But they will have some of their firepower back against the Premier League leaders.

Rashford has been out of action since United’s FA Cup semi-final win against Coventry at Wembley, missing three games as a consequence.

The England international has not captured his best form in 2023-24, scoring eight goals in all competitions compared to 30 last term.

But he will be hoping to end the season on a high as United battle for a spot in Europe next season having fallen into the grasp of Newcastle and Chelsea.

Martinez’s return is arguably an even bigger boost for the Manchester club.

Erik ten Hag has struggled without many of his senior centre-backs recently and reports revealed Jonny Evans played against Palace despite not being fully fit.

The Argentina international has been out with a calf strain since March and had already missed 30 games this season due to a foot injury.

A win against Arsenal would send a much-needed wave of relief over the Old Trafford crowd but they are facing an Arsenal side who are determined to take Manchester City all the way in the title race.

United currently sit eighth in the table, six points off fifth-placed Tottenham.
