Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that his decision to bring Marcus Rashford on during his side’s clash with Wolves in the FA Cup on Wednesday night ‘backfired’ after the striker came off injured with a back injury. United face Liverpool on Sunday in the Premier League but Rashford is now a doubt for the game.

ashford didn’t start the game with Wolves, but came on midway through the second half, before crumbling under a challenge from the away side’s Matt Doherty.

Rashford hobbled around after getting to his feet before signalling to be hauled off in favour of midfielder Jesse Lingard.

The 22-year-old clutched his back as he trudged down the Old Trafford sidelines and down the tunnel.

After the game, Solskjaer spoke of his decision to bring Rashford on, just days away from an important game against Liverpool.

"Yes it backfired. You got to take them once in a while,” the Norwegian admitted.

“He'll be tested in the next few days - we have to see for Sunday. He couldn't run.

“He struggled a little bit with his back and got another knock. It didn't help."

But Solskjaer was happy that his side finally managed to overcome Wolves, who the Red Devils had failed to beat since they were promoted to the Premier League two years ago.

"Hopefully Marcus Rashford isn't too bad. Was a shame he couldn't be on the pitch for more minutes."

But Solskjaer explained that the note was mostly to do with his side veering out of shape throughout the clash.

"A couple of times we went out of shape - we adjusted it for five/10 minutes before half-time,” he said.

"Dan [James] had three or four great opportunities one-on-one with the keeper. Fair play to our boys we created them but we didn't take them."

United take on fierce rivals Liverpool on Sunday evening at Anfield, and will be hoping to end the Reds’ year-long unbeaten league run.
