Marcus Rashford is set to return from his shoulder injury when Manchester United take on Leicester.

Rashford underwent shoulder surgery after Euro 2020 and not playing in the early part of the season also allowed his left foot to recover.

The Telegraph report that the England star used the time to work on his lower body strength.

He has apparently put on 4kg of muscle in his legs by doing weights sessions while his shoulder was out of action.

Rashford has apparently done some upper body strength work too, and is stronger than ever.

Add that to the fact he is going to be playing pain free for the first time in a long time; two years according to the report.


Rashford has spent long days at the training ground during his recovery, out on the grass and in the gym.

He has apparently done his fitness work between 8am and 6pm on more than one occasion.

That reflects Rashford’s desire to come back in the best possible shape. A fully fit Rashford is an excited prospect.

He has the chance to prove himself as a hugely important player for United now, coming into the side at a point where recent form has been patchy.

Rashford should be mentally fresh as well. He admitted recently that last term was tough for him.

It ended in Europa League and Euro 2020 penalty heartbreak but he has had time to get over that now, and is ready to show off the effects of the fitness work he has been doing during his recovery.
