Leandro Trossard could be in line for a breakthrough with Belgium.

The uncapped Albion forward has a chance of winning his first cap in the forthcoming international break.

Trossard has been named in the Red Devils’ squad to visit San Marino and Scotland.

Eden Hazard is also there but the Real Madrid man is a doubt with a thigh injury which has ruled him out of league action.

That would appear to open a window of opportunity for Trossard, who has made a good start to life in the Premier League after his summer switch from Genk.

Belgium play a 3-4-2-1-system and Trossard is a perfect fit for one of the two roles behind the striker.

Those positions are normally reserved for Hazard and Dries Mertens.

It is thought that, even if Hazard plays, boss Roberto Martinez will not take the risk of giving him the full 180 minutes.

Contenders to operate in that role, apart from Trossard, are Leicester’s Dennis Praet, who can also play deeper in midfield, new boy Benito Raman of Schalke, Hans Vanaken of Club Brugge and youngster Yari Verschaeren of Anderlecht.

Close observers of the national team rate Trossard in the top three of those candidates and possibly the main man.

A strong showing at the Etihad tomorrow would further state his case.

Whether he starts against Manchester City remains to be seen given he did not feature in Albion’s only previous away league game this season, at Watford.

Florin Andone, currently serving a suspension in the Premier League, has been named in the Romania squad for matches against Spain and Malta
