Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot has returned to training after suffering a hamstring injury.
Dalot was injured in the first half of United’s Carabao Cup game against Charlton Athletic last month.
However, according to Manchester Evening News, the right-back could play against Crystal Palace this weekend.
United midfielder Bruno Fernandes said: “Diogo is also training with us and will probably be fully fit again soon and that’s really good because the manager has more options.”
Dalot started the season impressively and played a prominent role for Erik ten Hag’s side.

After suffering a hamstring injury while representing Portugal at the World Cup, Dalot was unavailable when United’s season resumed.
He eventually returned to action against Bournemouth on January 3 but has not played since the game against Charlton on January 10. Dalot’s last start for United in the Premier League was against Aston Villa in November.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been promoted for United in Dalot’s absence so it could be an exciting battle between the two for a regular starting spot.

With the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Europa League fixtures coming up, both players should have plenty of options.
United are currently fourth in the Premier League, eleven points behind leaders Arsenal, who have played a game more.
Dalot watched from the box at Old Trafford as United sealed their place in the Carabao Cup final with a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest.
The 23-year-old will be looking to win his first title as a United player in the final against Newcastle.
