"Let's hope so," Ole told BBC Sport as cited by SunSport when asked if Rashford was okay.
"His knee was bothering him. So a scan tomorrow (on Monday, January 25) and we'll see where we are," he added.

With the scores level, Bruno Fernandes, who had been benched scored a stunning free-kick to guide United to victory.
