Man Utd were successful in their mission to secure a win against Benfica on Wednesday night, and the fans in the Transfer Tavern were pretty happy. Though the scoreline wasn’t quite what they were hoping for, the three points are all that really matter – and the result puts the Red Devils in a very commanding position in their group.
However, despite the successful nature of the tie for Man Utd, it wasn’t without negative consequences. Jose Mourinho, unfortunately, revealed after the game that Marcus Rashford suffered an injury during the tie, with the English said to have felt something in his knee. This was confirmed by Simon Stone of the BBC on Twitter.

Rashford was, of course, the matchwinner for the Red Devils, as he so often has been this season. The Englishman has really come of age under Jose Mourinho, and he’s quickly becoming a fan favourite in the Transfer Tavern.
We’re yet to receive word on the severity of the blow, and so it remains to be seen how long he will be out for, if for any time at all, leaving the fans in the pub sweating.
It’s a similar tale on Reddit, with the Man Utd fans over on the Red Devils page admitting their concern over the blow, with many hopeful of an immediate recovery.
