The Englishman, who is at the top of the American charts with 19 goals this season, seemed to have had a spell on the sidelines, but The Mirror reports that the 22-year-old is making himself available for selection for the trip from his side to Anfield.
United medical staff works tir elessly to ensure that the striker is in the best possible shape to face the Premier League champions, although the club is reluctant to rush him back and cause further damage to the injury.
However, Rashford has responded well to treatment far and the early signs are encouraging for a start on Sunday, with the Englishman willing to take painful injections to play his part.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be in two minds as to whether he is playing his star-shaped man on Anfield. His side looks all the stronger with the 22-year-old involved, but he will be aware of the consequences of forcing a player to play when they are not completely finished.
