Man Utd boss Solskjaer provides update on Rashford injury.

  • United are keen to do everything they can to get Rashford fit for clash against Liverpool.

  • Man Utd boss will give the 22-year-old time before deciding whether he’ll be fit for the trip to Anfield this weekend.

Marcus Rashford might not be fit to play in Manchester United's Premier League match against arch rivals Liverpool on Sunday, says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The England international came off the bench to help the Red Devils secure a win over Wolverhampton in the FA Cup third round replay on Wednesday, but he was forced off 16 minutes later due to a back problem.

However, Solskjaer has revealed they are doing all they can to get the 22-year-old forward, who has a long standing back injury, involved for the match against Jurgen Klopp's Reds at Anfield this weekend.

"I can't tell you now," Solskjaer told reporters at the Aon Training Complex on Friday when quizzed about Rashford's fitness.

"We'll do some more checks and treatment with him today. I'm not going to hold my breath. But let's see.

"As I said with Harry [Maguire] a few weeks ago, of course we're going to give him the absolute amount of time to find out.

"We're going to do some more checks and treatment with him today. Yesterday, of course, was just a recovery day anyway and some treatment for him.

"I haven't seen him this morning, but I'm not going to hold my breath. I would probably think that he wouldn't be ready, but let's see. There's still 48 hours, more than that, so let's see."
