Marcus Rashford should be available for Manchester United’s Champions League quarter-final clash with Barcelona tonight. The forward started Tuesday’s training session doing individual work following an ankle injury, raising question marks over his participation in the first leg at Old Trafford.

However boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told a pre-match press conference he should be fit to play. “He needed the extra warm-up and hopefully he won’t get a reaction,” the Norwegian said. “He joined parts of it (training) at the end. Let’s see tomorrow.
Hopefully he’ll be ready.” Solskjaer also confirmed Eric Bailly and Antonio Valencia would miss the meeting with the Catalan giants, but revealed Nemanja Matic could be available, while Ander Herrera was likely to miss out.
All four players, who, like Rashford, missed last week’s Premier League loss to Wolves, were absent from the open part of training. “We still hope maybe that Nemanja can be ready, Ander is probably out and Eric and Antonio are definitely out,” Solskjaer added.
