Manchester United have been dealt a hammer injury blow to Marcus Rashford.
Rashford missed the clash with Liverpool on Sunday after limping off during the midweek win over Wolves .
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed he was set for a spell on the sidelines and it emerged during the clash that he had suffered a double stress fracture in his back.
Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler confirmed the new live on air, suggesting Rashford would be sidelined for two to three months.
Speaking after the game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed Rashford faced a spell on the sidelines.
Confirming the news of Rashford’s serious setback, Solskjaer said: “He has suffered a bad injury.
“It is a stress fracture that happened against Wolves. He will be out for a while for us.
“He won’t be back until after the mid-season break. Usually a stress fracture is six weeks to heel and then he will need to recover after that.”
Rashford picked up a knock in the win over Norwich last week and started on the bench against Wolves.
He was later introduced by Solskjaer but was forced off 16 minutes later, with the United boss admitting the gamble had not paid off.
