Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful Marcus Rashford will be available for Manchester United’s trip to West Ham after the attacker was forced off against Paris Saint Germain.
The 23-year-old was withdrawn with 15 minutes remaining of United’s 3-1 loss to the French champions in their feisty Group H clash at Old Trafford with what looked to be a shoulder injury.
Rashford immediately walked down the tunnel after being replaced by Paul Pogba, as a Neymar brace put the Parisians in a commanding position in the group heading into the final round of games.

And Solskjaer has provided an update on the fitness of his star attacker, who did not play in the recent international break as a result of a similar shoulder concern.
‘It’s a niggling shoulder injury,’ Solskjaer told BT Sport after the final whistle. ‘Let’s see how quickly he can recover. Hopefully he will be ready for the West Ham game.’
Rashford’s absence would be a big loss for United, with the England international full of confidence in the outing against PSG on Wednesday evening.

Former United defender Rio Ferdinand said the 23-year-old was ‘unplayable at times’ in his role on the right wing, linking up well with new man Edinson Cavani before his untimely substitution.
The pair are developing a good partnership after Rashford set up the Uruguayan for his dramatic late winner against Southampton last weekend, as the Red Devils came from 2-0 down to clinch all three points at St Mary’s Stadium.
United visit a resurgent West Ham on Saturday afternoon with former boss David Moyes surely keen to get one over his former club at the London Stadium.
