Solskjaer gives Rashford injury update ahead of trip to West Ham

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful that Marcus Rashford will be fit for Manchester United’s trip to West Ham with the forward undergoing treatment for a shoulder injury.

Rashford was substituted during the midweek defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League with the problem, though took part in light training today ahead of tomorrow evening’s clash at the London Stadium.

United will be looking to secure their fourth consecutive Premier League victory and ninth in succession away from home tomorrow evening, against a West Ham side who have lost just one of their past seven fixtures.

Solskjaer confirmed that Rashford will continue to receive treatment and will be assessed ahead of the clash, though is hopeful the England international will be part of the Red Devils’ travelling party.

“Marcus has been training this morning, not fully, but he’s joined in with the group,” Solskjaer revealed at his pre-match press conference.

”His shoulder stopped him finishing the game [against PSG].

”He’s getting treatment and hopefully he’ll be part of the squad that travels. He’s having treatment now after training.”

Solskjaer also provided an update on the fitness of Luke Shaw and revealed the full-back is not yet ready for a return to first-team action, the 25-year-old having missed the past four fixtures after sustaining a hamstring injury in last month’s 3-1 win at Everton.

”Luke [Shaw]’s not ready yet. Apart from that, we had a big squad training again.”
