Manchester United team news: Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial return but Harry Maguire is injured

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have returned to training at Manchester United but Harry Maguire has been ruled out of Sunday’s derby through injury.

Rashford missed United’s Europa League games against Real Sociedad and Sheriff Tiraspol with a muscle injury that also ruled him out of contention for a recall with England but could be in line for a return against Manchester City.

Martial is also close to recovering from an Achilles injury but Erik ten Hag will not be able to visit captain Maguire at the Etihad after suffering a hamstring problem during the international break.

“The situation is that Harry Maguire is injured,” Ten Hag said.

“I think for the rest we have some doubts about Anthony Martial but he’s been training with the group all week so I’m really happy with this situation. Rashford is back in training, we’re happy with that too and by the way only long-term injuries like Axel Tuanzebe and Brandon Williams.”

Maguire was unlikely to feature in Sunday’s derby even if he was fit after losing his starting place under Ten Hag, but the United manager backed his captain after criticizing his performances in England.

“First of all, of course, I have to train him, I have to support him, but I support him because I believe in him,” stressed Ten Hag.

“During the time I worked with him the pre-season was good, really good, the training and the games so he was out but that also has to do with the centre-backs playing now.

“Even after he wasn’t in the team, he trained very well and the quality was there. You see his career, almost 50 caps for England, for Leicester and Man United, he’s playing really well.

“What you see is high potential and it’s not about him – in the dressing room the coaches, the players, believe in him. I told him that, I’m sure he can do it and I’m convinced of that.” Manchester United team news: Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial return but Harry Maguire is injured
