๐Ÿค” What to do with Rashfordโ“ KEEP or SELL ?
ย 
๐ŸŽ™๏ธ The Club have now said heโ€™ll โ€œโ€ฆbe out for a few games but is expected to be back for the season run-in.โ€
ย 
๐Ÿค” FPL managers will be wondering what time frame that is likely to be exactlyโ€ผ๏ธ
ย 
๐Ÿฉผ With adductor / groin injuries itโ€™s likely to be at least 2 weeks IMO and possibly 3.
ย 
๐Ÿ—“๏ธ He got the injury on 8th April so letโ€™s assume 3 weeks which would mean a return on 29th April.ย  As a point of reference, ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ดHaaland was out for c.18 days with a similar sounding injury.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‘† The first match of Man Unitedโ€™s DGW34 takes place on Sunday 30th Aprilโ€ฆthey face Villa (H) on 30th April and Brighton (a) on Thursday 4th May.ย  Iโ€™d be very surprised if heโ€™s not back for at least the Brighton game and my best guess is that heโ€™ll probably be back for the Villa (H) game too.ย 
ย 
ย 
๐Ÿง  Between now and DGW34 Man United actually have 5๏ธโƒฃ other matchesโ€ฆbut only 2๏ธโƒฃ of these are league games which is helpful ๐Ÿ‘
ย 
๐Ÿ—“๏ธ The โ€œfew gamesโ€ Rashford could miss could be: Sevilla (H) + GW31 Forest (a) + Sevilla (a) + Brighton in the FA Cup semi final + GW33 v Spurs (a).
ย 
๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ So what do you do with himโ“โ€ฆ
ย 
๐ŸŸ Those planning on playing a Free Hit Chip in BGW32 can very reasonably decide just to bench ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟRashford in GW31 and then reassess in 2๏ธโƒฃ weeks time if they so wish. He wouldnโ€™t be in the FH32 team anyway given Man United blank. The Brighton ๐Ÿ†FA Cup match will also give a clean indication as to whether heโ€™s due back imminently at that point. Likewise with the GW33 fixture v Spurs (a).ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‘† If youโ€™re 5th midfielder is a good player like a ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟSolly March type then keeping ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟRashford is certainly an option. Itโ€™s less easy to keep him if your midfield is already a bit ropey. You may also take the view that with just 8 GWs left you want to optimise every key spot in your squad. Thatโ€™s fair enough ๐Ÿ‘.
ย 
๐Ÿ”€ If youโ€™re not on a FH32 then selling ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟRashford is a reasonable decision and particularly if your 5th midfielder isnโ€™t great. There are fairly obvious transfer targets ๐ŸŽฏin the form of ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟGrealish, ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ทMartinelli and ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ฟMahrez for example. Do be aware though that Man City do NOT play in BGW32 eitherโ€ผ๏ธ
ย 
๐Ÿฆ‰ We have just 8๏ธโƒฃ free transfers left this season now. Ideally you wouldnโ€™t want to be using 2๏ธโƒฃ of them on selling and then bringing back Rashfordโ€ผ๏ธ
ย 
๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ With 2๏ธโƒฃ x DGW still left for Man United this season itโ€™s very likely that youโ€™ll want him for that period DGW34-38.ย ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ˜ด But you also donโ€™t want to be sleeping on an injured ๐Ÿฉผ midfield asset when there are so many great options out there.
ย 
๐Ÿ˜ Remember that ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟRashfordโ€™s as yet unconfirmed DGW37 is almost certain to be Bournemouth (a) and Chelsea (H). Theyโ€™ve also still got the likes of GW35 West Ham (a), GW36 Wolves (H) and GW38 Fulham (H) left to play on top of the DGW34 and DGW37 doublesโ€ฆtheyโ€™re bloody good fixturesโ€ผ๏ธ
ย 
๐Ÿ’™ Ultimately you must take a view and make your own choiceโ€ฆI hope this info helps a bit though ๐Ÿ‘.
