Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been handed a triple injury boost as Paul Pogba, Michael Carrick and Marcos Rojo are all set to be available for the clash against Newcastle United.

The France international picked up a hamstring injury in United's Champions League win over Basel in September. Since then, he has been on the sidelines as United suffered two league defeats against Huddersfield Town and Chelsea in the process.

According to ESPN FC, Pogba is training with United reserves at Carrington. Mourinho has given a week off to his star players who are not involved in international duties. The list includes the likes of Chris Smalling, Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Scott McTominay.

However, the former Juventus man has stepped up his recovery in order to make himself available for selection against Newcastle. Pogba is not the only senior player training with the Red Devils' Under-23 side.

The 24-year-old was joined by Rojo and Carrick in the training session. The Argentine international last featured for the 20-time English champions in their last season's Europa League clash against Anderlecht in April.

Rojo has been on the sidelines since then and Mourinho earlier confirmed that he expects the defender to be back after the international break. Carrick has featured only once for United this term, in the Carabao Cup clash against Burton Albion in Septemnber.

Carrick, along with Pogba and Rojo are expected to join the main group when the first team players return to Carrington after their commitments with the national team.

The Red Devils suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on 5 November. They face the Tyneside club after the two weeks of international break on 18 October and the return of the trio will come as welcome boost for Mourinho.
