Manchester United are back in action this weekend after the latest international break and are getting ready to face Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester at the King Power Stadium.
Earlier this week, there have been reports of Marcus Rashford’s potential return from injury after missing all of Manchester United’s games so far. The 23-year-old has been on the sidelines since this summer’s European Championship after having surgery on a troublesome shoulder injury after the tournament.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now confirmed that the tricky winger is set to make a return to Manchester United’s matchday squad against Leicester this weekend.
“He’s in the squad, if he’s gonna start or not, I can’t tell you now,” Solskjaer said on Rashford’s return according to the Manchester Evening News. “He’s worked really hard throughout the lay-off. Been really bright this week and had a 60-min involvement behind closed doors last week, so he’s raring to go.”
There is also a positive update on Harry Maguire, who has returned to training. The United skipper has been ruled out since being substituted against Aston Villa on September 25 but could be set to give Solskjaer a much-needed boost after Raphael Varane was ruled out earlier this week.
“Harry’s joined us on the grass this morning,” Solskjaer is quoted as saying. “That’s the first time he’s been on the grass. Amad first time on the grass as well. So we look quite strong.”
