Man Utd duo drop positive injury updates in boost for Erik ten Hag

Manchester United have been handed a double injury boost in the lead-up to their clash against Brighton.

The Red Devils have had a frustrating start to the season, losing to both Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal, which has seen them drop into the bottom half of the Premier League table.

Erik ten Hag will be hoping new signings Sofyan Amrabat and Sergio Reguilon will help add stability to his midfield and back line.

And in another boost for the United boss, midfield duo Kobbie Mainoo and Amad Diallo could return to the squad soon after they posted encouraging updates on social media.

Mainoo, 18, sustained an ankle injury during United's pre-season tour of the United States. The midfielder impressed Ten Hag and was awarded a start against Real Madrid at the NRG Stadium in Texas.

Unfortunately, the teenager was on the pitch for less than five minutes before he had to be replaced by Christian Eriksen and he could be seen leaving Old Trafford on crutches after the game.

However, the Englishman has since shared an update on his recovery. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, Mainoo uploaded a picture of himself in full United kit, accompanied by a clock emoji, suggesting it might not be long before he's back.

Ten Hag was asked about Mainoo's progress before United's defeat to Tottenham last month. The Red Devils boss said: "Not at this moment available, but I think he will in two months he will be available, for winter is coming up he will absolutely have his games."

Meanwhile, Diallo has also provided an update on his recovery after he picked up a knee injury during pre-season.

The 20-year-old winger posted a picture of his knee on Instagram, accompanied by the caption: "Step by step".
