Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea returned to club training on Thursday, following a minor injury during Spain’s Euro 2020 qualifier clash with Sweden earlier this week.

After appearing to get injured while taking a goal kick, the Spanish player signaled to the bench that he required further medical attention. De Gea was subsequently replaced by Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga. Fortunately for Spain, no further goals were conceded as the game ended in a 1-1 stalemate.

For Manchester United, however, this injury came as much-dreaded news. The Red Devils are set to face Premier League leaders Liverpool at home on Sunday and will be desperate for their number one-choice goalkeeper player to be fit come match day.

Fortunately for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, De Gea began his rehabilitation process on Thursday morning, meaning that there is some hope that he might be fit in time for the much-anticipated clash. Further good news for United is that backup option Sergio Romero is also preparing to start against Liverpool should the need arise.
