Marcus Rashford a doubt for Manchester United this weekend follow Cup injury

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford suffered a back injury during the Red Devils’ 1-nil win over Wolves in an FA Cup Third Round replay Wednesday.

According to BBC Sport, Rashford’s participation in Sunday’s Premier League matchup against Liverpool is up in the air.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer noted that the striker’s fitness will be tested in the coming days in the lead-up to the match with the league leaders at Anfield.

“He’s a quick healer and he’ll play through some pain, definitely, if he’s capable and it’s not a bad, bad injury, but we’ve seen that he’s struggled lately. But that’s been more when he’s been tired. He wasn’t on long enough to be tired so it might be something that just happened there and then. He’s been absolutely top this season so we’ll do anything and everything we can to get him fit for Sunday. If he’s not, then we’ll play without him,” Solskjaer said.

Rashford has been a rather important cog for United over the last month plus, having played in 13 matches since the beginning of December, starting 11, with nine goals to his credit. He came on as a substitute in the 64th minute Wednesday.
