Manchester United handed injury boost ahead of Liverpool clash, following news of Marcos Rojo’s return to action ahead of their Saturday tie.
Manchester United hope Argentina full-back Marcos Rojo will be fully fit for their Saturday clash against Liverpool as the defender resumed full training during the week.
Rojo, who was sidelined for three months this season due to an injury problem, has featured in just three matches for the Red Devils since January. The 27-year-old last featured for the 20-time Premier League Champions in their 2-0 victory over League minnows Huddersfield.
The unfortunate injury he picked up in the latter stages of the game effectively ruled him out of United’s Champion league clash against Sevilla and he was also not available for selection when José Mourinho’s men defeated their rivals, Chelsea, last weekend.

According to ESPN, Rojo who has just returned to the team’s training ground could be in contention for a place in Mourinho’s starting lineup when United lock horns with Liverpool on March 10 in a game which will go a long way to determine who will be in the second position behind Manchester City.
