Marcus Rashford 'facing Man Utd axe' for Brentford clash as Erik ten Hag makes major admission

Marcus Rashford 'facing Man Utd axe' for Brentford clash as Erik ten Hag makes major admission

Rashford could be out of the side.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag could drop Marcus Rashford for his side's clash against Brentford, according to reports.

The Dutchman is reportedly planning to make big changes after seeing his side lose all three of their most recent games.

A 4-3 defeat at Bayern Munich in the Champions League was followed by a surprise 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace at home.

And in their return to European action on Tuesday, United were downed 3-2 by Galatasaray at Old Trafford, with Casemiro being shown a red card following a mistake from goalkeeper Andre Onana.

Rasmus Hojlund was one of the few to emerge from the Galatasaray defeat with credit, as the Dane scored a well-taken brace.

But there has been concern over the form of Rashford, who has combined well with Hojlund from the left side of attack but hasn't scored in his last seven games for club and country.

And The Sun claim that Ten Hag is considering dropping one of his key players from last season, with Alejandro Garnacho and Anthony Martial the two candidates to replace him.

Rashford scored 17 goals in the Premier League last season, but has just one to his name this term - a strike in the 3-1 defeat at Arsenal in September.

Speaking about the England international in his pre-match press conference, Ten Hag explained: "It's normal that you are not always right in the same levels.

"Everyone knows his qualities. We've seen he is getting in good positions. He is struggling but it will pass.

"Everyone at United backs him, the whole team supports him and believes in him. I am sure with that it [lack of goals] will change.

"Strikers, when they don't score for a moment, they need one goal, then they step over. It will come. The momentum will come and he will be on fire."
