Manchester United XI vs Chelsea: Marcus Rashford latest, starting line-up confirmed and team news

The England striker needs just one more goal to become the first United player to reach 30 in all competitions in a single season since Robin van Persie in 2012-13, but missed the recent win over Wolves with a leg injury suffered at West Ham.

Rashford looked set to return against Bournemouth last weekend only to suffer a bout of illness. Jadon Sancho starts on the left wing in his place.


Manager Erik ten Hag had told Rashford reporters on Wednesday: “Looks like (he’ll be fit).

“Yesterday he resumed training. He looks pretty good but we have to see today what the result of the training is, how we recover and then we will make our choices.

United need just one point from their final two games of the season against Chelsea and Fulham to crack the top four and qualify for the Champions League, officially condemning Liverpool to the Europa League.

With the FA Cup final and the possibility of potentially preventing Manchester City from winning a famous treble at Wembley on June 3, it is of the utmost importance to ensure they are in the top four as soon as possible. .

United are still without key players in Lisandro Martinez and Marcel Sabitzer, but have most of the rest of the squad apart from Phil Jones, Tom Heaton and Donny van de Beek.

Man Utd XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Lindelof, Shaw; Casemiro, Eriksen; Antoine, Fernandes, Sancho; Martial.

Subtitles: Butland, Dalot, Maguire, Malacia, Fred, Rashford, Garnacho, McTominay, Weghorst.
