Marcus Rashford issues injury update after being forced out of Man Utd’s draw against Liverpool

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford was substituted with an injury during the Red Devils’ 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon and has now given a clue to a possible absence

Marcus Rashford has assured Manchester United fans that he “will be okay” despite his injury withdrawal.

The Red Devils forward was named in Erik ten Hag’s line-up for Sunday’s 2-2 draw with fierce rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford. He lasted just over an hour before being replaced by Antony with a potential injury.

Ten Hag gave an optimistic update shortly after the final whistle. He said: “I’m not sure, but I don’t think it will be long term.”

Now, Rashford has also allayed fears over a long-term absence on social media. Posting on Instagram, the 26-year-old wrote:

“Unfortunately, we couldn’t see the game out. [Heart emoji] to my niece Natalia, my mascot for the day.”

A fan replied to his post with the message: “Hope you’re okay Rashy,” to which the striker replied: “I will be okay!” with a praying emoji.

Any injury would be another frustration for Rashford in what has been a poor season. He has scored just eight times in all competitions this term.

Viral footage shared of his performance against Chelsea saw him receive severe criticism from supporters. However, Ten Hag leapt to his defence and restored Rashford to his starting line-up against Liverpool.

Explaining why Rashford retained his faith, the Dutchman said: “Rashy didn’t start on Thursday [against Chelsea] but we have a short slot and we have to manage the load of games. We expect a lot from our front players.

“Antony did so good, he gave a lot, went deep into his physical outputs, and today Rashford has to show that, especially in a game against Liverpool. That is a game for him, he’s one of our leaders and he should have a big impact today.”

Rashford is now three games without a goal in the Premier League. He will be aiming to get back on form this weekend as the Red Devils travel to Bournemouth, should he be fit to play.
