With Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba fully fit, Manchester United will be a powerful force when the Premier League resumes, says Jamie Redknapp.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had gone 11 games unbeaten when football was suspended in March due to coronavirus and during the following three months key players Rashford and Pogba have been able to get back to full fitness after injury lay-offs.
The pair will be ready and available for United’s big Friday Night Football clash with Tottenham – which you can watch live on Sky Sports – and Redknapp says they will be a huge boost to the team as they push for the Champions League qualifying places.

“There are important players coming back,” Redknapp told The Sky Sports Football Podcast.
“If you look at Manchester United right now, they’ve got a young man in Marcus Rashford who is now fit for his team. That’s going to be amazing to have him back for United. It’s like a brand new signing – one of the best centre forwards in the world or wide players, wherever you want to play him. So I think United will look at that and think ‘we’ve got a real chance’.
“It will be interesting to see the dynamic in midfield, too, with Paul Pogba coming back as well. There’s so much talent in that area now and if you can get that midfield working together then you’ve got a really big chance.
“Teams will be nervous about United. The likes of Chelsea that are already in the top four will be looking over their shoulder.”
