Marcus Rashford’s back injury gave him a five month ‘break’ between matches.

For several weeks of his recovery, all he was allowed to do was gym work. And it shows.

The United forward shared a picture from Carrington with his lean ripped muscles showing where he has been bulking up.

Former United youngster DJ Buffonge replied to his message, quipping, ‘Someone been banging gym!”

This comes days after Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham commented on Rashford’s new look physique last week.

Will Rashford start again tonight?

Normally Marcus Rashford would be an automatic starter for United, and he should be.

 

But manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to work out whether the England international is ready to start his second game in five days, having just had five months out.

Rashford played all 90 minutes against Tottenham and got into good positions, even though it was noticeable he was missing his usual sharpness.

Obviously Rashford looks in great shape, but United will be reliant on testing in training to see if he is ready to start again tonight against Sheffield United.

If Rashford does start, he is likely to be rested against Norwich City on Saturday, and it is quite possible he will not play all 90 minutes as he did in the draw at Tottenham.

Rashford will be keen to get back among the goals. He is on 19 in all competitions this season and reaching 20 for the first time in his career is an important hurdle to hit, and then surpass.
