Toon in training: Trippier and Wilson move closer to return
Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson are both back in full training ahead of Sunday's visit to Premier League champions Manchester City.
The England international pair have been sidelined since February and December respectively - with Wilson still United's leading goalscorer this term, just as he was last season.
Whether either of them will be considered for the weekend's game at the Etihad Stadium remains to be seen, but their involvement in training will be a big boost to Eddie Howe and his players after the Magpies suffered their first defeat in five matches against Liverpool last time out.
Bruno Guimarães trained on Thursday as it was announced that he had been nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month award, while Miguel Almirón is up for the league's Goal of the Month prize for his winner against Crystal Palace. Javier Manquillo, meanwhile, was celebrating his 28th birthday as club photographer Serena Taylor brought nufc.co.uk this gallery from Newcastle's Benton base.
