What a nightmare!
Marcus Rashford was named as a substitute for tonight’s FA Cup replay against Wolves at Old Trafford.
The decision was made to give Rashford a rest for Sunday’s big game against Liverpool in the Premier League. We are the only side to take points off the Scousers this season and should be aiming to beat them at the weekend.
But that task has become more difficult with Rashford likely to miss the game.
Rashford came on in the second half to replace Daniel James. The young Wales international didn’t have one of his best games as he gave away possession too much — but did his best to track back whenever United were without the ball.
It goes without saying that Rashford is United’s best player at the moment. The last two months have seen him in goalscoring form but the question now is — how long will he be out for?
He was replaced by Jesse Lingard.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to pass comment on Rashford’s injury after the match.

Why just why would you risk him with the game on Sunday

Doesn’t look good for Rashford. Only been on for 15 minutes but he’s going off and straight down the tunnel. United have got Liverpool on Sunday.

Rashford’s been using a bone healing device recently and had it with him again when the squad gathered pre-match. Clearly carrying an injury of some kind, regardless of the circumstances of that knock. #mufc

The Reds are still winning 1-0, thanks to a Juan Mata goal.
