Marcus Rashford will sit out for a ‘few games’, according to Erik ten Hag.

Manchester United Football Club were by far the better team when Everton came to town over the weekend, with Erik ten Hag’s men playing some lovely football, showing they were more than deserving of all three points.

The victory didn’t come without casualty, though. Sadly, Marcus Rashford limped off late on, with an apparent groin injury. Earlier today, we covered a claim which stated that the Englishman would be missing for the Sevilla game at the very least.

Now, we’ve been given further indication on the situation from Erik ten Hag. The gaffer met the media earlier today ahead of United’s Europa League tie, reiterating they’ll be without their key star for at least a ‘few games’.

As you’d expect, Ten Hag preferred to remain tight-lipped on the extent of the problem, not wanting to give too much away.

Check out what the gaffer had to say in full here:

“It’s a few games,” replied Ten Hag, when asked how long Rashford will be out for, per

“I can’t give more details because we have to see how the injury develops.”

Sadly, this means Rashford will not be available for the double-header against a Sevilla side who have always given us problems over the years. This Europa League quarter-final will be much tougher without the Englishman available…

To further add to the woes, Rashford will also miss Nottingham Forest away this weekend.

Right now, Rashford will be targeting the Brighton FA Cup semi-final as a possible return fixture. That game takes place in eleven days’ time.

Obviously, Rashford has been our main source of goals this season. Losing him for any prolonged period, particularly at this stage of the season, is pretty brutal. I’m concerned as the gaffer refused to put a firm return date on Rashy, meaning the problem could still yet be worse than we initially think…

Do you think we will see Marcus Rashford back to his best this season? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
