Marcus Rashford could be available for Manchester United’s Premier League game against West Ham on Saturday despite coming off injured in their Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

The forward is undergoing treatment for the problem which forced him off in the second half of the 3-1 loss at Old Trafford, and he was unable to join in the full training session on Friday morning.
Solskjaer is, however, optimistic that Rashford could be available to face the Hammers, although Luke Shaw is not yet ready to return.

“Marcus has been training this morning, not fully but he joined in with the group,” Solskjaer said. “His shoulder stopped him finishing the game [against PSG] so he’s been getting treatment and hopefully he’ll be part of the squad that travels, we’ll see after training.
“Luke is not ready yet, apart from that we had a big squad training again. We’re a bit bruised after Wednesday night but hopefully we’ll be ready to go again tomorrow.”

The game on Saturday evening will see United play in front of fans for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic led to supporters not being allowed to attend matches.
The new government rules mean that 2,000 West Ham supporters will be present for the clash and Solskjaer is looking forward to it.

“It’ll be great playing in front of fans, I’m looking forward to it,” the United manager said. “We won’t have our fans there but will have to use the energy and thrive off the home fans and make them quiet and edgy, we’re looking forward to it.
“It’s great to see fans back in a stadium, hopefully we’ll get them back at Old Trafford soon, a bit bruised and disappointed after Wednesday night.”
