A section of the Manchester United supporters are looking forward towards the potential injury comeback of Anthony Martial during this weekend’s Premier League clash against Liverpool at Old Trafford.
Martial has been sidelined for more than six weeks with a thigh problem but he has recently returned to individual training in the bid to step up his fitness.
A report from Sky Sports has now revealed that the Frenchman is expected to return to full training ahead of the forthcoming league game and this has got some of the United fans excited.
Here are some of the reactions on Twitter…

Martial has played no part on the playing field since the end of August and that surely hampers his prospects of starting at the weekend, considering he will be lacking match sharpness after the lengthy layoff.
Nonetheless, the Frenchman could make a short cameo off the bench if required and he offers Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a different option upfront, should Marcus Rashford continue to struggle in the role.
Apart from Martial, Luke Shaw, Paul Pogba and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have been tipped (The Mirror) to make their comebacks from the sidelines when Jurgen Klopp’s side make the trip to Old Trafford on Sunday.
Wan-Bissaka appears the most likely to return to the fold following a bout of tonsillitis and a clearer idea on the fitness of other players should be known in Solskjaer’s press conference in the lead up to the game.
