According to the Mirorr, Rashford’s teammate Fernandes was nearby and checked on his teammate as onlookers watched on.

Police were called to the scene and breathalysed both drivers as a routine measure and no further action was taken.

Rashford posted on Instagram today (Sunday 24 September) to say he is "alright" and "thanks for the messages", while celebrating United’s 1-0 win over Burnley.

He will hope to be involved in United’s match against Crystal Palace on Tuesday (26 September) which will kick off at 8pm.

Speaking to BBC sport after his team’s triump on Saturday, Ten Hag told BBC Sport: “It was clear. Of course we needed that win. We had a tough run of games against good opponents. It wasn’t necessary to lose those games. Today was must-win.

“The team spirit and how they fight together [was impressive]. It was a team attacking with 11 and defending with 11. They supported each other. A lot has been against us, like injuries and decisions. Like tonight.”
