Man Utd handed big injury boost for Manchester derby?
Manchester United have been handed a big injury boost for the Manchester derby next month, according to ESPN.
The Red Devils made a poor start to the season with back-to-back losses, but they have since won five of their next six games.
This includes four successive wins in the Premier League, and they will be eyeing a fifth against Manchester City next month.
Ahead of the game, they have been handed a timely boost with Rashford likely to recover from his recent muscle injury.
The England star sustained the problem during the 3-1 win over Arsenal this month, and he has since missed two matches.
Erik ten Hag clarified that the setback was only minor, and United hope to have him in the squad to face the Cityzens.
While Rashford is likely to make the game, the signs are not positive regarding Anthony Martial for the derby.
The Frenchman picked up an Achilles injury against Liverpool in August, and it appears the problem is more serious.
