Marcus Rashford hands Manchester United massive boost ahead of Man City trip

Marcus Rashford may have handed Manchester United a huge boost in their attempt to beat Manchester City on Sunday after he was seen arriving at Carrington today.

Man United will play visitors to Man City this weekend in what is said to be the first Manchester derby this season.

The Red Devils, who have won their last four Premier League games on a bounce, were poised on facing Pep Guardiola’s men without key player in Rashford.

The England international missed United’s last games against Real Sociedad and Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League due to an injury he suffered against Arsenal.

His lack of fitness also ruled him out of England’s UEFA Nations League games against Italy and Germany.

After he didn’t report to training this week, many outlets described the 24-year-old as a doubt, alongside his attacking partner, Anthony Martial, who last featured for United in August against Liverpool.

However, MEN have reported that the England international was seen arriving at Carrington on Friday morning ahead of United’s trip to Manchester City on Sunday.

Erik ten Hag will have to decide if Marcus Rashford is fit enough to travel with the squad to the other side of Manchester this weekend.

Ten Hag will hold his pre-Man City interview later on Friday and therein, he would give injury updates on Rashford and Martial.

The Manchester United academy graduate won the Premier League Player of the Month award for September, having scored twice and provided two assists in two league matches.

Speaking after he has won the award, Marcus Rashford told Premier League: “My favourite moment from September was probably an assist, actually! [It was for] Antony scoring his first goal on his debut. I think that was a massive moment. It gave us strength and courage.

“It’s still fairly new with the manager and we’ve got much better at doing the things he wants us to. But there are still a lot of steps to take and we’re all looking forward to doing that together.”
