Manchester United Welcome Back Key Man To Face Southampton

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Marcus Rashford is fully fit again
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Marcus Rashford is fully fit again

Marcus Rashford is fit and ready to go for Manchester United after an ankle injury.

United's interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested that Rashford could start against Southampton this weekend as they look to keep their late season push for a top-four finish alive.

It has been a speedy recovery for Rashford who suffered the knock against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday yet stayed on the field because of earlier injuries to Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard.

Rashford was briefly used as a sub in United's midweek win at Crystal Palace but Solskjaer told reporters today that he's ready to start again. He said: “Rashford is fully fit now. I’ll probably start him. I don’t think there will be many changes.

“It's the last session today, but we're not going to take any risks, so maybe Anthony (Martial), but it might just be even a few more days before he's ready, so probably the squad will look similar to what it did on Wednesday.

“Maybe one third of them will be Academy kids – maybe even more – so that’s a good point to take out of it. It’s about getting back to winning ways at home.

“The Liverpool game was a draw, and the Burnley game before that was a draw, so we need to start picking up more points at home. So that’s the focus now.”

Rashford has been one of the most important players for Solskjaer since he replaced Jose Mourinho as manager in December and his return is a huge boost for United.
