MARCUS RASHFORD is set to start for England against Malta tonight, according to reports.
The Manchester United star has scored just once in 16 appearances for his club so far this season.

Despite his lack of form he was selected for Southgate’s 26-man squad ahead of the likes of Raheem Sterling.
But boss Southgate is keen to see his stars in action in the penultimate international break before the finals.
He arrived at the England camp on Wednesday and has trained since.
Southgate, 53, recently addressed Rashford’s poor form at club level.
The Three Lions boss said: “In the end — and respectfully — with the big bucks, comes the big pressure.
“He is the guy that got all the goals last year.
“I’m sure even Harry [Kane] is not thinking I’ve got to be the one to score.
“Maybe with [Rasmus] Hojlund scoring now at United, that will help but you know over a period of time Marcus has scored goals so that’s going to happen again.
“It’s just a case of getting a couple and then he’ll be off and running.”
