Fernandes is scheduled to train as normal after being involved in a collision close to United’s Carrington training base on Monday morning. Sources said that no one was injured in the collision involving another vehicle in Dunham, Cheshire. The 27-year-old was able to walk away unhurt.
Ralf Rangnick’s side will take on Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday. When asked about the incident during his prematch news conference the German replied: “He’s training alongside the team. The accident occurred on the way to Carrington, but no one was hurt.
“He was able to train with the team and was fine. “
The Liverpool clash is the start of a crucial three-game run for United, who play Arsenal on Saturday before a home game against Chelsea on April 28.
Fernandes played 90 minutes in the 3-2 win over Norwich City at Old Trafford on Saturday.
