Rashford is raring to go in Wolves replay
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Marcus Rashford is ready to chase more goals as the Reds head into Wednesday’s Emirates FA Cup replay against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Ahead of the Wolves game, Solskjaer confirmed the withdrawal of our top scorer was just a precaution.
“Yeah, he's fine. Marcus is a young boy that I don't want to use too much for his own benefit, because you don't want to burn him out,”Ole told reporters at Tuesday’s pre-match press conference.
“But he's so energetic and professional and he's raring to go again.”

“He's still working on his penalties, his free-kicks and the shots from outside the box,”said Ole,
“but we are focused more on his runs into the box and getting into the dangerous areas for the tap-ins, the easy ones, the ones I scored.
“Those are the ones that will get you between five and 10 goals a season, and take you from 15 to 25 [in total].”
“Yeah, that was obviously something we did work on with Juan and Marcus,”said Solskjaer.
“It was something that Marcus is working on all the time.
“He's mixing up wing play with centre-forward play. I think he and Anthony have rotated a little bit more lately as well and I think that's because they're confident and they feel good about themselves,”added the manager.
