Mason Mount returns to Manchester United training after four months out

Man United handed Mason Mount boost ahead of Crystal Palace clash

Manchester United midfielder Mason Mount has returned to training for the first time in four months, according to an update on the club’s official website.

The England international last featured for the Red Devils in the 1-0 win against Luton Town in November when he picked up a calf problem, and manager Erik ten Hag will be glad to have him back.

Mount joined Man United from Chelsea last summer but has featured in just 12 games across all competitions, weighing in with one assist.

United returns to action when they host Liverpool in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Sunday, but it remains to be seen whether the 25-year-old will be included in the matchday squad.

However, Mount is expected to be available for selection after the international break, with Man United travelling to face Brentford on March 30.

The midfielder has returned to fitness at the right time, as the Red Devils need their top players available as we approach the business end of the campaign.

They are sixth in the Premier League table, eight points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa with ten games remaining.

They cannot afford to drop any more points if they want to play in the Champions League next term.

Finishing fifth could also see them qualify for the elite European competition provided England’s coefficient ranking is higher than Germany or Italy at the end of the season.

England are currently behind Germany and Italy, but statisticians Opta expect England to have more coefficient points by the end of the season, which would be good news for Man United.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire and Rasmus Hojlund are also expected to return from injury ahead of the Liverpool game.
