Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is not to fit to face Liverpool after failing to recover from the back injury he sustained in his side’s 1-0 FA Cup third-round replay win over Wolves last Wednesday.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told Sky Sports he expects Rashford to be out “for weeks”.

United gave the England international, who has scored 14 Premier League goals so far this season, every chance to feature in the Super Sunday clash at Anfield, which is live on Sky Sports Premier League from 4pm, but he misses out with Solskjaer, who makes two changes from the 4-0 victory against Norwich, opting for a back three.
