Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani is in line to return from injury against Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

The Uruguayan, 34, has missed United’s last four games in all competitions with a muscle injury but trained with his side on Tuesday ahead of the trip to Selhurst Park.

United, who have not scored in their last two games, then visit league leaders Manchester City in the derby on Sunday, before hosting AC Milan in the first leg of the Europa League last-16 tie next Thursday.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “We’ve had a training session this morning. Of course it was a light one.

“We’re looking OK. There’s a couple of doubts for tomorrow that we have to give as much time as possible.

“Edinson trained, he joined in so that’s good. Let’s hope there’s no reaction after the session. Hopefully he will travel with the squad.”

Solskjaer added he had a “couple of doubts” over some other players, but confirmed Paul Pogba is yet to return to training.

“Paul is still not ready for us,” Solskjaer said. “He is feeling better, [but] not been training with the team yet so he is definitely not travelling London bound.”

Solskjaer is hopeful long-term knee injury absentee Phil Jones, who last played in the FA Cup fourth-round win at Tranmere in January 2020, could return this season.
