Man United boss Jose Mourinho unsure about extent of Marcus Rashford’s knee injury

Jose Mourinho admits he is unsure about the extent of the knee injury which forced Marcus Rashford off during Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Benfica on Wednesday.

The England international, who scored the game’s only goal from a free-kick, went down holding his knee in the 76th minute and had to be replaced by Anthony Martial.

United resume their Premier League campaign on Saturday with a trip to Huddersfield and Mourinho is uncertain if he will be available, though he does expect Phil Jones to return to the starting line-up.

“With Rashford, I thought it was cramp because he was running so much – I thought it was muscular fatigue,” Mourinho said.

“But no, he told me he felt something in his knee. It didn’t look to me like a big thing but we don’t know.

“Phil Jones was on the bench because he felt that if we really needed him, he could [play]. So if he was at that stage today, on Saturday I think he will be in a condition to play. For Eric Bailly, I think it will be difficult.

“Hopefully some of them [can return at Huddersfield] but I don’t know. I don’t know about Paul, I don’t know about Fellaini.”
