Bailly has not played for United in nearly a month, missing all of their last four games across all competitions after returning from global duty with what the club called an "unspecified problem".
Toby Alderweireld is aware that he can't afford to make many mistakes against compatriot Romelu Lukaku when Tottenham Hotspur visit Manchester United on Saturday. And I think he really wants me to play under him again'.
"I have the player that I want to have, probably I have the player I didn't think it was possible to have", he said.
United and Spurs are level on 20 points in the Premier League and sit as the closest challengers to leaders Manchester City on the eve of a keenly anticipated Old Trafford clash.
One player who will be available for Mourinho on Saturday is Nemanja Matic.

The Pochettino book, "Brave New World", also sees the Tottenham manager express his dissatisfaction that he caught midfield player Eric Dier talking and joking with Mourinho in the Old Trafford tunnel after Spurs lost there last season.
And, as per multiple outlets in England today, the Spurs star may soon get his wish of a sky-high wage-slip, with rumours intensifying that his club and Manchester United could engage in negotiations over a swap deal between he and Luke Shaw. Because of his words?
"I was honest. My relationship with him is very good, we are in contact". So, for me, the flawless words that show Luke Shaw's character in relation to the people he was happy with. "He needs two, three, four, five or six matches in a row to play, to make mistakes, to get condition, to get match fitness and I can not give him that".
"(If) I speak about him, I have to speak about Zlatan Ibrahimovic, (Marouane) Fellaini, (Paul) Pogba, (Marcos) Rojo, (Michael) Carrick - so I don't speak".
