Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he cannot offer any assurances on Marcus Rashford’s fitness.
Rashford had to be substituted after 72 minutes against Brighton.
It was rare for Solskjaer to take Rashford off, and the manager confirmed it was injury related.
He told the club website the club would have to wait and see, as to whether it is just a minor problem.
Solskjaer said: “
He got caught with a tackle so he had to come off. Let’s see how he goes again.
“Marcus doesn’t want to miss any games or any minutes, but he had to come off.
“It’s one of them again. Your fingers are crossed and you hope he’s going to recover from it. He had to come off but he’s a tough one.”
Rashford went down in the first half and looked in pain but recovered to play on.
He eventually scored United’s equaliser with a coolly taken strike after a Bruno Fernandes pass.
10 minutes later he was off, which was unusual for him, especially with United chasing a goal.
Rashford was already dealing with an ankle injury which kept him out of England’s World Cup qualifiers over the past fortnight.
Next week United have two games in the space of four days against Granada and then Tottenham, and it would be sensible management to leave Rashford on the bench for at least one – if he is even available.
Anthony Martial is also out injured, which makes it tricky for United, but this should not cloud the approach to Rashford.
Rashford’s goal was his 19th of the season in all competitions, and his 10th in the Premier League.
