Solskjaer hopeful Rashford can be fit for West Ham trip

2 min read

Manchester United hope Marcus Rashford can shake off the shoulder injury he aggravated against Paris St Germain in time for Saturday’s Premier League game at West Ham United, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Friday.

Rashford, who sat out England’s Nations League games last month after injuring his shoulder against Everton, scored for United in Wednesday’s 3-1 Champions League defeat to the French side before being withdrawn in the second half.

“Marcus has been training this morning, not fully, but he’s joined in with the group,” Solskjaer told reporters.

“His shoulder stopped him finishing the game against PSG but he’s getting treatment and hopefully he’ll be part of the squad that travels.”

The game against fifth-placed West Ham will come too soon for left back Luke Shaw, who has missed each of United’s four matches since the international break due to a hamstring injury.

“Luke’s not ready yet,” said Solskjaer, whose side are ninth with 16 points, five behind leaders Tottenham Hotspur with a game in hand. “Apart from that, we had a big squad training again.”

The London Stadium will welcome supporters for the first time since March and Solskjaer said his side are relishing the opportunity to silence the home crowd.

“It’ll be great playing in front of fans,” Solskjaer said. “We’re looking forward to it. Of course, we won’t have our fans there but we will just have to use the energy and thrive off the home fans and make them quiet, hopefully.”
