Martial back in team training

Anthony Martial was looking pleased to be back with the team as Manchester United trained on Monday.

The centre-forward, who has three goals to his name this term, was injured in the win at Everton earlier this month and has been sidelined ever since.

However, he has been working on his return and our photographers captured him out on the Carrington pitch with his team-mates, as the side started preparations for Thursday's game at Real Sociedad.

The players recover from their West Ham exploits and start to look ahead to the crunch Real Sociedad tie…

Martial will hope to feature again soon, and manager Erik ten Hag is likely to provide an update in Wednesday's press conference, in advance of the Europa League tie, which kicks off at 17:45 GMT.

The Frenchman has featured four times this term, and made at least one goal contribution in each of those appearances, with assists versus Liverpool and Everton.

The Reds have four games left before the break for the winter World Cup in Qatar, and the manager recently stressed he hoped Martial would play before the pause for the tournament.

Following the San Sebastian clash, which United need to win by at least two clear goals to top Group E, we have a home Carabao Cup tie with Aston Villa, sandwiched between Premier League away days against the Midlanders and Fulham.
