Manchester United have been given some positive news on a Marcus Rashford knee injury.
Cast your mind back to the dying embers of Manchester United’s 3-2 victory over Liverpool. The game and result was great, though watching Marcus Rashford hobble off the field with a knee injury wasn’t so good…
It sort of marred what was an otherwise excellent result and performance for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United. Since then, we’ve been waiting on bated breath.
Well, we’ve finally been given an update on Rashford’s knee issue – and it’s good news.
The story comes from James Ducker in The Telegraph, who writes that United have been given an injury lift, as the star’s knee isn’t as bad as first feared.
Ducker labels it as a ‘significant boost’ for United’s title race, with Rashford only suffering from bruising following undergoing a scan yesterday.
Knee injuries aren’t to be messed with. I’d argue they can be the worst within football, particularly if ligament damage is suffered.
Thankfully, for Rashford, this looks like a case of just resting up and waiting for the bruising to heal. Personally, I wouldn’t risk him against Sheffield United tomorrow if he’s feeling any pain whatsoever.
Will Rashford play vs Sheffield United?
Whoever Solskjaer calls upon against Sheffield United, you’d hope that we’d have more than enough quality to get the job done and secure another three points.
As for Rashford, it’s about keeping him fit in the long-term rather than looking at the here and now. Our Englishman was excellent against Liverpool and there are loads of big games just over the horizon that we’re going to need him for.
Why not use this opportunity to give Anthony Martial a try and see if he can get a goal that would be massive for his confidence?
