Rashford was a doubt for the Granada match on Thursday night after coming off with an injury during the league win over Brighton and Hove Albion at home last weekend.

Rashford was able to overcome the injury picked up against Brighton in time for the Granada game and the Manchester United Academy graduate even scored the opening goal of the game in the first half before Bruno Fernandes wrapped up the win from the penalty spot.
