After the win at Atalanta, coach Solskjaer did not confirm whether Marcus Rashford is ready for the match against Liverpool this weekend.
Rashford scored 2 goals in the last 2 matches
In the match Man Utd won against Atalanta with a score of 3-2, Marcus Rashford started and played well. The England international was the one who scored to shorten the score to 1-2 for the Red Devils, sparking a spectacular comeback at Old Trafford.
However, more than 10 minutes after scoring, Marcus Rashford had to leave the field to make way for Cavani. After the match, coach Solskjaer revealed that he replaced Marcus Rashford not for tactical reasons but because the 23-year-old striker was injured.
Specifically, Marcus Rashford suffered from numbness in his legs leading to loss of feeling after a collision with the opponent. On MU’s homepage, the Norwegian strategist said he did not know if Rashford could play in the English derby against Liverpool on October 24.
“I don’t know,” Solsa replied when asked if Marcus Rashford would be available for the game against Liverpool.
“I hope he can and I think so. He has numbness in his feet. Sometimes these injuries take a long time to heal, but if he is treated well, he will not have any problems,” Solsa said of the player’s condition.
Also in this interview, coach Solskjaer praised Rashford for scoring an important goal against Atalanta. According to Solsa, the England international is a player with natural talent, and has worked hard to practice during his injury to regain his best form and condition when he returns.
Before the victory at Atalanta, Rashford “shot” in the match Man Utd lost to Leicester City in the 8th round of the Premier League. This is the England player’s first match this season since returning to play after more than 2 months of shoulder injury.
Thus, Rashford has scored 2 goals after 91 minutes of playing for Man Utd in this campaign. Therefore, losing a player who is in good form like the 23-year-old striker in the great battle with Liverpool will be a big loss for the Red Devils. However, according to the Manchester Evening News, Rashford’s injury is not serious, so the star can recover for the upcoming battle at Old Trafford.
