The 26-year-old forward suffered an injury in their 3 – 1 FA Cup quarter-finals win over Fulham.
Eddie Howe’s men have a chance to go above Manchester United in third when they host the Red Devils at St. James’ Park. The Magpies will be looking to banish memories of their 2 – 0 final loss to Manchester United in the Carabao cup some weeks ago.
“Marcus Rashford has started his recovery at Carrington after sustaining an injury in our last fixture, the Emirates FA Cup quarter-final win over Fulham,” a club statement read. “Marcus was able to get out on the grass at our training base on Monday but the Reds’ leading goalscorer could only take part in a small session, away from the main group.”
The club also confirmed that there was no ball work involved for the 25-year-old and added: “Rashford’s fitness will be a concern heading into the Premier League clash at Newcastle United on Sunday.”
Further information on Rashford’s injury will be provided by Erik ten Hag in his pre-match press conference later in the week.
