While Jose Mourinho never usually needs to find a reason to moan, Manchester United’s injury crisis has proved an ample reason from which to do so.
The Red Devils have seen their squad ripped apart by a series of injuries to some of their top players in recent weeks, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo long-term absentees.
Luke Shaw, who has done little to impress the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ at all this season it seems, recently added to the woe following his foot ligament damage, though there have been some promising reports today.
According to ESPN, United have been handed a major boost ahead of their Europa League semi-final against Celta Vigo this week. The likes of Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling are understood to have trained today, along with Paul Pogba.
That quartet form a huge part of United’s first-team and will undoubtedly give the club a boost as they hunt for the only trophy missing from their illustrious collection.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how Twitter reacted to the injury boost.

Can see Smalling & Jones situation easily turn to disaster were they to play half fit & get injured during match,limiting sub choices. #MUFC

Ecstatic to see Bailly, Smalling, Jones, and Pogba all back at the training ground. Perhaps we aren't totally screwed now! #MUFC
