However, he has been involved in first-team training and scored two goals in a bounce game against Blackburn last week.

Dinnery exects Rashford to be in the matchday squad for the Red Devils’ trip to Leicester City this weekend and admits he could start against Liverpool the following week.

“He’s there or thereabouts,” Dinnery told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“Ole has so many attacking talents at the club so there is no need to throw Rashford back in there unnecessarily.

“However, what we do know, is he has been involved in behind closed doors games and first-team training.

“By the way, that’s not just players taking it easy. It’s highly competitive and you train how you want to play.

“Rashford will be feeling the full force of his teammates’ challenges in that.

“It looks as though he has come through without any reactions. He’s in a really good place.

“It wouldn’t surprise me to see him in the matchday squad this weekend.

“His intention was to come back for the Liverpool game so if he gets some minutes this weekend, that wouldn’t surprise me. I’m confident in that.

“Man United will make sure Rashford can start against Liverpool if he needs to.”
