Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provides injury update on Marcus Rashford after FA Cup victory over Liverpool

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed Marcus Rashford will require a knee scan on Monday after being substituted late on in Manchester United’s FA Cup fourth round victory over Liverpool. 

Rashford headed straight for the tunnel after being brought off for Anthony Martial with four minutes remaining at Old Trafford.

The England international provided two decisive moments against Jurgen Klopp’s men, finding Mason Greenwood for United’s equaliser and putting the Reds into the lead as the academy youngsters linked up again after the break.

Solskjaer provided an update on Rashford after United secured progression to the fifth round where they will meet West Ham.

“Marcus felt his knee so we’ll have to do a scan,” he said in his post-match press conference.

“Hopefully it won’t be too bad but I’m not a doctor so I’ll have to see tomorrow.”

The United manager added that this was a statement victory after he made five changes from the side that returned to the top of the Premier League in midweek against Fulham.

Bruno Fernandes was initially rested for Donny van de Beek but came on to provide the winning moment with a free-kick past Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson 12 minutes from time.

The Portuguese playmaker almost set up United’s fourth to seal a more comprehensive victory but Edinson Cavani hit the post with a header with Alisson stranded.
