Rashford knee injury ahead of Man Utd’s game vs Sheffield United – Solksjaer’s update

Since his stellar showing in the FA Cup against Liverpool, the Norwegian has been sweating on the fitness of Marcus Rashford.

Ahead of Manchester United’s meeting with Sheffield United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given an update on Marcus Rashford‘s knee injury.

In the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday, Rashford scored his 15th goal of the season during United’s 3-2 victory over Liverpool.

The International player of England also registered an assist to cap a superb all-round showing, but after being replaced by Anthony Martial late on, he was seen limping down the Old Trafford tunnel.

In a press conference on Tuesday, Ole stated: “Marcus is available, yeah, he trained this morning. He is available for selection.

“He tweaked his knee a little bit but trained fully this morning. It’s a good place to be.”

Talking about Mason Greenwood, “We think Mason is going to be very important in the second half of the season but it’s not just going happen by itself. He scored against West Ham a while back as well and was expected to kick on,” he said.

“He’s taken steps, he’s grown, he’s more mature and he’s been training with Edinson Cavani for half a season, he’s learning good habits, and whoever doesn’t learn from players like him, or Bruno [Fernandes] or the players we’ve brought in, that’s a pity.

“I’m very confident that Mason will chip in with good performances and with goals and assists.”

Talking about Edi Cavani, “We could go on and on and on, but his experience and attitude, of course, that’s given us a lesson, every single one of us.”
