Marcus Rashford will sit out Man United vs Sevilla on Thursday through injury.
Manchester United were pretty dominant against Everton at the weekend, winning a deserved three points – though it wasn’t without a cost.
Late on, Marcus Rashford was spotted holding his groin. He’d succumb to the injury problem and have to be substituted off as a result.
After the game, Erik ten Hag was extremely vocal about how the Premier League doesn’t protect it’s players, by giving United the early kick-off on Saturday following a midweek game on Wednesday. It’s hard to disagree.
As a result, Rashford picked up the injury, leaving us all worried.
Now, The Mirror have an update on the injury, claiming that the key star will not play vs Sevilla this Thursday as the Reds don’t want to risk further damage to the player.
The England international had a scan on Tuesday and will likely miss this match as a precaution. Don’t forget that Rashford recently pulled out of England duty due to a knock.
It seems like the sheer volume of games are starting to take their toll on this United squad. Several players are starting to pick up these niggling injuries as a result of consistently playing three times a week.
Groin injuries vary in severity, though the early report from The Mirror seems to suggest it’s not a serious one. Hopefully, that’s exactly the case and we’re not without Rashford for too long as we’re going to need him for the crucial end-of-season run-in.
My fear here is that without him, United just do not score enough goals. The Reds absolutely need to take a lead back to Seville with them. It’s now time for others to step up in Rashford’s absence.
