Marcus Rashford and three other Man United players back in training

Marcus Rashford was declared out for “a few games” after sustaining a groin injury in United’s 2-0 victory against Everton on April 8.

In a significant boost for their journey to Sevilla for the second leg of their Europa League quarterfinal, Marcus Rashford and three other members of the Manchester United first squad resumed training on Wednesday.

Although not considered to be a major injury, Marcus Rashford’s performance this year has increased his significance to United considerably, and his 28 goals in all competitions this year are already by far his finest season.

There is a chance he might play at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Thursday, which would be a welcome respite for Manchester United and manager Erik ten Hag after his absence.

Two bizarre own goals late in the game allowed Jose Luis Mendilibar’s team to recover a 2-2 draw that never seemed likely given the hosts’ domination in the first of the two games Marcus Rashford missed.

On Wednesday, the training field saw the return of Luke Shaw, Marcel Sabitzer, and Tyrell Malacia, who scored one of those own goals against Sevilla.

Luke Shaw has been sidelined ever since suffering an unidentified injury during the 1-0 victory over Brentford on April 5.

Luke Shaw has frequently stepped in at center defense this season, so his return would be especially welcome with the news that Lisandro Martinez will miss the remainder of the season due to a metatarsal injury.

After he abruptly withdrew from the starting lineup for Sunday’s game against Nottingham Forest, Marcel Sabitzer’s problem was also kept from the media.

Marcel Sabitzer was responsible for both of Man United’s goals against Sevilla in the first leg, but given the excellent caliber of play put up by Christian Eriksen in his stead during the 2-0 triumph at the City Ground, it might be challenging for him to make a comeback on Thursday.
