There was more bad team news for Man Utd in their Premier League draw with Liverpool FC at Old Trafford.

There was yet another injury scare for Manchester United during their 2-2 draw with Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Erik ten Hag’s side managed to salvage a deserved point from the captivating clash despite a disastrous first-half performance that could have seen them concede two or three times. Luis Diaz gave Liverpool a deserved lead in the match when he followed in unmarked from an early corner, with the only positive for United being that they only trailed by a single goal at the break.

Stunning strikes from Bruno Fernandes and Kobbie Mainoo turned the game on its head in the second-half, before a Mohamed Salah penalty levelled for Liverpool after a reckless challenge from Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the box.

It certainly felt like a point gained rather than two dropped, but it came at a cost after Marcus Rashford limped off the pitch twenty minutes into the second-half.

The England international was clearly in some discomfort and signalled to the United bench that he wanted to be taken off before he finally went down in a heap and was replaced by Antony. It is unclear what the injury actually was, or for how long he is expected to be out.

Rashford’s injury scare was the second of the day for United supporters after Scott McTominay missed out on a place in the matchday squad due to injury.

McTominay’s injury setback means there have now been 56 separate cases of injury and illness that have caused a senior United player to miss a competitive game this season.
