Man Utd face race of time to ensure Rashford's fit for Liverpool Clash

Share This
Manchester United are currently sweating on the fitness of Marcus Rashford ahead of the clash against Liverpool on Sunday.




The Red Devils travel to Anfield to face Premier League leaders at 5:30pm.

Rashford was substituted in the 4-0 win against Norwich last week, despite scoring a brace in the game.

The English international came on for Mason Greenwood during the 3rd round FA Cup replay against Wolverhampton last night.


Just after few minutes on the pitch at old Trafford, he went down holding his back.

Reports suggest that he suffered a back injury and he was immediately replaced by Jessie Lingard.

Red Devils coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed Rashford would be assessed by the club's medical team and admitted to taking a risk in bringing his star attacker on to try to win the game.

"Yes [the substitution] backfired," Solskjaer said to BT Sport. "You got to take [a chance] once in a while.

"He's a quick healer and he'll play through some pain, definitely, if he's capable, if it's not a bad, bad injury," Solskjaer told reporters at a news conference.

"But we've seen that he's struggled lately - but more when he's been tired.

"He wasn't on long enough to be tired so I think it might have been something that just happened there and then.

"He's been absolutely top this season so we'll do everything we can to get him fit for Sunday.

"If he's not then we'll play without him."

"It's football, I'll never ever complain about all the injuries we've got," he added.

"That's just part and parcel of it and at the moment that's Marcus. He's been available and fit all season so you can't complain."


Meanwhile, Rashford took to his social media to plead to the fans and his teammates after he couldn't continue the game.




Juan Mata goal earned Manchester United the win to qualify for the fourth round tie.
