Marcus Rashford has eased Manchester United’s injury concerns after he was forced off during their 2-2 draw with Liverpool at the weekend.

The England international lasted little over an hour before he signalled to the bench that he wanted to be replaced and fell to a heap on the pitch before he was eventually substituted for Antony.

Rashford’s early withdrawal was another injury scare for United, who were already without Raphael Varane, Jonny Evans and Scott McTominay because of their own injury issues.

Speaking after the match, manager Erik ten Hag was hopeful that Rashford’s injury was not a serious one. "I'm not sure, but I don't think it will be long term," he told MUTV following the 2-2 draw.

It looks like he was right, after Rashford issued his own update on his fitness situation this week. Responding to a supporter on Instagram who asked if he was ‘okay’, Rashford confirmed he hasn’t sustained a long-term injury. “I will be okay,” Rashford replied to the comment.

Ten Hag is typically coy on injury updates given the private nature of the medical information, while he has often reiterated that it takes roughly 24 hours before an accurate diagnosis can be made.

It means we could get an official update from the club during the week and he will almost certainly be quizzed on the latest team news in his next press conference on Friday.

United are back in action when they travel to face Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday night.
