But midfielder Diame and defender Clark are not in Rafa Benitez's squad for the Championship opener at Craven Cottage.

However, defender Chancel Mbemba – who missed last weekend's game against Vitesse Arnhem with an ankle problem – is expected to travel to London for the game.

The only other player unavailable to United manager Rafa Benitez is forward Siem de Jong (hamstring).
