Is Marcus Rashford fit to face Wolves? Manchester United star suffers unspecified leg injury ahead of Premier League run-in


Manchester United are yet to secure a spot in the Champions League next season, and now, Marcus Rashford has suffered an injury.

The Red Devils have lost their last two league games against Brighton and West Ham to allow Liverpool to close the gap, and they face Wolves next.

However, ahead of their crunch clash at Old Trafford, Rashford has been ruled as a major doubt by Erik ten Hag.

Will Rashford be fit to face Wolves?

The 25-year-old has scored 16 goals for Man United in the top-flight this season and has been one of the standout players in the Premier League.

The England international has been reborn under Ten Hag and scored the winner against the Midlands outfit in the reverse fixture.

He has also largely avoided injuries this year, playing in 53 games across all competitions.

However, with just four league ties and the FA Cup final remaining, misfortune has struck Rashford at the wrong time.

The forward played the full 90 minutes against West Ham last weekend and has picked up an unspecified leg issue in training.

Man United have plenty of injury problems, with Lisandro Martinez among those who are out.

But to lose Rashford at this stage of the campaign would be a huge blow despite the striker not being in the best form in recent weeks.

Ten Hag revealed in his pre-match press conference that the England international is unlikely to play against Wolves.

He said: “Marcus Rashford is doubtful. He has a problem on his leg, an injury, so he is a big question mark for [Saturday].”

Pushed for further information, Ten Hag responded: “Doubtful, more than doubtful. A big question mark.”

So it doesn’t sound too promising for Rashford.

The Red Devils have played four games this season without their star man and have managed two wins, but it remains to be seen if they will be without him this weekend.
