Marcus Rashford made it two goals in two Manchester United games since his return last night.

Rashford followed up his strike at Leicester on Saturday by kickstarted the comeback against Atalanta.

The England international looks sharp and fit and hit the crossbar in the first half before he scored in the second.

But it was not all good news for Rashford, as he limped off in the second half, to be replaced by Edinson Cavani.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked for an update on the injury after the match.

As per United’s official website, he said: ““It was a dead leg and sometimes it can take longer than what you want.

 

On whether the problem will keep Rashford out of Sunday’s huge clash with Liverpool, Solskjaer said: ““I don’t know. I hope so and I think so. If we treat it well, he should be okay.”

After the game, Rashford responded to a joke from a United fan on Twitter about his latest injury.

Solskjaer had said before the game that Rashford is not yet fit enough to play 90 minutes.

That makes it likely that the winger would have come off at some point in the second half anyway, even without the injury.

It is a relief to hear that the problem is not linked to the shoulder injury which kept him out of the start of the season.

He also sent a message to the United fans, thanking them for the atmosphere inside the ground last night.

Something similar will be needed against Liverpool, where Rashford will hope to be fit and continue his scoring form.
