Manchester United are anxiously waiting to hear the extent of Marcus Rashford’s injury, which could potentially sideline him during a crucial part of their Cup treble bid. The striker hinted at his injury on social media, leaving fans concerned about his availability for the upcoming games. United have already won the Carabao Cup and are now fighting for two more trophies, while also aiming to secure a place in the Premier League top four.
Rashford has been enjoying the best goalscoring season of his career, having scored 28 goals so far. However, he limped out of Saturday’s win over Everton with a groin injury, raising concerns about his fitness. The players and coaching staff have been given two days off following three games in the last week, and Rashford and manager Erik ten Hag will return to their Carrington training ground on Tuesday for a full assessment of the injury.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding Rashford’s injury, he posted a cryptic update on his Instagram Stories, saying: “Plenty more in the tank.” Fans were relieved to hear this, with one saying: “It’s not over for him.” Another declared: “Let’s hope he’s okay.” One noted: “Thank God it won’t be anything serious.”
The good news for Ten Hag was the return to action of midfielder Christian Eriksen, while Anthony Martial got back on the score sheet in his third substitute appearance after being out with a hip injury. Casemiro has also now served his four-match suspension.
The Red Devils are facing four key games in 11 days from Thursday when they take on Sevilla in their Europa League quarter-final first leg. They then travel to Nottingham Forest on Sunday before the return leg against Sevilla on Thursday of next week followed by their FA Cup semi-final against Brighton at Wembley just three days later.
United will be hoping that Rashford’s injury is not too serious and that he will be available for these crucial games. The striker’s form has been instrumental in their success this season, and his absence could be a major blow to their Cup treble bid. However, with Rashford’s positive update on social media, fans will be hoping that he will be back on the pitch soon and ready to help United secure more silverware.
