Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has been given a double dose of positive injury news ahead of Thursday's Europa League clash with Real Betis. The Red Devils may not be at full strength, however, after Antony missed training on Wednesday morning.
Ten Hag may look to rotate when his side travel to Spain after a convincing 4-1 victory in the first leg. Having chosen his best XI, United put on a second-half clinic with goals from Antony, Bruno Fernandes and Wout Weghorst, who joined Marcus Rashford on the scoresheet.
It remains to be seen whether United take their foot off the gas in the second leg with a place in the Europa League quarter-finals at stake. It would take a monumental effort for Betis - led by former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini - to overturn a three-goal deficit, even on home turf.
Ten Hag was handed a double injury boost on Wednesday as Victor Lindelof and Marcel Sabitzer both returned to training.
Neither player started in the first leg but both would be towards the front of the queue in terms of rotation options - many of which could be given a run-out in Spain. Lindelof has seen plenty of action in the Europa League this term and his presence would allow Lisandro Martinez or Raphael Varane to rest.
Sabitzer missed the first leg of the Europa League [knockout round play-off against Barcelona through suspension, while he was left untouched on the bench for the reverse fixture. Like Lindelof, however, he could be selected against Betis with United comfortably in the lead.
Alejandro Garnacho won't be in the picture after suffering an ankle injury against the Saints, which looks set to keep him out for several weeks. "It is difficult to put into words how I’m feeling right now," he wrote on Instagram.
"Unfortunately I will not be able to help my team and team mates in the upcoming games in what is a very important part of the season for us at Manchester United. God has taught me to never give up and I will make sure I am back stronger than ever!"
