Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has returned to training after missing this round of international matches due to injury.
According to the club’s official website, Rashford returned to Carrington for a light training session.
United’s top scorer was injured in the 3-1 FA Cup win over Fulham, securing his second trip to Wembley this season, this time against Brighton and Hove Albion in the semi-finals.
Rashford was called up by Gareth Southgate for England’s double header against Italy and Ukraine, but was forced to withdraw due to a knockout.
On Monday, the forward trained separately from the main group, and his training did not include working with the ball.
It remains unclear whether Rashford will be ready for the crucial game against Newcastle at the weekend.
United are just three points ahead of Eddie Howe’s men, who will also avenge their defeat in the League Cup final a month ago.
A win would be a huge boost to United’s top four aspirations, and a defeat would bring them back to the dog’s fear of relegation.
Rashford’s fitness will play a key role in United’s top four, as he has been the leader of Ten Haga’s attack this season.
The 25-year-old has scored 27 goals in all competitions for United this season, making him the club’s top scorer by a significant margin.
Marcus also scored a killer second goal in United’s final win over Newcastle at Wembley.
Eric ten Haag is expected to provide an update on Rashford’s fitness at his press conference later this week.
