Marcus Rashford may yet be fit to take on Sevilla in the second leg.
Manchester United’s second-half capitulation at home to Sevilla stung. The Red Devils were by far and away the better team on the day, however, they didn’t put their opponents away and everything that could go wrong, did go wrong.
Erik ten Hag will be disappointed with the overall attitude and application of his team, though the injuries suffered to Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane will be the biggest concerns.
The tie is now finely poised at 2-2 as United gear up to travel to Spain, though the Reds simply shouldn’t be in a position where they now have to win this match in a country they’ve historically struggled.
Well, their task could become a little easier if Marcus Rashford can indeed return. As things stand, the key Man United star is given ‘a chance’ at featuring against Sevilla by manager, Ten Hag.
When asked about whether Rashford could be available vs Sevilla, the gaffer said:
“There is a chance but I can’t confirm it at the moment,” Ten Hag told the media, including The Guardian.
Rashy suffered the groin problem against Everton just under a week ago, with Ten Hag initially ruling out the Englishman for at least the next few games.
Well, although it looks like Rashford will be unavailable to play this weekend, he’s now being given a shot at featuring in just under one weeks’ time. Even if he isn’t passed fit for Sevilla away, it does let us all know that the problem isn’t as serious as we initially thought.
It goes without saying, Rashford has been the vital player in terms of goalscoring this term and the sooner he’s back, the better. The only concern I have is that United will now rush him back into action because they’re going to need him now more than ever. Hopefully, that won’t be the case.
