Rashford came off shortly after the hour mark after a collision left him on the deck. As he left the field, the 26-year-old seemed to be in some pain as Chelsea&aposs Cole Palmer came on for his senior international debut.
Southgate&aposs men went on to win 2-0 thanks to an Enrico Pepe own goal and a Harry Kane effort. However, United fans watching on waited with bated breath for news of an update on their forward.
Southgate seemed confident Rashford was not too severely injured. He told reporters in his post-match press conference: “I think he [Rashford] is probably okay.
“We just thought given the nature of the collision it was a chance to get Cole into the game. I havent assessed too much but I think he was okay when he came off.”
This news will be music to the ears of Erik ten Hag who will be hoping his injury list does not get any longer during the international break. Should Rashford miss the Reds&apos first game back against Everton next weekend, options to replace him are limited.
Antony would be the favourite to come in on the right-hand side with Alejandro Garnacho operating on the left flank as he did in the victory over Luton Town. Facundo Pellistri could also be in contention to join the starting XI.
