced. He hasn’t played a competitive game since November so naturally, we assumed that it’d be at least another fortnight or so before he’s even considered for meaningful minutes.

Well, The Athletic seem to have sources telling them the contrary. According to their latest information, the United star is set to be included in the Reds’ match day squad for the first time in four months, when Liverpool visit Old Trafford tomorrow.

We haven’t seen Mount since mid-November in the Luton Town game, so it’s nigh-on impossible for Mount to come straight back into the starting line-up here. More than likely, he’ll remain on the bench for this one.

With the international break now on the horizon, it would make sense to give Mount another fortnight worth of training before getting him back out there on the field. The last thing United would want is to rush him back and risk the player picking up another injury.

  1. We hope Man.Utd are watching the Wolves Vs Coventry match. It is a lesson to learn from this Coventry club who is so very competitive.
    Tomorrow with that in mind, they have to play Liverpool.
    They must learn that consistency and competitiveness and not to panic and commit blunders by wrongly passing and always not keeping the ball near their goal because that puts them at risk. If they remember that moving forward makes it faster and also accurate passing improves the quality of the games. Also to have a keen eye on the ball and at the goal to even learn tactics to trick the goalie when striking.
