The last thing we need going into the big game against Liverpool on Sunday is an injury to Marcus Rashford.
Rashford has returned from shoulder surgery with two goals in as many games and he will be bulling to take that form into the game against the Scousers at the weekend.
The England international looks sharp and has been talking about reaching his potential in recent interviews with club media (via ManUtd.com).
But United were dealt a blow as he limped off in the second half with a dead leg, to be replaced by Edinson Cavani.
After the full-time whistle, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked for an update on his star forward.
The manager said: “It was a dead leg and sometimes it can take longer than what you want.”
He added that he doesn’t know whether Rashford will be fit in time to face Liverpool, saying: “I don’t know. I hope so and I think so. If we treat it well, he should be okay.”
Rashford took to Twitter when he saw the funny side of a joke from a United fan about his latest knock.

At least the injury isn’t linked to the shoulder problem he had last season.
