The Red Devils are desperate for a result following the midweek catasrophe at Old Trafford

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has been dropped from the Red Devils squad for today’s trip to Fulham.

The England international made headlines this week after it was revealed he had been ‘partying’ following the 3-0 derby day defeat to Manchester City.

Manager Erik ten Hag explained that Rashford had apologised for the incident and all had now been forgotten, however, there is no place in the squad for the 26-year-old today.

The forward has travelled to West London with the rest of the squad and his absence is reportedly down to a failed medical test prior to the game at Craven Cottage and not in relation to the fall-out of the past week.

Following the release of the team news at 11:30am, Manchester United released a statement to explain the absence of their number 10.

It reads: ‘Marcus took a heavy knock to his leg in training and was unable to finish the last session before the game.
