Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes that Marcus Rashford could return from injury for Manchester United’s Premier League fixture against West Ham on Sunday.
Rashford is missing from United’s Europa League round-of-16 first-leg tie against AC Milan at Old Trafford through an ankle problem picked up in the derby victory away to Manchester City.
The England international was forced off after showing great desire to track back and win the ball during a City attack in the second-half.
Fortunately for United, Rashford has avoided any ligament damage and Solskjaer is confident about a quick recovery for one of his star men.
“He’s a fit lad, he’s athletic, recovers well, we’ve not had too much of a reason to rest him,” he told MUTV, as quoted by the MEN.
“He got a knock on his ankle which made it impossible for him to be part of the squad, hopefully for the weekend, but we don’t know.”
Mason Greenwood starts in Rashford’s absence as one of four changes by Solskjaer as United aim to reach the last-eight.
Daniel James gets another chance to impress in attack while Nemanja Matic, Eric Bailly, Alex Telles all come into the starting lineup.
Meanwhile, UEFA rules mean United loanee Diogo Dalot starts for AC Milan at left-back against his parent club this evening.
Man Utd XI to face AC Milan: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Telles; McTominay, Matic, Fernandes; James, Greenwood, Martial.
