The England striker finished clinically from Paul Pogba's pass to earn United an eighth win in nine league games under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Their winning run had been halted by Burnley on Tuesday, when the Red Devils fought back from 2-0 down to claim a dramatic 2-2 draw, but the three points rarely looked in much doubt after Rashford's 10th top-flight goal of the season. 1 987826 Rashford somehow headed over from barely two yards out within the first five minutes, but he soon made amends, controlling Pogba's lofted pass expertly and drilling beyond Kasper Schmeichel. United eased off after taking the lead and invited some Leicester pressure, although a wayward header from Jonny Evans and a dipping Pereira strike were the best openings they could muster before the break. David de Gea was given a tougher test on the hour mark, reacting well to stop Jamie Vardy's half-volley from crossing the line after he spilled the initial attempt, and Solskjaer promptly introduced … [Read more...] about Leicester City 0 Manchester United 1: Rashford drags Solskjaer’s men back to winning ways
It was Palace's first win at Old Trafford since 1989 but to make things worse, United suffered two other setbacks as well with injuries to Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial. Martial although is reported to be sidelined only for one week but the English left-back will have to wait at least five weeks before returning into the pitch. This now leaves Ashley Young as the only real solution for the left-back spot. United although could put options like Rojo and Darmian in the spot but the rumour is that both are surplus to requirements and would be sold. Diogo Dalot, another full-back, could have provided Solskjaer with a cover on the left-hand side, but he is out until after the international break due to injury. At this moment, United are out of options in the left defensive track but this could see them, calling in academy starlet Brandon Williams into the scene. This, however, won't be the first time the local lad gets a call-up into the senior side. When United were travelling to Paris … [Read more...] about The Manchester United academy lad who could step in for injured Luke Shaw
The Red Devils have lost once, drawn twice since then and will now be back in action again this weekend, competing against a rejuvenated Leicester side who are yet to lose a game. United now will have to be precise on the pitch, but Solskjaer has already suffered from a huge blow in the build-up to the game. Almost seven players have departed under Solskjaer which have left United with a notably thin squad. Eric Bailly who has had surgery is an expected exclusion next week but there could be far more players missing with as many as five absentees from the side. Here, we round up the latest injury concerns for the Red Devils: 1) Luke Shaw The English player had been a prominent figure under Solskjaer before suffering a thigh injury during their match against Southampton last week. Latest scans reveal that he will miss around five weeks meaning he could miss the Premier League game against Leicester City, UEFA Europa League group stage game against FC Astana, as well as the trip to West … [Read more...] about Five major injury concerns for Manchester United ahead of their match against Leicester
Left-back Shaw has been on the fringes for much of his time at Old Trafford, where he moved from Southampton in 2014, with manager Jose Mourinho singling him out for criticism on a number of occasions.But the impressive form in the 2018-19 campaign has earned the 23-year-old a recall to the England set-up and a new deal at United. Shaw started only eight Premier League games last term but has already played the full 90 minutes in seven top-flight matches this season for United, who are eighth in the table.
