Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford will be assessed this week, after picking up a muscle injury in the game against Huddersfield Town, reports ESPN.
The 20-year-old attacker came on a second-half substitute in the encounter and is set to be monitored by the Red Devils staff, and they’ll determine whether he’s fit enough to travel to Newcastle on Sunday.
Apparently, the club is hopeful that Rashford will be passed fit to head North to play in the game, but muscle injuries aren’t to be taken lightly, so it’s best to approach this one with caution.
Rashford’s been off the boil recently but he’s an extremely talented young man who’ll be desperate to get back on the right track. Jose Mourinho trusts him wholeheartedly and I fully expect the Wythenshawe-born-forward to keep getting selected.
During his cameo against Huddersfield, Rashford did look hungry. It’s just a shame that this setback may knock his confidence, but hopefully, it isn’t anything major and he’ll be back playing as soon as possible.
We need his pace, energy and creativity during the run-in, and having him as an option from off the substitutes bench could be crucial in the Champions League and FA Cup.
