Manuel Pellegrini says he expects to have his trio of injured players back for this weekend's trip to Watford.

Club captain Mark Noble - who is yet to feature this season, Sebastien Haller and Felipe Anderson were all missing from the squad that drew 1-1 with Brighton at the AmEx Stadium last weekend.

However according to Pellegrini, all three are likely to be in contention for selection when he takes the team to Vicarage Road this weekend in search of United's first Premier League win of the season.

The only injury concern this weekend is central defender Winston Reid, who has been missing since pre-season for reasons as yet unexplained.

Meanwhile Pellegrini confirmed that Jack Wilshere - whose form has been the subject of much discussion amongst Hammers fans since the start of the season - is once again fir for selection.

"This week we have just Winston Reid out," Pellegrini told the media at his pre-match press conference on Thursday morning. "All the other players are fit.

"Jack, as with all the players coming back from long injuries, needs time to recover his performance. We've giving him minutes, so we hope that every game he plays he will improve.

"The same happened with Carlos Sanchez, Andriy Yarmolenko and Manuel Lanzini last season."
