Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided a fresh fitness update on striker Marcus Rashford.
After Danny Welbeck had given Brighton the lead, Rashford had leveled the game for United before Mason Greenwood scored the winner, but the Englishman was substituted in the 72nd minute, with reports that he might be out of fitness following a recent injury.
Speaking after the game, Solskjaer admitted that the player suffered a knock and was set for further tests ahead of their midweek Europa League tie against Granada.
“I’m not sure. He got caught with a tackle so he had to come off. Let’s see how he goes again. Marcus doesn’t want to miss any games or any minutes, but he had to come off,” Solskjaer is quoted by the club’s portal.
Rashford has been off and on with injuries and was ruled out of England’s last week’s outings despite reporting for duty with them. But despite the setbacks, he has been one of the most consistent players in the team notching 19 goals and providing 10 assists from 46 appearances across all competitions this season.
