• Marcus Rashford suffered a shoulder injury Wednesday
  • He scored Man Utd's goal in 1-3 loss against PS
  • Man Utd will next take on West Ham Saturday in the Premier League

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that Marcus Rashford had suffered a shoulder injury during Red Devils’ 1-3 loss to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in the Champions League Wednesday.

Solskjaer, in a post-match interview, said that Rashford's injury will need medical attention and they are not sure whether the 23-year-old playmaker will be fit for their upcoming Premier League clash with West Ham.

“It’s just niggling him, that shoulder injury. Let’s see how quickly he can recover. Let’s hope he can be ready for the West Ham game. But we don’t know,” Solskjaer told BT Sport after the final whistle, as reported by Manchester United’s official website.

Rashford scored the equalizer for Manchester United with a 32nd-minute strike after Neymar had netted the opening goal of the match Wednesday. The English forward was forced off the field and replaced by Paul Pogba with 15 minutes left in the game at Old Trafford. At the half-time break, the score was 1-1. Even though the hosts started the next half with a dominant performance, Marquinhos put PSG back into the lead, and with Rashford’s exit shortly afterward, Solskajer’s side never recovered as Neymar made it 1-3 in extra time.

Meanwhile, former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen blamed Solskajer and midfielder Fred, who was booked twice in the game before being sent off, for the Old Trafford side’s loss to PSG.

“Mistakes all around really. It [the clash with Paredes] was a red card. You’re a grown man, you don’t need to do a petulant thing like that to put your team at risk. If I was a manager, and one of my players did that, he would never play for me again. It’s pathetic. Overall you have to blame Fred but also Solskjaer. The manager has to protect him and the team in that situation so they’re both to blame,” Own said in an interview after the game.

Manchester United are set to travel to London to take on West Ham, who are placed fifth in the 2020-21 Premier League table. With five wins, three losses, and a draw, Solskjaer’s team is placed ninth in the table. Their latest league win came against Southampton, where a goal from Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani’s brace rescued them after they had conceded two early goals.
