The French striker is set to leave United at the end of the season

Manchester United’s most recent training session on Thursday morning included two players who were returning from injury.

The return of Anthony Martial and Jonny Evans has bolstered the Reds’ roster as they get ready for Monday night’s Premier League encounter against Crystal Palace.

The seasoned duo participated in first-team drills in front of our cameras, and they intend to contribute in the final stretch, which includes four league games and the Emirates FA Cup final against Manchester City.

Since the 4 April loss to Chelsea, Evans has been sidelined due to what was termed as a minor issue.

In the 4-3 loss, Willy Kambwala replaced the 36-year-old, who had entered the game as a substitute, after just 21 minutes of play in the second half at Stamford Bridge.

Following surgery to address a groyne issue in January, Martial has not featured in any training sessions or matches.

Anthony Martial’s last Manchester United appearance

The striker’s last appearance was in the 9 December loss to Bournemouth. He netted in our Carabao Cup win at Old Trafford against Palace previously in the season.

Injuries also affect Marcus Rashford, Willy Kambwala, Raphael Varane, Tyrell Malacia (knee), and Victor Lindelof (hamstring).

But Martial, 28, and Evans, 36, have contracts expiring next month. After nine years with United, Martial will almost certainly leave the club, although Evans, who renewed his contract for his boyhood club after being released by Leicester City, has made a respectable 14 starts so far this season.

In the last three games, Harry Maguire has been Ten Hag’s only senior centre defender available since Kambwala’s injury on the day of the FA Cup semifinal against Coventry City.
