Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has not suffered ligament damage after injuring his ankle in Sunday’s 2-0 win over Manchester City.
However, scans have revealed bruising and swelling around Rashford’s ankle and he is highly unlikely to be part of the squad for Thursday’s Europa League tie with AC Milan.
Rashford was forced off in the 73rd minute of the derby and United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed after the game the 23-year-old picked up a knock after sprinting back to make a tackle as City broke forward.
“It is one of them. It was a great recovery run, a recovery sprint, he saved maybe a goal, so he sacrificed himself for the team,” Solskjaer told the club’s official website on Sunday.

United were without Edinson Cavani for the trip to the Etihad, who had to come off during the squad’s final training session before the game on Saturday.
