Erik ten Hag confirms two Man Utd stars have returned to training but one big doubt

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has revealed that Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof have reported for training ahead of the final game of the Premier League season at Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Red Devils returned to winning ways with a 3-2 victory over Newcastle United last night. The result put them level on points with the Magpies in seventh, but the latter have a superior goal difference.

United’s chances of qualifying for the Europa Conference League depend on Newcastle dropping points this weekend.

Ahead of the trip to face Brighton on Sunday, Ten Hag has provided some good news on the injury front.

He told “We have seen yesterday Licha Martinez [is back] – he had a good session now as well.”

“There were also others on the pitch like Rapha Varane, Victor Lindelof – they returned on the pitch. We have to see how far [off a return] they are on Sunday.

“Tomorrow we have off – Saturday we have training and then we will see what we have.”

Ten Hag revealed that Harry Maguire could be available for the FA Cup final, but Luke Shaw is a major doubt after a setback in his recovery.

He added: “I think Harry Maguire, I think it’s a fair chance that he will be available. We plan [for] him.”

“Luke is more complicated. Let’s say it’s a less chance that he will make it. But there is still a very small, reduced chance.

“He had a setback – now we have to find out how far [from a return] he is.”

United have had a disappointing campaign but they could end the season on a high note.

They could book a place in Europe through their league position or by winning the FA Cup final.

United would secure a second major trophy under Ten Hag if they beat Manchester City at Wembley Stadium.

A win over their arch-rivals would guarantee a spot in the Europa League group stage.
