Man Utd boss Solskjaer ponders Rashford role for Atalanta

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Marcus Rashford isn't ready to play a full 90.

The England international marked his first appearance of the season with a goal at Leicester City on Saturday.

Ahead of tonight's Champions League clash with Atalanta, Solskjaer told "It was a big bonus for Marcus.

"He's worked incredibly hard and has been focused to get himself back on the pitch; he looked like he'd never been out.

"He's probably not fit enough for a 90-minute full game yet because he's been out for a while. But he's looking strong, fresh and eager, and he'll be on the pitch at some point."

He added: "We have to go into every game with loads of energy so there will be changes in how we approach the game.

“We're at home with the fans behind us, they're the best fans in the world, and I know how they are after the team have gone through a little bit of a sticky period. There is no better place to go [than Old Trafford] and to try to go for three points."
