Manchester United missing key player for Liverpool clash

Marcus Rashford news

No Rashford for Liverpool clash

Manchester United are set to be without Marcus Rashford for the upcoming Premier League clash against Liverpool at Anfield.

The England international sustained a knock to his knee and back in the midweek Cup clash against Wolves and he has not been able to recover from the setback for the Reds game.

According to ESPN, the United graduate won't be involved against the Premier League leaders tonight due to the concern and as a result, he has been left out of the travelling squad.

In the absence of Rashford, United are likely to field Daniel James on the left side of the attack but it remains to be seen whether the Welshman can step up with his performances after struggling for form in recent weeks.

Rashford's tally of 19 goals sees him as the top-scorer for the Red Devils this season and they will certainly miss his services, given he has been involved in three of United's previous four goals scored against the Reds.
