During Friday evening’s 2-0 victory, the Manchester United winger, who started the match, was substituted in the second half after a collision with teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Cole Palmer of Chelsea came on to replace the United attacker for the final 30 minutes, alleviating concerns about Rashford’s condition.

Southgate addressed the situation, saying, “I think he’s probably OK.”

He added, “But we just thought given the nature of the collision, it was a chance to get Cole (Palmer) into the game. I haven’t assessed too much, but I think he was OK when he came off.”

Rashford’s injury would have raised worries for Erik Ten Hag, who is approaching a limited number of options on the left wing.

Despite having Jadon Sancho as a potential choice, the 23-year-old is not expected to feature for the club again due to a public falling-out.

Ten Hag would prefer not to rely solely on 19-year-old Alejandro Garnacho.

Thus, the indication that Rashford is likely to recover swiftly and be ready to resume action for his club when the season recommences next weekend is a welcome development for United in what has been an otherwise disappointing campaign.
