Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger could feature in the club’s clash with Middlesbrough on New Year’s Eve.
The German’s made just one appearance under Jose Mourinho after coming on as a late substitute in November’s EFL Cup clash against West Ham.
The 32-year-old was initially frozen out by Mourinho and was forced to train with the club’s U23s after being told he was free to leave Old Trafford.

Manchester United fixtures

Middlesbrough (H) – Sat 31 Dec
West Ham (A) – Mon 2 Jan

Hull – EFL Cup (H) – Tue 10 Jan
Liverpool (H) – Sun 15 Jan

However, injuries and Schweinsteiger’s professionalism convinced Mourinho that he could be of use and he was spotted at the team’s hotel on Friday night ahead of the team’s clash with Middlesbrough.
United face West Ham just 48 hours after hosting Middlesbrough, meaning Mourinho’s likely to call on his squad over the testing period.
