Man Utd star Marcus Rashford set for scan as Solskjaer confirms striker picked up knee injury vs Liverpool

MARCUS RASHFORD is set to have a scan on the knee injury that forced him off during the 3-2 win over Liverpool.

The England star played a key role in sending Manchester United into the FA Cup fifth round after bagging a goal and an assist against their bitter rivals at Old Trafford.

Rashford first played the pass of the match to set up Mason Greenwood for the Red Devils' first before he slotted home their second.

But he sparked fears that he might be set for a spell on the sidelines after limping down the tunnel in the closing stages on Sunday.

Anthony Martial was sent on to replace Rashford and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted he was unsure about the fitness of his star frontman.

When quizzed whether Three Lions ace Rashford was ok, the United boss told BBC Sport: "Let's hope so.

"His knee was bothering him. So a scan tomorrow and we'll see where we are."

On Rashford's performance, Solskjaer added: "Marcus has played a little bit up front, down the right and down the left.

"We felt if we could switch the ball early today to either side, we could attack them, because Liverpool defend on the front foot and you've got to be quick on the ball. I thought we did that well."

United ultimately gained the advantage over Liverpool after an end-to-end game and Solskjaer lauded his side's overall performance.


He said: "We really played some good stuff in periods, good goals we scored, we know we have to defend well against them of course.

"And I thought we managed to react well. Towards the end there's always some moments there but I thought we kept them away."

United have now set up a fifth round tie against West Ham as they bid to better their semi-final run in the FA Cup last season.
