Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford was subbed off in the 2-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion as he seemed to have picked up an injury but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cleared the air nothing that it was a tactical decision.

Matteo Darmian came on for Rashford in the 94th minute to nullify the growing Brighton pressure who threatened to notch in an equalizer late on.

In a post-match press conference after the Brighton win, Solskjaer revealed why he took off Rashford, “He was tired towards the end because his work-rate is unbelievable. We also knew they were going to get some crosses and set pieces so I put Matteo [Darmian] on as an extra defender just to see the game out.”
