Three Man United players have made their return to first-team training, ahead of their Premier League game against Brighton this weekend.

Manchester United have two matches remaining, though only one is meaningful; the FA Cup final.

A victory in that match could well save Erik ten Hag his job, though before that, a trip to Brighton to close out what has been a disastrous Premier League season.

The Red Devils have struggled all term, though injuries certainly haven’t helped their cause. Ten Hag has been missing several key players for prolonged periods of time. Hopefully, that doesn’t happen in 2024/25.

Well, there has been some good news on the injury front today, as United have received a triple boost, with three first-teamers making their training return ahead of Sunday’s game.

The club confirmed that all of Anthony Martial, Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof are back involved in the first-team sessions. The question is, do they have enough time to get fit for the Wembley showpiece?

I’d suggest it’s highly unlikely Martial is involved in any capacity. He’s just missed way too much football to be a contender to play minutes, even off the bench, in the cup final. There are also other preferred options in the attacking third off the bench right now…

Next up, Lindelof. He’s also been out a fair while, though centre-half problems mean he has a chance at featuring. At the end of the day, a half-fit Ice Man will offer more than an out-of-position Casemiro at this stage.

Varane is probably the leading contender to feature out of the three. He’s been out the least amount of time, while he’s probably the best defender at the club when fit. If he can get himself as close to 100% as possible, and give us one more colossal performance, maybe, we have a chance at bringing the cup back to Old Trafford.

Do you think these guys will play any meaningful minutes before the end of the season? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
