Manchester United hope to have Raphael Varane back for the midweek derby trip to Liverpool.

Ralf Rangnick has confirmed the Frenchman’s potentially imminent return from a muscle injury as he contends with issues for Edinson Cavani, Scott McTominay, Luke Shaw and Fred.

“I think probably Raphael Varane,” said the interim boss when asked which of the absentees is nearest a return.

“He’s the one who can hopefully come back for at least one of the next two games against Liverpool or Arsenal. With the others, I don’t see them coming back within the next couple of days.”

Saturday’s game against Norwich will come too soon for Varane with United in need of a victory to reinvigorate their hopes of a top-four finish.

“We have to show a reaction,” Rangnick added.

“It’s a question of pride and honour and also a question of character. We have to show that towards our fans. We also have to show that towards ourselves.”
