Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera could wear a corset against West Brom on Monday night, reports the Metro. 

The Spanish midfielder - who arrived at Old Trafford in a big-money deal from Athletic Bilbao last summer - was originally set to be out on the sidelines for as long as six weeks, however it now appears that he's in contention to play at the Hawthorns.

It appears, then, that the midfield ace could play in a corset against the Baggies after previously fracturing his rib in the Red Devils' win over West Ham United at the end of last month. 

It will certainly prove a major boost for the club, as they go in search of their third straight Premier League victory under Louis van Gaal. After a tricky start to the campaign, the Red Devils have been moving up the table in recent weeks, so will be hoping to prove their credentials at the Hawthorns. 

Midfield options

Herrera may well partner Argentine superstar Angel di Maria and versatile Dutchman Daley Blind in the middle of the park on Monday night. United fans will also be hoping to see 33-year-old Michael Carrick return after his lengthy injury, but it's likely that he will only take up a place on the bench. 

Darren Fletcher could also be in contention for a starting spot, with Belgian ace Marouane Fellaini also available.
