Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has included Marcus Rashford in his Manchester United starting lineup to face West Ham at Old Trafford.
United can return to second in the Premier League with victory over the Hammers after Leicester City’s emphatic 5-0 win over Sheffield United earlier on Sunday.
There had been doubts about Rashford’s involvement this evening after he was absent in Thursday’s 1-1 Europa League draw against AC Milan.
Rashford picked up an ankle injury while tracking back in the derby victory over Manchester City but has recovered in time to return against David Moyes’ side.
The England international starts alongside Mason Greenwood and Daniel James and could lead the line in the attacking trident.
Elsewhere, Dean Henderson retains his place in goal with David De Gea still missing due to the birth of his first child.
Fred returns to the starting lineup in a midfield axis with Scott McTominay as Paul Pogba is still ruled out injured.
Victor Lindelof partners captain Harry Maguire in central defence and United’s bench includes Amad and Shola Shoretire.
United fans on social media were pleased to see the inclusion of Rashford this evening. But there is a slight concern he may have been rushed back too soon after his latest injury problem.
Man Utd XI to face West Ham: Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Greenwood, Fernandes, James, Rashford.

Very big call but could be the difference between getting a result and getting nothing at all

Obvs want to see Rashford starting but I hope it's not at a bigger cost and we haven't rushed him back.

Ole had to rush Rashford back in for this one. The boy gets not rest, but if the medical staff declare him fit, he has to start. It's too late in the season to rest anyone. This is a game #MUFC must win against a very good West Ham side.

Very happy with that team. Really hoping Rashford is actually fit and free from (that) injury. We've brought him back into the team far too early before and cost us.
