Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka has returned to training after six weeks out with a hamstring injury.
The defender has not played since the defeat to Brighton in mid-September but he is now expected to be back available for selection within the next 10 days.
United fans on X are delighted that Wan-Bissaka is near to making his comeback and they are keen to see him out on the pitch as soon as possible:

When could Wan-Bissaka make his first-team comeback for United?
The defender won’t be in the squad for the Manchester derby and a return against Newcastle in the Carabao Cup is also out of question.
Wan-Bissaka may have an outside chance of being named on the bench for the match versus Fulham next weekend, but the Champions League group fixture against FC Copenhagen is probably the most likely match for his first game back.
How many other United players are still on the sidelines?
With Wan-Bissaka now training at Carrington, it leaves 5 other players on the treatment table, including Casemiro (ankle), Luke Shaw (muscular), Lisando Martinez (foot), Tyrell Malacia and Amad Diallo (both knee).
There is a possibility that Casemiro could be ready for the derby too so United’s injury list is getting shorter by the day.
