Manchester United have a Marcus Rashford fitness concern, with the Englishman suffering from a knee problem.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would beat Jurgen Klopp yesterday, with Manchester United running out 3-2 winners – and deservedly so, too.
It was Bruno Fernandes who’d once again write the headlines, though much of the good work was done by United’s second-top scorer; Marcus Rashford.
However, the game was marred by an apparent injury to the Englishman. Rashford would be subbed off as the game was winding down. He’d head straight down the tunnel which immediately left us all concerned.
After the game, the Baby Faced Assassin would confirm the Rashford injury issue, with the Reds now sweating on the fitness of their key star ahead of the Sheffield United game.
Check out what Solskjaer had to say here:
“Let’s hope so. His knee was bothering him,” Solskjaer told reporters including ManUtd.com. “[He’ll have a] scan tomorrow and we’ll see where we are.”
The first thing I will say is knee injuries aren’t to be messed with. The fact that Rashford is having a scan on the problem suggests that United are somewhat concerned.
With that in mind, I’d be mightily surprised if we see Rashford take to the field on Wednesday evening. Let’s be honest, we should be beating Sheffield United with or without our #10. So why risk him even if he feels like his body is ready?
At this point, we’re all just praying it’s nothing long-term. Eric Bailly suffered a knee problem not too long ago which kept him ruled out for half-a-season. A lot depends on whether surgery is required, but as Rashford’s age, no risks should be taken with long-term thinking no doubt in United’s mind.
Get well soon, Rashy! We hope to see you back out there shortly.
