Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms Marcus Rashford injury concern ahead of Sheffield United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms Marcus Rashford injury concern ahead of Sheffield United

Fernandes makes the difference

The Red Devils of coursed returned to FA Cup action a short time ago, in a 4th-round meeting with Jurgen Klopp’s men.

The matchup marked the 2nd clash between the bitter rivals in the space of the last week, with a Premier League showdown last Sunday having eventually played out into a drab 0-0 stalemate.

To say that the action at Old Trafford this evening proved of a more compelling nature, though, would be an understatement.

A thrilling 90 minutes eventually saw hosts United emerge on the right side of a 3-2 scoreline, to book their spot in the FA Cup’s last-16.

Mohamed Salah opened the game’s scoring inside 20 minutes, dinking over Dean Henderson after being slipped in courtesy of a pinpoint Roberto Firmino pass.

The home side, though, pulled level less than 10 minutes later, after Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood combined to devastating effect:

And United’s gifted young attackers were back at it again shortly after the interval, this time with Rashford the eventual scorer.

Liverpool, though, to their credit, refused to be deterred, and hit back just before the hour-mark, when a fine team move finished with Salah bagging his 2nd of the day:

Just when it looked as though the visitors were beginning to get on top, however, the game’s telling moment was forthcoming 12 minutes from time.

Shortly after being introduced off the bench, Bruno Fernandes stepped up to lash a typically inch-perfect free-kick beyond Alisson in the Liverpool goal, securing a 3-2 victory for Solskjaer’s men in the process:

Rashford blow?

As outlined above, though, on an otherwise positive evening for United, fans of the Red Devils have since been provided with some altogether concerning news.

This comes in the form of a potential injury picked up by Marcus Rashford.

As confirmed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer post-match, the scorer of his side’s 2nd goal this evening has since complained of a knee problem, with a scan on Monday set to establish the extent of the issue.

As such, Rashford appears to be an immediate doubt to feature in Manchester United’s next outing, versus Sheffield United on Wednesday night:
