Diogo Dalot and Lisandro Martinez could return to the Manchester United squad for their first Premier League game of the year at home to Bournemouth.
Dalot has missed the last three games due to a hamstring injury he sustained in Portugal's World Cup quarter-final defeat to Morocco but he started training last week.
Martinez, absent for the wins over Burnley, Nottingham Forest and Wolves through his involvement in Argentina's triumph in Qatar, has also had multiple training sessions.

Scott McTominay recovered from illness to train prior to the Wolves match on New Year's Eve and could also return to the matchday squad on Tuesday.
"We have to see. Both were training yesterday and today," Erik ten Hag said of Martinez and McTominay. "I’m quite optimistic that they can both return to the squad.
"Diogo Dalot also made good progress. We don’t want to take risks with anyone because we know there are many games to come and we need a full squad to cover all the games."
Jadon Sancho is unlikely to be available as he is still training separately from the United squad at their Carrington training complex.
United have won their last five games and Bournemouth is the first of what Ten Hag hopes to be eight games in January, with Everton and Charlton due at Old Trafford in the FA Cup and the League Cup over the next week.
Ten Hag criticised some unnamed players for a lack of focus in the 1-0 win over Wolves but feels he addressed the issue in his half-time team talk at Molineux.
"I think I already solved it at half-time. In the second half I saw a different approach," Ten Hag added. "There was more investment, more focus, more aggression. We had better organisation in the second half and created more chances. The win was well deserved."
