Both players hinted at a return on social media at the weekend by posting highlight reels with the emojis “🔋⌛️”.

“It was more for myself for personal use but it was quite good and I thought I’d share it with Instagram followers.

“I’m back now training - it’s been a good week and a long time coming but we’re there!”

Wilson has been absent since injuring his calf against Manchester United in December, while Trippier has not kicked a ball since going off with a broken foot against Aston Villa in February.
