Manchester United Confirm Major Double Injury Boost as Key Players Return to Full Fitness Ahead of Upcoming Arsenal Fixture

Manchester United has received a significant boost ahead of their upcoming clash with Arsenal, as Lisandro Martinez and Marcus Rashford have returned to training with the first team. The duo’s potential availability for Sunday’s Premier League match at Old Trafford is a positive development for the Red Devils.

Martinez, a defender who joined United from Ajax nearly two years ago, has been sidelined since the 1-1 draw against Brentford on March 30 due to a knee injury followed by a calf problem. This season, he has been limited to just 11 appearances across all competitions due to various injury setbacks, including a foot issue earlier in the campaign.

The Argentine’s absence has been felt in United’s defensive setup, given his skill in playing the ball out from the back. His return could bolster the team’s defensive solidity and distribution capabilities.

On the attacking front, Marcus Rashford has also resumed training after missing the last three matches due to a knock sustained during the FA Cup semi-final against Coventry City. His presence adds depth and versatility to United’s attacking options, potentially providing a boost in their pursuit of victory against Arsenal.

Manager Erik ten Hag is expected to provide further updates on Martinez and Rashford’s fitness during his pre-match press conference, offering insights into whether they will feature in the crucial fixture against the Gunners. With United eager to return to winning ways following recent setbacks, the return of these key players comes as a welcome development for the team and its supporters.
