Manchester Reds lock horns this weekend. In this article we look at the observations made at Carrington training facility of united.
Less than a day after defeating Chelsea, Red Devils who didn’t start Wednesday night’s match seemed to be part of Thursday’s light training session at Carrington. It meant that only people who left the bench or didn’t participate at all did so.
Having said that, here are observations that were made during Thursday’s training session at MEN Sport.
Raphael Varane’s name was absent from the squad sheet on Wednesday night. And United claimed that he missed the match against Chelsea due to a “sore back.” Even though he hasn’t been in Red Devils first-choice starting lineup lately. He has been a consistent reserve, so there were some eyebrows raised by his midweek absence. United, meanwhile, argued that a back problem prevented him from playing. He did, however, practice on Thursday and is expecting to be considered for the match against Bournemouth.
Amad Recovery for Manchester Reds
Winger Amad was photographed participating in a Red Devils first-team training session. For the first time since suffering a knee injury in pre-season. He has been working on an individual rehabilitation programme in recent months, but his participation in Thursday’s session suggests a return may not be too far away. Pictured in the red bib, he was donning a huge smile. Appearing as though he was delighted to be back on the grass and among his teammates after a lengthy period on the sidelines.
Red devil Rashford
Marcus Rashford was on the pitch on Thursday for training. After coming off the bench in the closing minutes of the victory over Chelsea. It was fair that he was benched for the midweek match following a subpar performance against Newcastle. Now, he has to put in a lot of effort to regain his spot, however it might not be easy to remove Alejandro Garnacho from the left flank. In training, he appeared content, wearing a broad smile for the Red Devils.
