Just when you thought things could get any worse for Manchester United, the team’s MVP so far this season goes down with an injury.
Marcus Rashford suffered a groin injury during Manchester United’s defeat at West Ham. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the news during Sunday’s post-match press conference. Now. the England international will have to go for a scan. The medical staff will announce the timetable for his return once the results are in.
He felt his groin. We’ll do a scan tomorrow to see how badly he’s injured. I don’t know how long he’ll be out, I’m not a doctor. But he’ll probably be out for a little while, Solskjaer said. Rashford limped off just after the hour-mark after going down unchallenged in the box.
The injury comes at the worst possible time for United
What makes this even more complicated is the lack of options United currently have on the attacking end. Anthony Martial is down with an injury as well, while Mason Greenwood missed the trip to the London Stadium due to tonsillitis.
There did appear to be some positive news with Ole, however, as the manager said he hopes the attacking re-inforcements will return soon.
Hopefully Mason and Anthony will be back for the Arsenal game and at least one of them for Rochdale.
Rashford has scored three goals in six Premier League appearances for The Red Devils this season.
