Ashley Young has handed Manchester United an injury boost ahead of Thursday’s clash against Liverpool.

The Red Devils winger has been sidelined since United’s 1-0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League on 17 January.

Young had established himself as a regular in Louis van Gaal’s side at left-back before his injury following Luke Shaw’s leg break at the start of the season.

However, the 30-year-old could be in line to feature for the 20-time English champions against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Thursday night.

Young posted the above photo from United’s session and wrote a message dedicated to Red Devils supporters: “I’ve missed this ⚽, so good to be back out with the lads #mufc”

Liverpool kept a fourth successive clean sheet in the first leg – one more in the second leg and they will match Napoli’s Europa League record for successive games without conceding.
