It is unclear why Rashford was benched, however, the England international was widely criticized for his anonymous display during Man United’s defeat at Newcastle last weekend.

Ten Hag made four changes from Man United’s last outing, with Victor Lindelof, Sofyan Amrabat, Antony and Rasmus Hojlund replacing Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Kobbie Mainoo, Anthony Martial and Rashford.

Manchester United XI: Onana, Dalot, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Amrabat, McTominay, Fernandes, Antony, Garnacho, Hojlund

Substitutes: Boyindir, Martial, Rashford, Reguilon, Pellistri, Wan-Bissaka, Van de Beek, Evans, Mainoo

talkSPORT understands Ten Hag feels he and Rashford have a good relationship.

It’s been a miserable season so far for Rashford, who has scored just two goals in 18 appearances in all competitions.

The season has been marked by numerous setbacks for Ten Hag’s men, who have lost six of their 14 league matches.

Ahead of the Chelsea clash, the club barred four journalists from Ten Hag’s press conference on Tuesday, amid a report by numerous media outlets suggesting the Dutchman had “lost more than 50 per cent of the dressing room”.

Following bans on Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol, Manchester Evening News’ Samuel Luckhurst, Daily Mirror’s David McDonnell and ESPN’s Rob Dawson, Man United said in a statement: “We are today taking action against a number of press organizations.

“Not to publish stories we don’t like, but to do so without contacting us first and giving us the opportunity to comment, question or contextualize.”
