Sancho struggles at Man United tipped to worsen after Twitter reveal - pundit
Jadon Sancho will find his game time at Man United even more limited when Marcus Rashford returns to full fitness.
That is the view of former England number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the selection dilemma soon to face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Sancho has struggled since arriving to Old Trafford in a £73million deal from Borussia Dortmund in July.
He has failed to register a goal or an assist in his seven appearances across all competitions and was an unused substitute in Saturday’s 1-0 loss to Villa.
Meanwhile, his teammate Marcus Rashford revealed on Twitter that he is set to get the green light to return to contact training on Friday.
The England international has not featured for United so far this season following an operation on a long-term shoulder injury.

Robinson fears Rashford’s return could spell bad news for Sancho.
“Yes, Sancho has had a very slow start but everyone knows what a brilliant player he is,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.
“Man United have got a huge squad and with Rashford coming back Solskjaer will have the opportunity to change things up.
“When you play for a club like United if you are not performing, you don’t play. It is simple. I think that is something Sancho will realise in the next few weeks. He has been poor since he has come in.
“I’m sure he will soon regain the form he showed at Dortmund in time. Moving to Manchester United is a huge challenge. It is completely different to any other experience. He needs to learn to deal with the pressure.”
