Marcus Rashford suffered a dead leg in Manchester United’s 3-2 win over Atalanta at Old Trafford on Wednesday night and we are waiting to hear if he will be fit enough to take on Liverpool this weekend.
This could make the forward a slight doubt for the visit of Liverpool on Sunday, but fingers crossed it’s nothing serious and he will be able to play from the start, like he did against Atalanta in the Champions League.
Rashford scored his second goal in as many games following his return from shoulder surgery. He was forced off after the 65th minute and it seemed like a precautionary call from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the time, though there were calls from the stands to see the Uruguayan brought on.

At full time, however, the manager could not confirm if Rashford would definitely be available against Liverpool but expressed his delight at the 23-year-old returning in good form.
“I don’t know,” Solskjaer replied when asked if Rashford would be ready for Liverpool in the Premier League this weekend, as per the Manchester Evening News. “I hope so and I think so. It’s a dead leg. Sometimea that can take longer than what you want but if we treat it well he should be okay.
“He’s worked really hard. His injury was, or [because of] the surgery, he couldn’t train with contact but he’s been training physically and now he’s physically robust.
“It’s about getting his football form back in. Marcus is a natural talent, but he wants to work on his game and he has worked without contact allowed and today he took his goal really well.”
We might need to wait until Friday’s press conference to get a further update on Rashford, so stay tuned for more updates beforte we take on the Scousers.
