Manchester United handed massive triple injury boost ahead of Sevilla clash

The Red Devils need to win to keep their European dream alive

Manchester United have been handed a massive boost on the injury front as all of Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw and Marcel Sabitzer have travelled to Seville and are in contention to feature against the Spanish side in a must-win game for the Red Devils.

Erik ten Hag’s side looked to be strolling into the last 4 of the Europa League at Old Trafford when they took a 2-0 lead, but a pair of late own goals, first from Tyrell Malacia and then from Harry Maguire, handed the La Liga outfit the initiative heading into the return fixture.

Sabitzer scored both of United’s goals in the first leg, but withdrew from the warm-up over the weekend ahead of their 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

He was replaced by Christian Eriksen, himself making a return from injury, but the Austrian loanee offers Ten Hag a valuable option in his squad once more, with one of the pair likely to partner Casemiro in midfield and being replaced by the other in the second half.

In even better news, both Shaw and Rashford are back after missing the weekend’s action altogether with various injuries.

Shaw has missed the last fortnight since being taken off against Brentford with a knock, while Marcus Rashford appeared to injure his groin against Everton 11 days ago chasing a lofted pass and was quickly replaced.
