Ole Gunnar Solskjaer waits on key trio

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof face fitness tests ahead of Manchester United's trip to Bournemouth.

However, striker Rashford, who scored a brace in United's 2-1 Carabao Cup last-16 win at Chelsea on Wednesday, and central defensive duo Maguire and Lindelof are struggling with knocks.
Solskjaer said in his Friday morning press conference: "They had treatment yesterday, today a light session, hopefully they're ready. Can't tell you exactly."
The loss of Rashford would be a big blow as Solskjaer claims he has "flourished" since Anthony Martial returned from injury.
He added: "He's probably happier facing goal, being direct, driving at people, taking players on instead of being that target man."
Meanwhile, the United boss claims the confidence has returned to his players on the back of their winning run at Partizan Belgrade, Norwich and Chelsea respectively.
The Norwegian tactician said: "Fine margins decide football games at this level. It's so much easier when you get confidence or momentum from previous results.

"At the moment, the boys are playing more on instinct rather than taking that extra split second to think."
