Marcus Rashford has given Manchester United a massive lift ahead of the Red Devils’ game against Granada.
The Europa League is the only trophy hope Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has this season. With that in mind, I’d expect our Baby Faced Assassin will go all out in an effort to win it.
Granted, the draw could have been harder than a two-legged tie against Granada. They’re a decent La Liga outfit, no more, no less. However, they have to be respected as they’ve managed to make it into the last eight.
Whatever side United put out there should have more than enough quality to get the job done. One player we thought wouldn’t make it through injury is Marcus Rashford. However, there’s hope yet…
United have been offered an injury boost, as the key man is back in training ahead of the Granada game that takes place in Spain tomorrow. Thanks to journalist Simon Peach for the snap:
Whether Rashford is going to be involved in the game remains to be seen. However, this is a young man who is more than willing to put his body on the line for the cause – and you can bet he’ll be pressing hard to start this one as he loves helping his teammates.
It’s down to Solskjaer to analyse and evaluate whether Rashford is fit enough. Personally, I’d leave him on the bench for this one. If he’s needed, bring him on with 30 minutes to play but if not, wrap him up in cotton wool and keep him fresh for the return leg.
I honestly wouldn’t even consider playing him in the Premier League this weekend, either. That dream is gone for another year, let Rashford rest up and save all his energy for our Europa League run.
