Pogba back for United
EUROPA
 
Manchester United has been boosted by the return of several injured players on the eve of their Europa League semi-final first leg at Celta Vigo.
Defender Eric Bailly trained wednesday despite limping out of Sunday’s draw with Swansea City.
Chris Smalling and Phil Jones took part having missed nine games with a knee injury and broken toe respectively.
Midfielder Paul Pogba returns from muscle fatigue, while Juan Mata could start after undergoing groin surgery.
Manager Jose Mourinho faced the prospect of fielding midfielder Michael Carrick or 19-year-old Axel Tuanzebe in central defence at Celta’s Estadio de Balaidos, but either Jones or Smalling will now likely feature alongside Bailly.
United is bidding to win the Europa League for the first time and guarantee a place in next season’s Champions League in the process.
This will be the English team’s first meeting with Celta, who sits 11th in La Liga and has lost its last three matches.
Mourinho’s side, by contrast, is unbeaten in 11 matches in all competitions.
The second leg is on May 11 at Old Trafford. The winners meet Ajax or Lyon at the Friends Arena in Stockholm on Wednesday, May 24.
