Marcus Rashford is a doubt for Manchester United’s FA Cup quarter-final clash with Leicester City on Sunday.
The England forward came off at half-time in Thursday’s 1-0 win over AC Milan at the San Siro.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer described the knock as a “twinge” which doesn’t sound serious, as per The Independent, but it’s probably enough to keep him out of action this weekend.
Rashford missed the first leg against AC Milan due to a slight issue and he’s had a shoulder problem for most of the season. Sadly, there’s not much optimism over his chances of featuring in the FA Cup quarter-final.
Anthony Martial has a hip problem and it remains to be seen if Edinson Cavani will be available. That gives Solskjaer a potential headache and pressure is on to pick a team capable of beating a high-flying Leicester City.
Predicted line-ups for Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final at the King Power Stadium
Manchester United predicted XI: Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Fernandes, Pogba, James, Greenwood.
Leicester City predicted XI: Schmeichel, Fofana, Evans, Soyuncu, Castagne, Ndidi, Tielemans, Thomas, Perez, Iheanacho, Vardy.

Key player for Leicester City – Kelechi Iheanacho
The man to watch for Leicester right now is Kelechi Iheanacho, and Brendan Rodgers will be hoping he can continue a good scoring run this weekend after bagging the first-ever hat-trick of his professional against Sheffield United.

With Leicester racked” with injuries to good players Im sure we can take advantage of the situation,Ole should give his Love child (JAMES) a break as his form was very short to say the least,like a Spaniel chasing a paper bag on a gusty day some would say !.Anyway Pogba is back with Big Mac and that makes a difference,Mason”s form worries me as he hasnt scored for what seems months.I think we will beat Leicester and progress in both Cups now, the AC game defined a great defensive performance and Deano must play, that ZLATAN header was on its way in,De Gea must be on the bench and watch a young goalkeeper pinch his place.I would love to see I would love to see DIALLO start too,Ole needs to give the lad a proper go against the Foxes !
I believe Greenwood will come up with surprises against Leicester…
