And while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was hopeful he would be available for today after the game, the England striker has been unable to recover in time, according to the Telegraph.

Rashford has started every one of United’s games this season and there are now fears the back problem he has been carrying for “a little while” will keep him out beyond this week.

He has undergone tests on the issue and Solskjaer will face questions on the results later today.

United face Burnley, the winner of Watford or Tranmere in the FA Cup, Man City in the League Cup and then Wolves and Chelsea in their next five games.

And Solskjaer will want to limit his absence the best he can given United’s reliance on the 22-year-old’s goals this season.

The Englishman has bagged 14 goals which is nearly double that of his nearest competitor Anthony Martial who has only got 8.


Gareth Southgate will also be sweating on the exact nature of the problem ahead of this summer’s Euros.

He is already without captain and main goal threat Harry Kane for the foreseeable after he ruptured a hamstring which will keep him out for three months.

And he could now be without Rashford for the upcoming friendlies in March.
