Saint-Maximin has returned to full training with United and head coach Eddie Howe admitted he was hopeful of seeing him back in action this weekend.

“Yeah, hopefully [he’ll play against Brentford],” Howe said. “It’s always difficult to give a guarantee, but he did train with the team [on Friday].

"We need to make sure when he comes back he’s fit enough to do himself and the team justice. Hopefully, with a good training week under his belt, he’ll be closer.”
