How Man Utd could line up against Sheff Utd with Rashford an injury doubt and Solskjaer given defensive dilemma
MANCHESTER UNITED take on Sheffield United at Old Trafford tomorrow night in what could be a top vs bottom contest in the Premier League.
But they may have to do so without Marcus Rashford.
The England forward had to be replaced against Liverpool on Sunday after feeling pain in his knee.
But Rashford, the two-goal hero of United's last clash with the Blades, may still make it in time for the match.
Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: "Marcus felt his knee but we'll have to do a scan.
"Hopefully, it's not too bad but we'll see tomorrow."
Solskjaer, 47, made a number of changes for Sunday's 3-2 win, but is likely to revert largely back to the tried and tested formula tomorrow.
This means David de Gea returning in place of former Blade Dean Henderson – who gifted his old team the lead in the reverse fixture with a disappointing error.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be deployed at right-back in Solskjaer's 4-2-3-1, while Luke Shaw has been preferred to Alex Telles on the left of late.
Skipper Harry Maguire will start, although who partners him is less of a certainty.

Victor Lindelof began the Liverpool match at the heart of defence, but Eric Bailly is back in contention.
Solskjaer said: "Eric will be available."
"It was just a little thing and I didn’t want to risk him, Victor [Lindelof] was ready, and we had cover on bench.
"He’s fine, no problem. I can’t say if he’s playing but he’ll be fit and available for selection for Wednesday."
Paul Pogba has been a revelation of late, despite a revolving cast of partners at the heart of midfield.
It was Scott McTominay's turn on Sunday, making Fred the favourite to be selected on Wednesday – although Nemanja Matic is also available.
FA Cup hero Bruno Fernandes will replace Donny van de Beek in the XI, while Martial could return wide on the left if Rashford isn't deemed fit enough to start.
Mason Greenwood will begin on the right, while Edinson Cavani will hunt his first Old Trafford goal under the lights.
