Marcus Rashford leaves the pitch with an injury against West Ham United.

Solskjaer provides an update on Rashford injury

Wednesday 25 September 2019 19:30

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed Marcus Rashford’s groin injury may not be as serious as he initially feared.

The striker had to be withdrawn during Sunday’s Premier League defeat against West Ham United, with the boss stating after the game that he feared Marcus could be sidelined for a number of weeks with the problem.

However, speaking to MUTV ahead of Wednesday’s Carabao Cup clash with Rochdale, Ole gave some more optimistic news on our no.10.

Ole has made nine changes to face Rochdale and explained why Angel Gomes and Diogo Dalot are not involved.

“Marcus, no he’s recovering,” Ole told MUTV. “He’s not very, very bad. We hope to see him before the international break.”

After Wednesday’s game with Rochdale, the Reds have three matches before the pause in domestic action, starting with the meeting with Arsenal in the Premier League on Monday, followed by our first away fixture of this year’s Europa League group stage against AZ Alkmaar and then a trip to Newcastle United on 6 October.

A further update on Rashford's comeback is likely to be made later in the week.

While the forward may not have recovered in time for the game with Rochdale, one man who is fit for the cup game is Mason Greenwood, with the youngster recovering from a bout of tonsillitis which ruled him out of the game with West Ham United at the weekend.

Another player back in the team is Paul Pogba, who has missed the last three games with an ankle injury.
