Marcus Rashford may not be available as Man United take on Bournemouth tomorrow.
Manchester United take on Bournemouth tomorrow, at Old Trafford in a home game that the Red Devils simply have to win. Erik ten Hag’s side have been decent enough in the matches they should emerge victorious in this season, so let’s hope that trend continues.
Make no mistake about it, this will not be a gimme’. Our players will have to perform to the required standards in order to win all three points, keeping the pressure on the teams above as a result.
They’ll be no Victor Lindelof in this game, after the Swede came off at half-time with an apparent problem in midweek. Now, another United star has emerged as a doubt; Marcus Rashford. He missed Friday’s training session with illness and his availability is up in the air.
It’s reputable United Twitter account @UtdDistrict with the news, with the information coming directly from the club.

This could not have come at a worse time for Rashford. No doubt all this will do is further fuel the fire that suggests the Englishman is discontent with the current regime. Honestly, I just think he’s in bad form and the only way to get out of it is to keep putting the effort in and build those confidence levels again.
On the flip side, we have to be honest, United looked way better on Wednesday without Rashy in the side. Antony put in the required effort and you could tell that the press was far better against Chelsea than it has been recently.
If Rashy is missing tomorrow, and the man from Brazil plays well again, the #10 may not find it easy to break back into the side…
