Struggling Forward Ruled Out Due to Injury Amidst Team’s Desperate Quest for Victory
In a crucial Premier League clash against Fulham, Manchester United faces the daunting challenge of securing a win without the services of Marcus Rashford, who has been omitted from the squad due to injury. The decision comes at a critical juncture for the Red Devils, who are eager to bounce back from a series of disappointing defeats.
United, having lost five of their ten Premier League encounters, is under mounting pressure following a disheartening 3-0 defeat to cross-city rivals Manchester City, followed by another 3-0 loss to Newcastle in the Carabao Cup. The team’s lackluster performances resulted in audible boos from fans on Wednesday.
The absence of Rashford, confirmed by Manchester Evening News journalist Sam Luckhurst, adds to the challenges faced by the struggling team. Luckhurst explained on X: “Rashford out for #mufc due to a ‘heavy knock to leg in training’. Failed fitness test this morning.”
Rashford, who has netted only one goal in 14 games for United this season, finds himself in a slump of form. The forward has also come under scrutiny this week for celebrating his birthday with a party, mere hours after United’s 3-0 defeat to City at Old Trafford.
As United seeks redemption against Fulham, the spotlight intensifies on the team’s ability to secure a much-needed victory without one of their key players. The match will serve as a crucial test for United’s resilience and determination to reverse their recent setbacks.
