Herrera and Rafael give Man Utd boost after returning from injury

by Sam Peoples

Ander Herrera and Rafael returned from injury this week in Manchester United’s 4-2 win over Bury in a game behind closed doors.

While it isn’t known how long either player featured for, it’s great news they were fit enough to play and puts them in contention for United’s match against QPR this weekend.

Both players have been sorely missed by Louis van Gaal‘s side as Darren Fletcher has been unable to offer as much as the Spaniard while the likes of Valencia and Young simply aren’t good enough in the right-back position.

Whether or not Van Gaal considers the game this weekend too soon for both or either player to start, it won’t be long before they return to 100% match fitness and are back in the starting XI.

The start to United’s season has been very poor with no wins in four games but Van Gaal hasn’t been helped by a plethora of injuries that has forced him to keep changing his side.

Now, with most of his first-team squad back in contention, the game against QPR could be where United start to play the sort of quality football they showed in pre-season.
