Two Players That Could Be Benched For Rashford As His Return Draws Near

Manchester United will be aiming to continue their good run of form on Wednesday night, as they tackle West Ham United in the English Carabao Cup. The Manchester United clinic team released good news, as some of their star players returned to training. English talisman, Marcus Rashford is confirmed fit and ready to face West Ham United in today's Carabao Cup clash at Old Trafford.

Manchester United fans know the impact of Marcus Rashford, as he was one of Manchester United's star men last season in all competitions. It was confirmed that Marcus Rashford has been injured from last season, but refused to visit the medical centre. Marcus Rashford returning back to Manchester United training would surely mount pressure on some players like Jadon Sancho, Jesse Lingard and Mason Greenwood.

Here I will be shortlisting just two players who could be benched as Rashford return draws near;

1. Jadon Sancho:

The English winger is yet to score or register an assist in all competitions. Jadon Sancho has not really impacted in most of the games he has played this season. Jadon Sancho needs to be given time before he adapts to the style of play in the English Premier League. The youngster is known for his pace and ability to dribble past defenders, which he is yet to showcase in the league. Fans will be expecting him to improve so as to maintain his place in Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's starting eleven.

2. Jesse Lingard:

Jesse Lingard has sparkled to life on his return to Manchester United, after spending most of last season on loan at West Ham United. Jesse Lingard was Manchester United's hero last week, as he scored the winning goal in their clash against West Ham United. Jesse Lingard will be hoping he gets the nod in Manchester United's next Premier League match on Saturday against Aston Villa. Fans would love to see his combination with Cristiano Ronaldo and will also be hoping Lingard continues his good run of form. 

Who do you think will be benched as Marcus Rashford return draws closer?
