Marcus Rashford has returned to training ahead of must-win clash

Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, has confirmed a significant injury boost ahead of the team's Premier League clash against Bournemouth. This news comes at a crucial time as the Red Devils are currently winless in their last three league games and are looking to bounce back against the Cherries.

In an encouraging development for Manchester United fans and sports betting enthusiasts alike, Ten Hag revealed that star player Marcus Rashford has returned to training following an injury sustained last weekend. The Englishman will be assessed after today's training session but is likely to make the matchday squad for the upcoming game against Bournemouth.

This could potentially be a game-changer for United who suffered a shocking 3-0 loss to Bournemouth in their previous encounter at home.

Cherries surprisingly will be more confident this time around

However, even with Rashford’s potential return, it won't be an easy encounter for Manchester United. They face another tough hurdle as they prepare to take on one of the in-form teams in the Premier League - Bournemouth.

The South Coast outfit is currently enjoying a three-match winning streak at home and will undoubtedly pose a significant challenge for Ten Hag's team.

Currently sitting 11 points adrift from the top four of Premier League table, it is imperative that Manchester United return to winning ways soon if they hope to close this gap. This makes their upcoming clash with Bournemouth all the more critical.

United desperately need win to close the gap on top four

The Red Devils must bring their best performance on matchday if they wish not only secure victory but also regain momentum in their campaign towards securing a spot among Premier League’s top four teams.

While this fixture promises plenty of excitement for sports fans and betting enthusiasts alike due its high stakes nature and potential impact on league standings, Cherries serves as a crucial test for Manchester United. With Rashford potentially back in the squad and the team's determination to bounce back from their recent slump, this clash against Bournemouth could be a turning point in their season.
