Eriksen was on the receiving end of a bad tackle from Andy Carroll and was subbed off after 57 minutes.
He sustained ankle ligament damage and was seen leaving Old Trafford with his foot in a protective boot.
After missing 25 games, Eriksen is now back in training with his team-mates.
He was in action alongside the likes of Harry Maguire and Anthony Martial.
The Dane also gave his thumbs up to the camera to show he is fit and ready to go.
It is unclear when he will be ready to play again for the first-team, but he is hoping to be back for the weekend’s clash with Everton.
Erik ten Hag gave an update on his progress before his side beat Brentford 1-0 yesterday.
He said: “Not for tomorrow but he’s returning on the pitch. He’s returned to team training today, so we have to see now how quickly he can make the progress.”
Man Utd will be keen to get Eriksen back fit, with both him and the suspended Casemiro out.
Ten Hag added: “Two quality players. The midfield department, games will be decided always in midfield, when you miss two quality players it’s clear.
“But you have a squad, if you don’t have them you still have to win.”
Scott McTominay and Marcel Sabitzer have been playing in the middle of park, but both players futures are uncertain.
The Scot has been linked with a move away to Newcastle.
Meanwhile, the Austrian’s loan deal expires at the end of the season.
