Lindelof has missed four games since being replaced against Norwich, having had issues with his breathing.
Thankfully, the issue which forced him off did not turn out to be anything serious but then he had Covid which kept him out as well.
Now, the Sweden captain is back to bolster Rangnick’s defensive options for the game, with Eric Bailly having jetted off to the Africa Cup of Nations.
Cristiano Ronaldo was also in training and posted a brief message on his Instagram page ahead of the game.
There have been rumours of discontent in the United ranks but Ronaldo was all smiles alongside Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles.
This was the first time that Lindelof has been spotted since that 1-0 win at Carrow Road, and it remains to be seen if Rangnick throws him straight back in.
