Big Marcus Rashford update as Newcastle United’s rivals Manchester United welcome four stars back to training

Newcastle United’s Premier League top four rivals Manchester United have been handed an injury boost.

Marcus Rashford is among four Manchester United players to return to training ahead of Thursday’s night clash against La Liga outfit Sevilla.

Rashford, who is the Red Devils’ top scorer this campaign with 28 goals in all competitions, has missed the last two matches after picking up an injury in the 2-0 win over Everton.

The England international watched as his side surrendered a two-goal lead to draw the first leg of their Europea League quarter-final clash versus Sevilla. He also sat out of Sunday’s win at Nottingham Forest.

He could, however, return tomorrow night after training with his teammates. Marcel Sabitzer, Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia, who didn’t feature at the weekend, were also spotted taking part.

The imminent return of Rashford will come as a major boost for Erik ten Hag’s side, who are looking to book their place in the last four of the Europa League. They also play in the FA Cup semi-final against Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday.

Man United are also rivalling Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur for a place in the Premier League top four. Their win at Forest lifted them three points above Eddie Howe’s men.

The Magpies and Spurs face each other at St James’ Park on Sunday afternoon (kick-off 4:30pm).
