- Rashford, United top-goalscorer, limped out in FA Cup replay against Wolves

- Solskjaer also expresses hope over Rashford's return against Liverpool on Sunday

Man United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lifted the lid on Marcus Rashford's injury scare, with the Norwegian manager saying his gamble on the England star ended up in regrets.

Rashford was called to action in the second half of FA Cup tie against Wolves but later limped off at Old Trafford after being challenged by Matt Doherty.

With the England star set for the sideline due to back injury, Solskjaer has expressed his worries over the sensational United's top goalscorer.

The Norwegian manager also revealed he gambled Rashford in but the decision proved to be unwise for the night.

“ I’m worried. I didn’t want to play Marcus," Solskjaer told journalists when asked about the injury scare.

"He got a knock to his knee and his back. He has been struggling for a while. That’s why we kept him away. But we needed the win. He was involved in the goal but it backfired.

Man United narrowly defeated Wolves in the encounter all thanks to Juan Mata's goal in the 67th minute.

And they will be facing either of Watford or Tranmere in the fourth-round of the tournament.

Solskjaer has now charged the 22-year-old star to heal back, while giving a hint the forward might be fit for Sunday's Premier League clash against Liverpool.

“He got a knock and couldn’t run but we’ll do anything we can to get him fit for Sunday.

“Marcus is a quick healer and he’ll play through some pain if it’s not a bad injury but we’ll see," the 46-year-old said.
