Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer proves Marcus Rashford injury update

Marcus Rashford is facing a few weeks on the sidelines.

The Manchester United striker aggravated a back injury in Wednesday’s FA Cup third-round replay win against Wolves at Old Trafford.

He was absent for the Red Devils’ Premier League trip to Anfield to face league leaders Liverpool .

Speaking before the clash, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Sky Sports : “He [Rashford] got a couple of knocks again and a couple of jolts when he came on against Wolves, and he’s aggravated his back.

“He’s had some trouble before and of course we are going to give him time to recover and rest before we put him back on the pitch.

“He’s always recovered quickly before so let’s hope he does that again.”

When asked how long his potential absence could be, Solskjaer added: “I wouldn’t expect him to be back in the next few weeks and we’ve got a mid-season break.

“I’m not sure we’re going to see him before then, no. We’re going to give him the time he needs.”

Rashford has been in terrific form for Solskjaer’s side this term. The 22-year-old has hit 19 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions.
