After making a real impact as a half-time substitute against Crystal Palace, the England international appears to be finding his top form again at a key stage of the season.
Marcus Rashford has not started a game since last year December, but scored twice inside the first 25 minutes to set his side up for an eventual 2-1 win over arch-rivals Liverpool. The 20-year-old striker was subsequently crowned Man of the Match by United fans on Twitter, after receiving a massive 81 per cent of the votes.
The 20 year old feels he is not improving faster enough on the pitch during matches, but he learns the most during his training at the Aon Training Complex.
“Right now I’m probably not learning the most on the pitch [in matches],” Marcus says. “In training is where I’m doing most of my learning but you have to take it into the game and against Liverpool it worked.
“There’s a lot of things I’m learning. The all-round game is starting to become more clear. Things the manager wants are becoming more clear to me. The more that happens, the easier the results come on the pitch.”
He clearly understands that Manchester United is a big club with a lot of big players, there can only be 11 players on the pitch, and he wont be able to play every game all the time.
“It’s a big club with big players and for players like Marcus it’s going to be tough to start every game but once you are on the pitch you have got to make an impact and maybe in the next game you will be starting. But you’ve got to always work hard and he does.
Rashford will be hoping to be picked against Sevilla so he can continue his goal scoring form. Manchester United face Sevilla at Old Trafford, having secured a nil – nil draw away at Sevilla
