MARCUS RASHFORD felt a 'twinge' during Manchester United's win over AC Milan and was subbed off as a precaution.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the England star had a problem and the Red Devils boss did not want to 'take a risk'.
The winger was replaced by Paul Pogba at half-time during United's 1-0 win at the San Siro on Thursday night.
Pogba had an immediate impact – scoring the winner to make it 2-1 on aggregate.
Solskjaer was delighted to see his team though to the Europa League quarter-finals.
But after the game he expressed concern about Rashford, 23 – who has recently struggled with ankle and shoulder problems.
Solskjaer said: "Marcus had a twinge, we couldn't take a risk with him. Hopefully he won't be too bad."
There is now a chance the forward will miss United's FA Cup quarter-final at Leicester on Sunday.
Rashford picked up an ankle injury in the Manchester derby while the shoulder is a longer-term problem that he may have surgery on at the end of the season.
But the United academy product is confident he can battle on for now.

He said: "I just focus on the next game at hand and that's how I deal with it [the shoulder injury].
“What’s needed after we’ll deal with that after, but my main focus is just to be available for the games.
“I know my body and I know what I can do physically and that's it. I take one game at a time and it's the life of footballer.
“We can rest when we retire and for now I want to play as much as I can.
"I recover from games quite well and from injuries I have no doubts, so I have no worries.”
