Marcus Rashford sustained a dead leg in Manchester United’s 3-2 win against Atalanta on Wednesday night at Old Trafford, and we’re waiting to hear if he’ll be fit to face Liverpool this weekend.
This could put the forward in danger for Sunday’s match against Liverpool, but fingers crossed it’s nothing severe and he’ll be able to start like he did against Atalanta in the Champions League.
Following his return from shoulder surgery, Rashford scored his second goal in as many outings. He was taken off after the 65th minute, which appeared to be a cautious move by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

However, after full time, the manager could not say whether Rashford would be available for the match against Liverpool, but he voiced his satisfaction at the 23-year-return old’s to form.
According to the Manchester Evening News, when asked if Rashford would be ready to face Liverpool in the Premier League this weekend, Solskjaer answered, “I don’t know.” “I hope and believe so. It’s a stubbed toe. That may take longer than you expect, but if we treat him well, he should be fine.
“He’s worked really hard. His injury was, or [because of] the surgery, he couldn’t train with contact but he’s been training physically and now he’s physically robust.
“It’s about getting his football form back in. Marcus is a natural talent, but he wants to work on his game and he has worked without contact allowed and today he took his goal really well.”
We may have to wait until Friday’s press conference for additional information on Rashford, so keep tuned for more information as we prepare to face the Scousers.
