Man United’s key man back in training ahead of crunch weekend clash

Posted by

Marcus Rashford of Manchester United has resumed training after missing this round of international competition due to injury.

Rashford is reportedly back at Carrington for some light training, according to the club’s official website.

The 3-1 FA Cup victory over Fulham earned United a second trip to Wembley this season, this time to play Brighton & Hove Albion in the semifinals. However, United’s leading scorer sustained an injury during the match.

Gareth Southgate called up Rashford for England’s doubleheader against Italy and Ukraine, but he was compelled to sit out owing to the injury.

On Monday, the forward worked out separately from the rest of the team and did not incorporate any ball work in his workout.

Rashford’s readiness for this weekend’s crucial match against Newcastle is still unknown.

Eddie Howe’s team, who will also be seeking retribution after losing to United in the Carabao Cup final a month ago, is only three points behind United at the moment.

A victory would be a significant boost to United’s hopes of finishing in the top four, while a loss would put them back in danger of missing out on Champions League qualification.

Rashford, who has been the star of Ten Hag’s attack this season, will be crucial to United’s drive for the top four if he is healthy.

The 25-year-old is the club’s leading scorer by a wide margin with 27 goals this season in all competitions for United.

Marcus added the game-winning second in the United victory over Newcastle in the cup final at Wembley.

Erik ten Hag’s news conference later this week is anticipated to include an update on Rashford’s health.
