Marcus Rashford prop for Manchester United
Manchester United have been handed a boost ahead of Thursday’s Europa League quarter final first leg against Granada with forward Marcus Rashford set to travel with the team after shaking off an injury.
England international Rashford, who has scored 19 goals and provided 12 assists in all competitions this season, sustained a knock in the 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League and missed training on Tuesday. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Rashford, 23, was available for the trip to Spain but might not be risked for the entire match.
“Marcus is travelling and we have to make a decision tomorrow if he starts or is on the bench. I don’t think he’ll play 90 minutes,” he told a media conference.
Goalkeeper Dean Henderson, who started in place of David de Gea for a seventh straight game against Brighton, is in contention to don the gloves against Granada and Solskjaer said he had to make a choice between the two on a game-by-game basis.
“I cannot prioritise the league or Europa League. The next game is the most important one,” he said.
