Their next hurdle comes in the form of a quarter-final clash against Liverpool, with both sides vying for a berth in the Wembley semi-finals scheduled for late April.

Ahead of the game, Ten Hag issued updates on the fitness of several players, including that of striker Rasmus Højlund, who has missed the last four games through a training injury.

He also mentioned Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka – all three players have returned to training.

“We had a good week,” he told reporters on Friday. “The players you mention (Højlund, Maguire, and Wan-Bissaka) returned on the pitch, partly at the start of the week, and today they had a session and are all training.

“I think [they will be fit to play]. Tomorrow we have one session. We have to see how they recover from this, but it looks good.”

He also added: “Tom Heaton is back as well, also very good. Mason Mount trained all week with us, he had some full sessions with us, so it’s looking good.”
