Soccer – Mourinho hopeful over Rashford injury

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is hopeful that Marcus Rashford's knee injury suffered in the 1-0 Champions League win at Benfica is not serious. The England international striker was forced out of Wednesday's Champions League Group A clash on 76 minutes - 12 minutes after scoring the only goal of the game when the hosts' 18-year-old goalkeeper Mile Svilar carried the ball over the line from his long-range free-kick. Mourinho initially thought Rashford was struggling with cramp, but later revealed that it was a knee problem and he must wait to see if he will be fit for Saturday's Premier League trip to Huddersfield, which United are 1/3 to win with bet365. The Portuguese said: "I thought it was cramps, I thought it was a bit of fatigue, but no it was something he felt in his knee. I hope nothing too bad."
