See reasons why Solskjaer subbed off Rashford against Brighton

0

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.

Rashford scored the match winner in the first half and was booked in the 93rd minute for a rash tackle on Martin Montoya. The England international has now scored four goals in his last four league appearances.

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.”
