MARCUS RASHFORD looked sharp in training this week following an operation on his shoulder.
The forward, 23, had surgery on an injury in July, which kept him out for the beginning of the season.
But he was spotted looking fit and healthy as United trained for the first time since their shock Champions League defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.
Rashford has enjoyed a quick recovery having been expected to return in late October.
The England forward decided to undergo an operation after Euro 2020 came to an end, with Rashford determined to help England and Gareth Southgate at the tournament.
He had been playing with a muscle tear in his shoulder since last November.
And he has timed his return to action well, with Ole Gunnar Solskajer currently without Edinson Cavani.
The Red Devils boss confirmed earlier this week that the Uruguayan is likely to be out for one-two weeks – but would not reveal his injury.

Rashford, however, is not match fit, so is perhaps unlikely to start against West Ham at the weekend.
But with Cristiano Ronaldo and Mason Greenwood in fine form – and Jadon Sancho and Anthony Martial also available – United certainly do not lack firepower up-front.
But Rashford will be keen to return to action and if he comes through training unscathed on Friday he could get his first minutes of the season.
Paul Pogba, Harry Maguire and Jesse Lingard were also photographed at Carrington ahead of United’s return to Premier League action.
