Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Marcus Rashford picked up a shoulder injury in Manchester United’s 3-1 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.
The Reds needed one point to secure Champions League qualification at Old Trafford but were ultimately second best in a game of fine margins despite Rashford’s best efforts.
Rashford’s defected strike brought the Reds level in the first-half and he was the best United player throughout.
The England international was a constant threat on the break and created a glorious chance for Anthony Martial that should have put Solskjaer’s men in front.
But shortly after United fell behind and needed another moment of inspiration, Rashford was forced off hurt.
Solskjaer has revealed Rashford’s condition and is hopeful he can recover in time for Saturday’s game away to West Ham.
“It’s a niggling shoulder injury, let’s see how quickly he can recover,” he told BT Sport post-match.
“Hopefully he will be ready for the West Ham game.”
Rashford was electric this evening and must be managed carefully ahead of a crucial week for the Reds.
United travel to RB Leipzig next week knowing they can secure qualification with a point on the final matchday.

"Maybe I should have taken Fred off, but he's been playing really well."
"The second one isn't a yellow card, Ander Herrera knows that as well. Ander knows."
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gives his view on the major talking point as Man Utd fall at home to PSG.
