Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said top goal scorer Marcus Rashford is facing a period on the sidelines due to a back injury.
United travel to Anfield to face league leaders Liverpool on Sunday, with Rashford having been declared a doubt in the build-up to the match. However, speaking before kick-off, Solskjaer said Rashford would miss the clash with Liverpool as he would be out “for weeks.”
“I wouldn’t expect him to be back in the next few weeks,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “We have a midseason break and I’m not sure you are going to see him before then, no.
“He’s [Rashford] got a couple of knocks, jolts against Wolves. He has aggravated his back, where he has had trouble before.
“Give him time to recover and rest before we put him back on the pitch. He’s always recovered quickly before so let’s hope he does that again.”
United are the only side to take points off Liverpool the Premier League this season, having picked up a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
However, they come into this match in fifth place — five behind fourth-place Chelsea — and 27 points behind Liverpool.
