The United goalkeeper suffered a shoulder injury while being on international duty.

Manchester United has received encouraging news on the injury front as goalkeeper Andre Onana is expected to be fit for the upcoming clash against Everton.

Concerns arose when Onana, who was in action for Cameroon against Mauritius, was substituted late in the game due to discomfort in his adductor muscle.

However, a report from Mirror claims the setback is not severe, and Onana was precautionarily taken off to prevent exacerbating the issue.

While it remains uncertain if Onana will feature in Cameroon’s World Cup qualifying match on Tuesday, insiders close to the 27-year-old suggest that he will be available for Manchester United’s fixture against Everton.

Onana has been a key figure, starting all 19 matches for United this season and keeping four clean sheets in the Premier League.

The timely return of Onana is crucial for United, especially with the looming possibility of losing him for up to six matches in January if he decides to participate in the Africa Cup of Nations.

In related injury news, England boss Gareth Southgate has downplayed concerns about Marcus Rashford‘s fitness after the forward was involved in a collision during the match against Malta. Rashford was substituted off, and Southgate has hinted that he hasn’t picked up a serious knock.
