Manchester United are expected to be without Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani for their Europa League round-of-16 first leg with AC Milan at Old Trafford.
We didn’t think Rashford would be ready for Thursday night’s game after sustaining an ankle injury in the win at City. Cavani, on the other hand, has missed five of United’s last six games.
There’s no sign of a return for Paul Pogba just yet and Donny van de Beek is still unavailable.
Rashford could also miss the Premier League visit of West Ham on Sunday.
“I don’t think he’ll be available for tomorrow,” Solskjaer said of Rashford, as per the Manchester Evening News. “He’s still getting treatment but he didn’t join in during training today. Even though I’m normally a very optimistic guy, I think he’s out for tomorrow night and probably a doubt for the weekend.
“But that 60 or 70-yard sprint recovery run just showed the hunger, appetite and spirit we’ve got and the humility in our work. It was probably worth it there and then but you’re never happy when you lose players for games.
“I’m not sure if anyone will be back. David is not available. Donny: no. Paul: no. Edinson: maybe but probably not. Juan: no. And Marcus: maybe but probably not, so similar to Sunday and maybe we’ve lost Marcus.”
AC Milan have injury concerns of their own, too.
Dean Henderson is set to start his third successive United game for the first time while we also expect Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood in the line-up.
