Man Utd issue Rashford update
Manchester United have confirmed that Marcus Rashford’s injury is expected to keep him out of action for a number of games, including the team’s upcoming fixture on Thursday.
There is some positive news for Manchester United as it has been announced that Marcus Rashford is likely to recover in time for the team’s run-in and the last few weeks of the season.
Manchester United will likely turn to Anthony Martial to fill the void left by Marcus Rashford’s injury, with the French forward now back to full fitness.
Anthony Martial’s goal against Everton served as a timely reminder of his attacking prowess, with the French international now set to be given more opportunities to impress in the wake of Marcus Rashford’s injury.
The forward will be hoping to make the most of this chance after a frustrating spell on the sidelines.
And speaking ahead of the game, Ten Hag stated that, as well as Martial, United have players that are capable of scoring goals with Rashford not available.
He said: “I think we have players like Bruno [Fernandes], like Jadon Sancho, like Anthony Martial, like Scott McTominay, like Antony.
“We have enough players with the capability to score goals, definitely.”
