Manchester United given injury boost

Ahead of facing Wigan, Manchester United have been handed some good news on the injury front.

Manchester United have been boosted by the return of key stars Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez to training after lengthy injury lay-offs.

Martinez has not played for Manchester United since September due to a foot injury which required surgery, while Casemiro has been out since the start of November due to a hamstring issue. The duo are expected to be available for selection before the end of the month.

United are in the midst of a poor season, with their defeat to Nottingham Forest last time out leaving the Red Devils down in eighth place in the table and a distant 14 points off top spot, but the return of two quality stars should boost their form as we head toward the business end of the campaign.
