Manchester United duo Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire return to training for Brighton clash

According to the club’s official website, Manchester United duo Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire have returned to team training sessions in the build-up to their match against Brighton. The Premier League fixture will take place at the Amex Stadium this Saturday when the visitors will look to build on their victory against Brentford.

Wan-Bissaka had missed the previous two matches for Man United with an unknown injury issue. Maguire was in a similar boat, having suffered a knee problem that made him an absentee in our last two games. Luke ShawJadon Sancho and Paul Pogba could miss the rest of this season through their respective injury setbacks.

Fred and Edinson Cavani had returned to contention in our match against the Bees, and they are in line to feature once again for the league fixture against Brighton and Hove Albion. The Red Devils would be boosted by these latest developments, so anything less than a win would be a disappointment after the last result.

As for Graham Potter’s side, they also have some injury concerns to deal with for Saturday’s match. Enock Mwepu is a doubt for the game, while Tariq Lamptey could make it for the league fixture. However, Jakub Moder will be on the stands, having been ruled out for this term.

Can Man Utd make it two wins in succession?

The last time the Manchester side won two games in succession was way back in February, which does not paint a good look on us at all. We must stop that dreadful run and end the season on a high note. That would not be easy with the Seagulls standing in our way.

Potter’s team have overcome their poor run of form, and they have stacked up some wins over the past few weeks. That has seen them get into the top half of the league table, indicating the challenge that awaits us this weekend.

Wan-Bissaka and Maguire’s return would be a boost for Ralf Rangnick indeed, although it would be best to have some stability and stick with the defence from the last game. Shaw, Sancho and Pogba would be missed for sure, as their quality could easily turn the tide in our favour on a good day.

As for Fred and Cavani, they should only be eased into the match as we cannot risk a relapse of their injuries. Hence, they should only come off from the bench rather than start the fixture this weekend.

Lamptey being in contention could be problematic for us looking at how good he has been of late. Moder’s and Mwepu’s absence could play a part in Saturday’s fixture and could potentially lend us a hand to get a win on that day. Whether that will happen, though, remains to be seen.

We have nothing left to play for at this point in the season, as Arsenal could earn a point in the remaining four games to mathematically end our chances for a top-four finish in the league table. However, a win could still give us some morale boost for a fresh start in the next term.
