Man Utd receive triple injury boost ahead of Bayern Munich clash as Sofyan Amrabat update given
| Last updated
Manchester United have received a positive injury update for three of their players ahead of their Champions League clash against Bayern Munich.
Meanwhile, UTDDistrict claimed youngster Kobbie Mainoo, who was a star of the club's pre-season, was back on grass, taking part in a “light running exercise” in United training this morning.
Should the trio's return to training be accurate, it will come as a huge relief to Erik ten Hag and his staff.
United have endured a litany of injuries in the early stages of the campaign.
On Monday it emerged that defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka was set for a period on the sidelines after sustaining an unspecified injury, with initial indications suggesting the 25-year-old would be out for several weeks.
Meanwhile United are still without defenders Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia, while Sofyan Amrabat arrived at the club on transfer deadline day with a back problem. The BBC's Simon Stone confirmed the Morocco international was training away from the main group on Tuesday.
In addition, Jadon Sancho is training away from the first team after a public fall out with Erik ten Hag, while winger Antony has been given time off to address assault allegations made by former partners. The Brazilian has vehemently denied all allegations.
United's dismal start to the new season continued on Saturday as the club lost to Brighton for the fourth top-flight game in a row.
For the first time in 34 years, the club have lost three of their first five league games of a season.
Nevertheless, after the 3-1 defeat Erik ten Hag insisted United were not in crisis.
The former Ajax boss told Sky Sports: "We must stick together and stick to the plan and the rules and we will turn this around.
"It bothers me [the form], but I have to see the way we play. It's about character, we have to see how strong we are and how the team sticks together. Players standing up and showing character because in all the games, especially the game today [Saturday] and against Arsenal and Forest, we have seen we can play well and create chances.
"But we also have some improvements to make and we have to step up."
