Manchester United expect to be without striker Marcus Rashford for six weeks at the very least, as he has suffered a stress fracture in his back. The 22-year-old England international sat out the 2-0 Premier League defeat at Liverpool on Sunday, having been injured during the 1-0 midweek FA Cup third-round replay victory at home to Wolves. And Red Devils head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer accepts that he will have to cope without Rashford for the foreseeable future. He told MUTV:

"I don't know long it is, I'm not a doctor, but normally a stress fracture is six weeks to heal and then he needs some recovery or some rehab after that probably."

Minus Rashford, United are back in action on Wednesday evening when Burnley are the visitors to Old Trafford, with the Clarets priced at 7/2 with bet365 to secure a draw, while the hosts are 2/5 to win the game.
