Manchester United winger Marcus Rashford has missed all five games of the season so far after undergoing shoulder surgery over the summer. The 23-year-old struggled with the injury for the majority of last season and went under the knife following his involvement at this summer’s European Championship.
Originally, a three-month recovery program was laid out for the tricky forward but he has been spotted back in training at Carrington, although it is yet unclear whether he is in full training with the rest of his teammates.
He's a few weeks off still and will need to get a few games in behind closed doors hopefully.

His return will be a huge boost to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but the Norwegian manager will have to wait ‘a few weeks’ before Rashford is back in action, according to the player’s agency.
D N May Sports Management, Rashford’s representatives, run by his brothers Dwaine Maynard and Dane Rashford, confirmed on Twitter that the 23-year-old remains on the sidelines for the foreseeable future.
Furthermore, the agency detailed Rashford’s recovery in the hope of some in-house friendlies being arranged before he makes an official return to the squad. Manchester United have already played two behind-closed-doors friendlies this season.
