  • Manchester United returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Brentford on Wednesday night
  • United returned to the top four after the win put them level on points with Newcastle United
  • Erik Ten Hag's men face relegation-threatened Everton next as the league enters its decisive final weeks

Manchester United beat Brentford 1-0 at Old Trafford on Wednesday night to return to winning ways, thanks to a Marcus Rashford striker in the 27th minute.

The last time United won a league game was the 3-0 win over Leicester City on February 19, a week before their 2-0 triumph over Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup final.

At the same time, the Red Devils eased into the FA Cup semi-final with a 3-1 win over Fulham and the UEFA Europa League quarter-final with a 5-1 aggregate win over Real Betis.

Erik Ten Hag's success at the club has been built on the midfield and resurgence of Marcus Rashford, but with seven games of suspension this year for Casemiro due to multiple red cards and a severe injury to Christian Eriksen, it has been quite a challenging ride, according to talkSPORT.

Eriksen returns to full training

The Dane has been out injured since suffering an ankle injury against Reading in the FA Cup and has been a big blow to the team, coupled with Casemiro's suspensions.

The club signed Austrian midfielder Marcel Sabitzer on loan from Bayern Munich until the end of the season to cover for the former Tottenham midfielder.

According to Sun UK, he took part in full training yesterday and is in contention to make the matchday squad for the crucial game against Everton.

Rangnick praises Ten Hag over Sabitzer

Sports Brief reported that former Manchester United boss and Austrian national team coach Ralf Rangnick praised the club for improving Marcel Sabitzer since his move to Old Trafford.

Rangnick highlighted a difference in Sabitzer's confidence since he moved to England compared to when he was at Bayern.

The Red Devils have expressed the desire to make the move permanent, but former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel's appointment at the German club could be a stumbling block.
