Manchester United injury news: Fellaini, Jones and Valencia could all return for Liverpool Europa League clash

8 Mar

Despite Manchester United suffering their first defeat in five games when they were beaten 1-0 by West Brom on Sunday, things are looking up ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash with Liverpool.


The Red Devils had as many as 15 players residing in the treatment room only two weeks ago but that number has more than halved since.

Chris Smalling and Matteo Darmian both returned to the starting line-up for Sunday’s defeat, while Adnan Januzaj has been playing in the under-21s since his injury – where he scored twice on Monday.

Marouane Fellaini, Phil Jones and Antonio Valencia are all in full training and could feature against Liverpool.

Jones could be set to partner Chris Smalling at centre-back with Daley Blind visibly in need of a rest as he is the only player to play every minute of every game since October.

Teenage sensation Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has been out with a knock and could return for the game at Anfield, although the FA Cup tie with West Ham on the weekend is more likely.

In terms of long-term absentees, Wayne Rooney was pictured without his knee brace for the first time on Monday while Luke Shaw’s rehabilitation appears ahead of schedule and he should return before the end of the season.
