Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly awaiting the results of scans on Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford, who were both injured in Manchester United's draw with Chelsea.

Manchester United's top-four hopes have reportedly been rocked by an injury crisis that has left Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sweating on the fitness of Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford.

Lukaku aggravated a long-standing hamstring issue in United's 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Sunday and Rashford was forced off with a shoulder problem.

Both players had scans the day after the match and, according to The Sun, Solskjaer is now waiting to see if either of his strikers will be fit to play a part against Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City in the Red Devils' final two matches of the season.

United sit sixth in the table following their weekend draw with fourth-placed Chelsea, three points behind their rivals in the race for Champions League football.

England boss Gareth Southgate is also awaiting news on Rashford's scan results, with the Three Lions' UEFA Nations League finals campaign just five weeks away.
