Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford took part in full training on Friday.
He did this for the first time since having shoulder surgery.
The 23-year-old England international has not played since coming on as a substitute in July’s Euro 2020 final.
He had been troubled by the shoulder problem for months and had an operation at the start of August.
“Marcus trained fully for the first time today with contact,” United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.
“There were a few tackles flying in on him but he seemed OK, which was nice to see.”
Solskjaer hopes to have the Rashford back for the clash with Leicester after the international break.
