Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay return to training for Man Utd

Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay are back in training for Manchester United after being absent from recent games.

Erik ten Hag’s side are preparing to face Bournemouth on Saturday and have received a massive boost with the duo’s return

Rashford is the club’s talisman, bagging 29 goals and nine assists this season. He will be hoping to hit the 30-goal mark.

The 25-year-old has already broken his record for most goals in a campaign and can reach the much-heralded 30-goal tally with three games left this season.

Rashford has been dealing with a leg injury that kept him out of their 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend. He was kicking the ball and moving freely today.

McTominay is trying to shake off an injury he sustained in United’s 2-0 over Everton on April 8. The Scotland international scored in that game but has been out since.

Saturday’s game might be too early for McTominay after the lengthy lay-off, but there is a chance he can still feature for his boyhood club this term.

United need two wins from their final three Premier League games to secure a place in the top four. They are chasing a spot in the Champions League with Liverpool breathing down their neck.

Liverpool have won their last seven consecutive games and are only one point behind United having played one more game.

United go into Saturday’s fixture looking over their shoulders but will fancy themselves against the Cherries.

However, their recent away record makes for grim reading. They have only won one of their last five games on the road.

United will aim to improve that record at the Vitality Stadium against a Bournemouth side that has secured their Premier League survival.

United will be out for three points as they are desperate to finish such a promising campaign without Champions League football.
