Diafra Sakho has been included in Slaven Bilic's squad for tomorrow's season opener against Manchester United.

The oft-injured forward is back in the first team squad for the first time since November 2016 having come through pre-season with no further setbacks.

Also included in the travelling party is 19-year-old England youth goalkeeper Nathan Trott, who will provide back-up for first-team stoppers Joe Hart and Adrian.

However full-back Aaron Cresswell has failed to travel with the rest of the party; if unavailable, he joins the likes of Andy Carroll, Manuel Lanzini, Michail Antonio and Cheikhou Kouyate on what is already a sizeable MIA list.
