“Marcus [Rashford] – we have managed him, and we have had to for quite a while,” said Solskjaer.

“He had his back last season and then his shoulder which he recovered from really well.


“He is gone through the worst with his foot as well and he is available for tomorrow.

“We didn’t lose anyone after Leeds game, which was great preparation because it was a high intensity match.”

It’s promising to hear that Rashford is over the worst of the problem which has been troubling him.

There was a worry that the England international has been worsening the issue by continuing to play on it.

But it seems he has been able to recover and is fit to play on the biggest night of the season for United so far.

The update will also be music to the ears of England manager Gareth Southgate, who will be watching Rashford’s situation with interest ahead of this summer’s European Championship.
