Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Man Utd “looking strong” after huge injury boost

Manchester United will have Marcus Rashford available for Wednesday night’s Premier League clash with Sheffield United.

The England striker limped out of Sunday’s 3-2 win over Liverpool in the FA Cup, hobbling straight down the tunnel.

Rashford was subsequently sent for scans post-game, and after positive results took part in full training on Tuesday.

Now he is set to take his place in the starting lineup against Chris Wilder’s struggling side, if selected.

“Marcus is available, yeah,” said Solskjaer on Tuesday. “He trained this morning. I think he tweaked his knee a little bit but should be fine.

“We are looking strong, which is a good place to be in.”

With Eric Bailly available also, Solskjaer has few injury issues for the visit of the Premier League’s bottom side.

Mason Greenwood could be in line to start once again, having scored a first-half equaliser against Liverpool.

And his manager is tipping him to enjoy a fine second half of the season.

“We think Mason is going be very important in second half of the season but it’s not going happen by itself,” he said.

“He scored against West Ham and was expected to kick on.

“He’s taken steps, he’s grown, he’s mature and he’s been training with Edinson Cavani for half a season, whoever doesn’t learn from players like him, Bruno, that’s a pity.

“I’m very confident Mason will chip in with goals and assists.”

Two players who could leave United this month are Jesse Lingard and Brandon Williams.

Both continue to be linked with moves away and Solskjaer remarked on the duo: “They’re still part of our club, training well, no deal has been struck for any player yet, there’s still a little period left of course.

“There’s been many clubs interested in our players, so let’s see what happens.

“For me it’s always important to take our wishes and our plans into consideration, but also the players’ of course, because they are Man United people through and through.”
