Man United will welcome three players back into the fold ahead of the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Manchester United have just one game left this season; the FA Cup final.

Erik ten Hag may or may not be fighting for his job in that game, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS potentially eyeing other names to fulfil that role over the summer…

Beating Manchester City is never easy, even with a full complement of players available. Ten Hag has been competing with one hand tied behind his back for large portions of this season on that front, though he has welcomed some players back recently.

Lisandro Martinez and Marcus Rashford were back in training last week, ahead of the Brighton game. They have since been joined by a further three first-teamers.

It’s the Daily Mail’s Chris Wheeler with the scoop, with the journalist confirming a triple injury boost for United. Apparently, all of Mason Mount, Anthony Martial and Victor Lindelof are back in training ahead of the Wembley showpiece.

At this stage, it’s unclear whether any of these guys will be fit enough to play their part.

Mount likely has the best chance, given the fact his injury was only a shorter-term one. United are also somewhat light in midfield as things stand.

Then we have Lindelof, who has been out for multiple months, though again, the centre-back slot is a position where United have been really scraping the barrel of late. I’d be surprised if the Ice Man is thrust straight back into the XI, though he has a great chance at making the bench.

Martial is the long shot. It is common knowledge he will be leaving the club this summer upon the expiry of his contract, though a lack of any fitness whatsoever probably rules him out completely.

Do you think any of these guys will be fit enough to make the squad? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
