Manchester United issue Marcus Rashford injury update following West Ham defeat
United were beaten 2-0 at the London Stadium on the weekend as goals from Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell sealed a damning defeat for Solskjaer‘s side.
United went into the match without Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba through injury, while young striker Mason Greenwood missed the match through tonsilitis.
It meant United went into the match with Rashford as the only recognised senior striker in the squad with the England international tasked with leading the line against West Ham.
Rashford was unable to make a true impact on the match and was forced off through injury an hour into the match when he went down with a muscle injury.
The English forward was replaced by Jesse Lingard for the remainder of the match, and speaking following the defeat Solskjaer gave an update on the extent of his injury.
“We have got to scan him tomorrow,” Solskjaer said after the match.
“He felt his groin. So he will probably be out for a little while. I can update you later when I know a little more.”
Rashford’s injury means that United could be without any recognised striker when they host Rochdale in the Carabao Cup, however Solskjaer is hopeful both Greenwood and Martial will be back for the next Premier League fixture against Arsenal a week on Monday.
“It is just one of these moments, we’ve had historically loads of centre backs the last few years struggling with injuries when we’ve come here. Carrick played centre back, Darren Fletcher played, at the moment it is strikers. Hopefully Mason and Anthony back for definitely Arsenal, and hopefully one for Rochdale.”
