Manchester United could be boosted by the return of England trio Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw and Jadon Sancho for the trip to Crystal Palace… as they look to ensure Europa League football next season
- Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw and Jadon Sancho all returned to full team training
- The trio should be back in contention for Man United’s final game of the season
- The Red Devils will make the trip away to Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon
Manchester United trio Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw and Jadon Sancho are set to be back in contention for their final day of the season clash with Crystal Palace.
The England stars all returned to full first-team training on Tuesday and could be available for interim boss Ralf Rangnick for the trip to Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon.
It boosts Rangnick’s options for the clash, in which United need a win to guarantee Europa League football next season with West Ham United just behind in seventh place.

Shaw has played just 45 minutes for United in the last two-and-a-half months after having metal bolts removed from the double leg break he sustained against PSV Eindhoven in September 2015.
The 26-year-old underwent surgery last month and two weeks ago stepped up his recovery with individual sessions at United’s Carrington training complex.
But he could now return to give them a stronger option at left-back for the final day of the season.

Rangnick will also have more forward options at his disposal with wide forwards Sancho and Rashford also returning to training.
Winger Sancho has recovered from tonsillitis after missing games against Chelsea, Brentford and Brighton as he had to wait for the inflammation to subside before having his tonsils removed.
Rashford was absent for the 4-0 thrashing at Brighton & Hove Albion due to bronchitis but the forward could also return – although he has appeared out of favour under Rangnick.
Incoming United boss Erik ten Hag will also be pleased as he could potentially get to chance to assess the trio alongside other players he will be keen to look at before he takes over the reins.
The Dutchman could be in the stands for the final day of the season clash at Selhurst Park.
