Manchester United has been given a significant injury boost ahead of the Manchester Derby during the international break.
Manchester United are hopeful that Marcus Rashford will be fit to play rival Manchester City in their first game following the international break, according to ESPN.
Rashford has been in terrific form for Manchester United this season, frequently keeping Cristiano Ronaldo out of the starting lineup while playing in a center-forward role.
After a frustrating few years at the club, the England international is beginning to reclaim his form.
Rashford’s quickness on the counter-attack might be an effective way of achieving a result against Manchester City, a team that will most certainly dominate the ball versus United.
In the absence of Rashford, Ronaldo is set to be the starting striker. Although a good goal scorer, he is significantly less efficient when his team does not have the ball and dominates possession.
Ronaldo has lost a lot of speed owing to his age, thus Rashford is by far the better option for a game like this during counter-attacks and when United is pressing the opponent’s defense.
