Manchester United have received a huge boost against Wednesday’s Champions League tie against Sevilla as four players return to training.
United have had a pretty lengthy injury list for the last few weeks, with eight players ruled out for one reason or another due to injury or illness for their recent games.
However, with United set to play the first leg of the last-16 Champions League tie against Sevilla tomorrow night, Jose Mourinho’s squad has been boosted by the return of four of his squad to training, as Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ander Herrera and Marcus Rashford were all involved in today’s training session.
Pogba was missing from United’s FA Cup fifth round victory against Huddersfield at the weekend with a convenient ‘illness’ following all of the speculation surrounding his recent performances.
His absence was compounded as Ander Herrera was also unavailable due to a minor thigh injury, while Marouane Fellaini will be out for two months due to a knee injury.
Meanwhile, up front, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been of action since being substituted at half time in the Boxing Day clash against Burnley after he also suffered a recurrence of his knee injury. Marcus Rashford has also been out of action with a knock.
However, all four returned to first team training today, and could be in contention to return to the squad for the Champions League tie, or this weekends huge Premier League encounter against Chelsea.
United were also boosted at the weekend with the return of Eric Bailly who has been out since mid November, also with a knee injury.
