Paul Pogba is a little under 24 hours away from making his second debut for Manchester United.
The Frenchman completed a world-record £89 million return to the Red Devils earlier this month but was denied the opportunity to make his bow against Bournemouth last Sunday because of an unforeseen suspension.
An extra week to physically prepare will perhaps do Pogba the world of good and it would certainly seem that way.

According to Jose Mourinho, the 23-year-old is ready to feature for United after recovering from his Euro 2016 exploits.
But there's a catch.
In Thursday's press conference ahead of United's clash with Southampton, Mourinho admitted that whilst Pogba is ready to make his debut, he won't be able to complete a full 90 minutes.
Nor, in fact, will he be able to make a "super" impact against the Saints.
Mourinho said, per the Daily Mail: "Paul has been training for more than a week, 10 or 11 days. We played against Leicester City (in the Community Shield) with some players who had less training than that.
"They weren't on top of their game - not ready for 90 minutes - but they played and performed. And it was a good way for them to accelerate the process of building up form.
"I think he (Pogba) is ready to play. For 90 minutes, I don't believe. A super performance, I don't believe.
"But to accelerate his integration in the team, for sure.
"His adaptation has been really easy because he is a boy from here, he knows everybody. He doesn't need time to adapt, just time to build his condition and his understanding in the way the team tries to play."
Whilst United fans will be desperate to see their record signing firing on all cylinders, it's vital that Pogba is gradually eased back into a competitive environment.
Play against any Premier League side unfit or unprepared and the France international risks suffering a long-term muscle injury.
