Will Rashford be fit to face Liverpool?
At the start of a fascinating press conference, Ole provided this update on our no.10's fitness...
A big game and there’s a big question mark over Marcus Rashford. Is he going to be fit? “I can't tell you now. As I said with Harry a few weeks ago, of course we're going to give him the absolute amount of time to find out. We're going to do some more checks and treatment with him today. Yesterday of course was just a recovery day anyway and some treatment for him. I haven't seen him this morning, but I'm not going to hold my breath. I would probably think that he wouldn't be ready, but let's see. There's still 48 hours, more than that, so let's see.” Obviously no one has beaten Liverpool in the Premier League so far this season. What gives you the belief that you can go to Anfield and do that? “We need a very, very good performance to go there and win, but we beat City last month, we had the PSG game. We need to get to the level of those performances, definitely, when you go away against the team that is top of the league. The last two performances we've had against Liverpool as well, to be fair, we've played them at Old Trafford twice, we've drawn twice and been closest to winning both of those games, so we've got some games to look back at and that will give us some belief, loads of belief, that if we perform to our best we've got a chance to win.”
