Eric Ten Haag handed significant double injury boost ahead of top four run-in

Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay have returned to training in preparation for their remaining Premier League games after spending time on the sidelines due to injury.

Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay have resumed training after recovering from injuries, providing a much-needed boost for the team in the final matches of the season.

This follows reports that Raphael Varane has also resumed training after a minor scare. The French central defender had just returned from a foot injury but was replaced by captain Harry Maguire in what has been described as a ‘precautionary measure’.

Their return comes at a crucial point in the season, with Manchester United ahead of Liverpool by one point in the race for Champions League qualification.

Despite having a strong season, Rashford has struggled with a few injury setbacks. The 25-year-old is United’s top scorer with 29 goals in all competitions making this his most prolific season at the club.

Though he was unable to participate in the recent victory against Wolves, it appears likely that he will be available for the upcoming match against Bournemouth on Saturday but Ten Hag has been reluctant to reveal what had caused the winger’s absence.

Speaking about Rashford, Ten Hag said: “I can’t tell in this moment and as I say, it’s not my focus point in this moment. I hope [he will be back soon]. Of course. And he will do everything that can be done.”

“The medical staff is working hard on it, but I am focused, and my team are focusing, on this game.”

Despite success in the form of a Carabao Cup win, Ten Hag has described qualification to the Champions League this season as being vital to the club’s long-term prospects and will hope for no more injuries in the quest for qualification.
