Mason Mount

Mason Mount is closing in on a return to action for Manchester United after stepping up his recovery from injury.

The 24-year-old has not featured for the Red Devils since picking up an injury in a 2-0 defeat at Tottenham on August 19, but was pictured in training last week and his condition is steadily improving.

He could now make his comeback in tomorrow night’s Carabao Cup clash with Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

Harry Maguire is also pushing to play after returning to training following a recent injury.

The centre-back has missed United’s last two matches due to injury, but is back with the first-team squad.
