Marcus Rashford’s Return Will Boost Manchester United And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Hugely
With Marcus Rashford nearing his return after several months out recovering from a shoulder injury, Manchester United fans will be beaming with excitement to see one of their own return to the team.
Rashford took matters into his own hands at times last season with his ability to find the back of the net and was able to win games single-handedly. A record of 22 goal contributions (11 goals, 11 assists) in 37 Premier League
Ever since breaking onto the scene five years’ ago, Rashford has always been brimming with potential, but rarely able to find the consistency in his output. Mason Greenwood, on the other hand, has quickly backed up his dazzling performances with raw numbers during important games.
Rashford, however, has been a stalwart in Manchester United’s front three and will continue to be so, even with the arrival of Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo. With his return from injury, there is a lot of promise in the air over what he can personally achieve as well as collectively with the Red Devils.
Rashford will look to improve on those numbers in all competitions this season as soon as he is given the green light to do so. It is expected that he will be back in contention for minutes on the pitch after the October international break, which is a fair few weeks ahead of what was initially thought.
The England international’s dynamism, athleticism and drastically-improved playmaking ability causes excitement among Manchester United fans as what to expect for his return alongside Ronaldo, Greenwood, Sancho and Edinson Cavani.
It might take Rashford a number of fixtures to regain his full match fitness and sharpness, but with his increase in muscle mass and overall size, there is no doubt that the electric winger will cause problems to all defences.
Rashford will be a welcomed addition to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side moving forward, who now has an array of world class talent among his squad. There should be no excuses in not finding routes past all types of defences who pose different problems to the Red Devils.
The Englishman has shown his ability to play down the centre, but it is fair to say that he is more accomplished and threatening on the left wing, cutting inside when the opportunity presents itself and testing the goalkeeper. It is important that the front three rotate at times, but Rashford can be devastating when given the ball at his feet to run at defenders and in behind.
This season should be an exciting one for the Red Devils fans with the arrival of Ronaldo, but with Rashford’s return coming in a matter of weeks, Manchester United should be in a position to start shifting the gears and really posing problems on their nearest rivals in the Premier League.
