Marcus Rashford is due to return from injury before the end of the season.

The Manchester United striker, 22, suffered a stress fracture in his back in January but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes he will play in their final three Premier League games, plus the FA Cup and Europa League finals if they qualify.

England boss Gareth Southgate will also be happy to have Rashford back for the European Championship.

‘The scan came back quite positive,’ said Solskjaer. ‘It’ll probably be another couple of months before we see him but when he’s fit, he will be stronger for it. He wants to be there when the business end comes.’ Meanwhile, Solskjaer says Fred deserves credit for adapting to English football since being taken off during last season’s 4-0 drubbing at Everton. He scored twice in Thursday’s win over Bruges and Solksjaer said: ‘You don’t have time for three or four touches or to get your studs on the ball, all those little habits Brazilian players have from a slower type of game. Fred has really taken on the challenge.’

United will assess Anthony Martial for today’s match at Everton after he felt a twinge in a thigh during training.
