Manchester United are sweating to learn the full extent of Marcus Rashford’s injury after the 25-year-old limped off the pitch in last weekend’s 2-0 win over Everton in the Premier League.
Rashford looked to be holding his groin as he was withdrawn from the game just minutes after assisting Anthony Martial’s goal, with Erik ten Hag hoping his talisman will recover quickly in time for a gruelling final six weeks of the season.
Rashford has scored 28 goals in all competitions so far this season – the joint-most of any player in a single season since Sir Alex Ferguson retired 10 years ago.
Now, there is an update on the situation as United have reportedly made a decision on Rashford’s inclusion in this week’s Europa League tie against Sevilla.
According to The Mirror, United have opted not to risk Rashford in Thursday’s quarter-final tie against Sevilla, with the 25-year-old expected to watch from the sidelines.
In a positive update, it’s claimed that Rashford has undergone a scan on his injury and will only miss the game as a precaution, hinting that his injury may not be as serious as previously feared.
Furthermore, it’s added that the only scenario that would see Rashford feature in the game is if United’s medical team deems the injury will not be aggravated by his involvement.
United are in for a tough run-in this season and it is absolutely paramount that United’s best player and their top goalscorer is protected and given the chance to recover fully.
A fully fit Rashford for four weeks is far better than a half-fit Rashford for six weeks and that will most likely be the conclusion Ten Hag comes to.
united should play mctominay as a central striker i think he would do a good job
No I kick against that..I will love to see him play free role such that he can be seen supporting the midfield as well as defends and still strike if we’re pressing
Exactly what I have in mind.
Let the coach decide on the best option. I would like to see more playing time for Facundo. He’s a brilliant player…. just that he needs a bit of time on the pitch.
mactominay as central sriker 100%
