Man Utd boss Solskjaer delivers injury update for Rashford

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Marcus Rashford is facing a scan after victory at Manchester City.

Solskjaer has provided an update on Marcus Rashford after the forward limped off during Manchester United's 2-0 win at Manchester City.

Rashford made a lung-busting run to prevent a City counter-attack in the second half and appeared to hurt his left ankle in the process.

The Englishman tried to continue but was unable to move freely, prompting Solskjaer to substitute him for Mason Greenwood in the 73rd minute.

Asked about the severity of Rashford's injury, the Red Devils boss said: "I don't know. It's something with his ankle.

"When he sprinted 70 yards to save a goal, it showed the attitude of the boy.

"I think he went over on his ankle but we need to do a scan, I've not had time to speak to the doctor yet."
