MARCUS RASHFORD could miss Manchester United’s vital clash at Huddersfield with a shoulder injury.

The striker was replaced by Alexis Sanchez after 65 minutes of yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Old Trafford.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed: “Rashy’s struggled with his shoulder and he came through an hour, but couldn’t do more.

“He was strapped before game. You could see his shoulder was hurting.”

England ace Rashford, 21, who is a £100million Barcelona target, has not scored for six game and fans are growing concerned by his form.

And some have urged Solskjaer to give either Mason Greenwood, Angel Gomes or Tahith Chong a chance at the John Smith’s Stadium in his absence.

RASHFORD REPLACEMENT

One tweeted: “Please let @MarcusRashford rest until end of season.

“It’s time to play with our young talent such as Greenwood, Gomes & Chong.. Give them more first team playtime.. 😆 #GGMU”

Another begged: “Get greenwood or chong in since Rashford is injured, Lingard possibly injured n the other 2 not in form.”

Striker Greenwood, 17, has played 28 minutes of senior football this season but scored a staggering 30 goals for the Under-18s and U23s.

He and Gomes, 18, both scored in Friday’s 3-2 loss to Wolves U23s while Chong, 19, was involved in the first goal – all watched by Solskjaer.

Eric Bailly was also hit by a devastating injury midway through the second half when he challenged Mateo Kovacic.


The Ivory Coast centre-back, who has made just 12 Premier League appearances this season, wept in the dressing room after fearing an ACL knee damage.

Solskjaer must now tinker with his squad to face Huddersfield in their penultimate Prem game of the season.

United are three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea in sixth and face a battle to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
