Rashford, who picked up an injury over the international break, played against Watford on the weekend but has sustained an ankle problem – a different issue to the one he had before. His replacement, Romelu Lukaku, had a poor game at the Molineux.
Herrera, currently heavily linked with Paris Saint Germain, also featured against Watford. The nature of his injury is unknown.
Ole: “Ander and Rashy weren’t fit for the game. Anthony got a knock as well. He will be able to come on if needed. Scott and Fred, fresh legs, energy in there. Hopefully we can benefit from that.” #mufc [MUTV]

United saying Rashford out with an ankle injury rather than illness. Herrera also injured and not in the squad.

Man United once again looked lethargic up against the counter-attacking efficiency of Wolves and, without Rashford, their lack of movement up front was the chief source of frustration. It almost felt like United under Mourinho, pushing full-backs high and bouncing it in to Lukaku with terrible results.
Solskjaer now has a full week to prepare for Barcelona. He will need the duo back and, more importantly, need his team to play with greater conviction.
