Manchester United’s season is all-but over. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now knows how monumental this task in front of him is.
With two games remaining, it’s up to the players to prove they’re willing to fight for the cause, to show they deserve a place in this squad going forward. However, the Baby Faced Assassin could be without two key forwards for the last two games.
That’s according to The Sun in an exclusive. They say that Solskjaer is ‘sweating’ on the availability of both Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku for the two fixtures against Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City.
Rashford’s niggling shoulder injury meant he had to be subbed off midway through the second half, while Lukaku tweaked the hamstring which he has been having problems with recently.
Furthermore, not only is Solskjaer worried about Rashford, as is Gareth Southgate – with England’s UEFA Nations League campaign starting in five weeks – which leads me to believe that his injury is particularly concerning.
If these guys are missing then it does present an opportunity for others to step up and prove their worth. I’m looking at Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez. Plus, there is also the likes of Mason Greenwood, Tahith Chong and Angel Gomes knocking on the door. For me, we should throw the young guys in and see what we can do because this season is lost.
