A frustrated Marcus Rashford walks towards the tunnel, holding his back which has been an issue for some time. Such a willing player, he’s been playing through discomfort. He needs a rest. #mufc

Rashford going off and straight down the tunnel. Big blow for United if he’s not fit to face Liverpool on Sunday. Precisely why Solskjaer didn’t want to start him #MUNWOL

Never want to feel like I’ve let my teammates, the club and most importantly the fans down so did my very best to carry on tonight and was gutted to come off.

Top work from the lads to get into the next round 👊🏿
