Chris Wilder hopes to have Phil Jagielka fit and ready for selection at Old Trafford in midweek.

The experienced defender was named amongst the substitutes against Newcastle on Sunday, despite suffering with an ankle problem that he picked up in training on Saturday.

But Wilder was keen to praise the commitment and professionalism of the 37-year-old and admits he is the obvious replacement for the suspended John Egan for the clash against the Red Devils.

Meanwhile, Jack O'Connell's fitness and return to training is a daily conversation according to the manager, who is adamant the defender won't be missing for the rest of the season as he is progressing very well in his rehabilitation from a knee problem.
