Man Utd’s Marcus Rashford carrying possible bone injury after pictured with kit

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford is carrying a possible bone injury after pictures emerged of the striker carrying a fracture-healing kit – sparking fears over his involvement against Liverpool .

The England international has been in fine form for the Red Devils in recent times and is in the midst of his best ever goalscoring campaign.

The 22-year-old has netted 19 times in all competitions, including four in his last four Premier League appearances.

His latest haul came against Norwich when he scored twice in a 4-0 victory, one from the penalty spot and another from a Juan Mata cross on his 200th game for United.

But the striker was taken off on 59 minutes, which struck some fans as odd considering he was chasing a hat-trick.

And pictures have now emerged of the Englishman carrying a kit designed to heal bone fractures.

It appears to be a Melmak Ultrasound Bone Healing Device, described to be used "in the treatment of delayed or non-union fractures and the acceleration of fresh fracture healing".

An injury to Rashford would come as a major blow to the player and United.

The forward has picked up form at an integral part of the season with the Red Devils chasing down fourth-placed Chelsea in the Premier League.

United are five points behind the Blues and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted that Rashford could be suffering from an injury after the win over Norwich.

The Norwegian said: "Fantastic effort by Marcus getting to 200 games so quickly.

"He got through most of the game, he is struggling a little bit so we took him off.

"He kept his cool. Very pleased with Marcus."

Rashford also got involved when he tweeted that he came off as 'a precaution' but with an upcoming match against Liverpool his fitness could not be more important.

The Reds have been in tremendous form this season and have a total of 61 points out of 63.

Though those dropped points came against United in their last encounter in October when Adam Lallana rescued a late draw for Jurgen Klopp's men.
