Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is set to be included in the squad for Saturday’s trip to Leicester City while captain Harry Maguire has resumed training following a calf strain, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Friday.

Rashford underwent shoulder surgery in August and hasn’t played since England’s Euro 2020 final defeat by Italy in July.

“He’s in the squad, if he’s going to start or not, I can’t tell you… He’s worked really hard throughout the lay-off. Been really bright this week and had a 60-minute involvement behind closed doors last week, so he’s raring to go,” said Solskjaer.

Maguire, who last played three weeks ago against Aston Villa, trained on the grass on Friday for the first time since his injury but is unlikely to feature against his former club.
