His return must be imminant and hopefully he can rediscover his top form with this injury behind him.

He's scored in a behind closed door friendly this afternoon.

Think Ole said he expects him to be available for the Leicester game after the international break.

He's done full contact training sessions and played a game so you'd assume he'll be ready to go.

From some of the training photos that have gone out looks to be in great shape guess he's been hitting the gym while resting his shoulder building up the rest of the body.

When this lad is injury free he's a real difference maker to this side and we've now got the squad where we don't have to play him through injuries.

He'll probably get a few minutes against Leicester City then up his training to be ready to start against Atalanta.

Was good to see him back banged in a great goal which has pretty much been forgotten now.

He seems to have a good link with Lindelof who's able to play those long passes over the top and when he starts from wide he seems to time the runs well to stay onside and the finish was excellant.

He could be a huge player in this coming run his ability to carry the ball in counter attacks at speed is something that has been vital to us in games vs the better sides.

Can't argue with 2 in 2 but he looked rusted, which is understandable. And he was substituted at the right time last night

Let's hope he's fresh and ready to torment the Liverpool defence at the weekend.

Think he's looking sharp certainly with his runs actually had 3 really good chances in the game the one where he slowed down to much and allowed the defender to tackle him it was flagged offside but replays shows he wasn't so had he scored it would have been a goal, he hit the bar then the one he took. Few other half chances as well which he snatched at a bit.

Still working his way back but 2 goals in 2 is great news and the games coming up are normally the ones he delivers in so lets hope he can take Alexander-Arnold to the cleaners again.

I think he'll be fine looked like a dead leg from a tackle that he couldn't shake off those sort of things normally only last 24/48 hours.

That's a hell of a pass! And a great finish. That's 2 great finishes in 2 games now for Rashford.
