Meanwhile, club medical staff are growing increasingly concerned about Lindelof’s back injury.
The 26-year-old has been playing with the issue for much of the season and the problem flared up again during the 3-1 win at Everton before the international break.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already having to carefully manage Lindelof’s workload to navigate a packed schedule that will only get more hectic through December and January.
United have Tuanzebe available to fill in and Eric Bailly is nearing a return after missing more than a month with a muscle problem. The Ivory Coast international hasn’t featured since the 6-1 defeat to Tottenham on Oct. 4.
The 27-year-old, who has already spent a period in isolation after contracting COVID-19, will have to return a second negative before being cleared to play but United are confident he will be able to deputise for Luke Shaw, who is sidelined with a hamstring injury.
Shaw could be out for another month but is targeting a return to action in time for the first Manchester derby of the season against City at Old Trafford on Dec. 12.
Should Telles feature against West Brom, it would be his Premier League debut following his summer move from Porto.
