Marcus Rashford sidelined for several matches in blow for Man Utd and Erik ten Hag

Marcus Rashford sidelined for several matches in blow for Man Utd and Erik ten Hag

Rashford will miss a number of games.

Manchester United have confirmed that Marcus Rashford will miss Thursday's Europa League quarter-final tie against Sevilla through injury - but there is positive news for the England forward.

Rashford limped off during his side's 2-0 win over Everton on Saturday, with fears that he had suffered a suspected thigh problem.

Speaking after the match, manager Erik ten Hag confirmed the problem did 'not look well', and attention quickly turned to whether the 25-year-old would miss a significant part of United's run-in.

As well as their Europa League status, United also remain in the FA Cup, and are battling to finish inside the top four places of the Premier League.

Now, the club have issued a timely update on the injury suffered by Rashford ahead of their clash against Sevilla - and the forward will have mixed feelings.

Man Utd issue Rashford update

As well as being ruled out of Thursday's fixture, United have revealed that Rashford is likely to be unavailable for several games following initial assessments of the injury.

However, in more positive news, the 25-year-old is expected to return for the run-in and the final weeks of the season.

In the forward's absence, Anthony Martial could likely step up to play a more important role under Ten Hag after recovering from injury.

The France international scored United's second goal in their win over Everton after coming on as a substitute, and will hope for a prolonged spell in the team after suffering a series of injury problems this term.

And speaking ahead of the game, Ten Hag stated that, as well as Martial, United have players that are capable of scoring goals with Rashford not available.

He said: "I think we have players like Bruno [Fernandes], like Jadon Sancho, like Anthony Martial, like Scott McTominay, like Antony.

"We have enough players with the capability to score goals, definitely."
