Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has provided a huge fitness boost with the trio of Alexis Sanchez, Nemanja Matic and Antonio Valencia returning to first-team training ahead of the Tottenham Hotspur clash.
United were pretty mediocre with their showing during the 3-2 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion and the Portuguese may now decide on making a couple of changes before the visit of Spurs.
Speaking ahead of the Spurs game, Mourinho confirmed that the trio of Sanchez, Matic and Valencia are in contention for the match, though he has yet to decide on their involvement on Monday night.
Aside from them, summer signing Diogo Dalot has also joined his teammates in training after recovering from a knee surgery, though he may have to wait until next month to make his United debut.
Matic, Valencia and Sanchez are all in contention: "There are decisions to be made, but they are training with the team." Dalot is also with the team, but following knee surgery in April, he won't be considered just yet. "In terms of the medical dept; they are almost free." #MUFC

Sanchez has been ever-present for Mourinho whenever he has been in good health and the Chilean should most certainly slot into the left side of the attack for the game at Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, the same case lies with Matic and Valencia in the midfield and right-back positions, though the duo may start from the bench, given they have not witnessed any on-field action in recent weeks.
