Bad News For United As Solskjaer Confirm Length Of Rashford Injury

Manchester United manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer has confirmed Marcus Rashford may miss weekend clash against West Ham following a shoulder injury sustained in last night’s loss to Paris Saint Germain at Old Trafford.

The 23-year-old striker drew United level in the first-half after Neymar opened scoring for the Parisians,

but saw fortunes turn against him in the second-half after a second goal for the visitors, as he was forced off the remainder of the game.

Speaking after the final whistle, a disappointed Solskjaer confirmed the striker is struggling with a shoulder injury that will require medical attention. 

“It’s just niggling him, that shoulder injury,”

 the manager told BT Sport. 

“Let’s see how quickly he can recover. Let’s hope he can be ready for the West Ham game. But we don’t know.”

David De Gea might also be doubtful for the West Ham game, after the United goalkeeper was seen struggling with an apparent injury during the second half against PSG.

The no.1 made a stunning one-handed save to push Mitchel Bakker’s shot wide in the 68th minute, but was quickly grimacing and later went down to the ground.

Solskjaer gave no update on David’s fitness in his post-media media commitments, so hopefully the Spaniard is not seriously hurt.

Manchester United squad the chance to secure qualification into the round of 16 in the Champions League last night with a 1-3 hapless loss to the visitors after drawing level in the first-half.

Chances of qualifying for the knockout stage now seems tight for United as they would be looking to avoid a loss against RB Leipzig in the final group stage match if they are to stand any chance of qualification.

United will now travel to West Ham at the weekend with hopes of rekindling their confidence ahead of crucial Leipzig clash.
