Manchester United's Paul Pogba could make his first appearance for nearly three months against Burnley at Turf Moor next week.
The United man has has only played six times this season after suffering an ankle injury in the draw at Southampton on August 31. He returned for the cup tie with Rochdale on September 25 and lined up against Arsenal five days later, but has not appeared since September 30.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer believes he will be welcoming a world class talent back into the fold when the 26-year-old, who has been ill in recent days and also attended his brother's wedding, does return.
And that could well be against the Clarets after the Old Trafford chief confirmed he will feature for the club before 2019 is out.
"We'll get a world-class player back very soon, and we've missed him, of course," said the boss to the Manchester Evening News.
United visit Watford this weekend and host Newcastle on Boxing Day with the clash with the Clarets coming on Saturday, December 28, with a 7.45pm kick off.
