Marcus Rashford out for up to three months with back injury

Manchester United have been dealt a huge injury blow to English forward Marcus Rashford.

Rashford missed the game against Liverpool on Sunday after limping off during the midweek victory over Wolves.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed he was set for a spell on the sidelines and it emerged during the match that he had sustained a double stress fracture in his back.

Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler confirmed the news live on air, suggesting Marcus Rashford would be sidelined for up to two to three months.

Speaking after the game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the England international faces a spell on the sidelines.

Confirming the news of Rashford’s serious injury setback, Solskjaer said: “He has suffered a bad injury.

“It is a stress fracture that happened against Wolves. He will be out for a while for us.

“He won’t be back until after the mid-season break. Usually a stress fracture is six weeks to heel and then he will need to recover after that.”

Rashford picked up a knock in the victory over Norwich last week and started on the bench in the cup game against Wolves.

He was later introduced in the game by Solskjaer but was forced off 16 minutes later, with the Red devils manager conceding the gamble had not paid off.
