Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera will be assessed by Manchester United’s medical team after picking up knocks in the Reds’ 2–0 victory against Swansea City in the EFL Cup.

The pair are expected to start for Man United in Saturday afternoon’s huge clash with Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.

But both will have fitness tests after issues sustained against Swansea, according to ESPN. Rashford and Herrera were taken off simultaneously in a precautionary measure on the 67-minute mark, replaced by Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku.

Rashford had a tightness in his hamstring, suffered in the first half of the victory at the Liberty Stadium, he played on until being replaced by Belgian striker Lukaku.

Herrera, meanwhile, suffered a knock after being caught in the ankle by Swansea’s Kyle Naughton.

Both knocks are expected to be very minor, and both Rashford and Herrera should be fully fit to face Spurs on Saturday.

Centre-back Phil Jones is also set to be available after missing United’s trip to South Wales with a quad injury suffered in last weekend’s 2–1 defeat Huddersfield town. Jose Mourinho confirmed that after Tuesday evening’s win, but said that there would be no return for midfielders Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini.

Marcos Rojo is unlikely to start or even make an appearance against Tottenham on Saturday, but the Argentine defender is nearing a full return to United after suffering a long-term ligament injury all the way back in April against Anderlecht in the UEFA Europa League quarter-final second leg.
