Manchester United have been on a real tear over the last few games, as several members of the squad have been putting in some brilliant displays, trying to right the wrongs from the previous regime under Jose Mourinho.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have scored 12 goals in their last three outings, with Marcus Rashford turning into a real focal point of the attack, as he’s been leading the line brilliantly.
However, in the second half of the game against Bournemouth, Rashford picked up an injury that forced him to be substituted and headed straight down the tunnel.
Now, Solskjaer has confirmed some positive news on that front, by stating that the 20-year-old should be okay to take part against Newcastle tomorrow.
“I think he’ll be okay,” Solskjaer is quoted as saying by the Manchester Evening News. “He’s been working so hard and he’s been a bit tired. I think he’ll be alright.”
With Romelu Lukaku scoring almost instantly after coming on, that gives the Baby Faced Assassin something to think about. Does he give the Belgian his chance to make his mark from the start? Or does he risk Rashford and go with what has been working?
Personally, I think it could go either way, but I’d opt for starting Lukaku and giving Rashford some time to rest. As the manager says, the young lad from Wythenshawe is feeling a little tired, so maybe play him as a sub and call upon him if needed.
