anchester United have Raphael Varane on the bench as they face Everton in the Premier League today.
The Frenchman missed the Europa League win over Omonia Nicosia on Thursday after coming off during United’s loss to Manchester City and there was a hope his ankle problem is not a serious one.
The situation is made more pressing given Harry Maguire’s injury and the England international continues to miss out, but Varane is fit enough only for the bench.

Elsewhere, Anthony Martial starts after scoring three goals in his last two games and partners Marcus Rashford alongside summer signing Antony.
Cristiano Ronaldo is on the bench once again, but his former Real Madrid team-mate Casemiro comes into the side and partners Christian Eriksen in midfield.
“Raphael Varane makes progress, and I hope he’s available, but I think it will be close,” confirmed ten Hag at Friday’s pre-match press conference.
“From the other players, Harry Maguire [is] not [available] and then it’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Donny van de Beek, both not [fit].”
Starting XI: De Gea, Dalot, Lindelof, Martinez, Shaw, Casemiro, Eriksen, Antony, Fernandes, Rashford, Martial.
Subs: Heaton, Malacia, Fred, Varane, Sancho, Pellistri, Elanga, McTominay, Ronaldo
