Rashford shines bright again after a dry spell at Man Utd

    Marcus Rashford is keen to see Manchester United get back in shape after coming back to beat Brentford.

    The England international scored the only goal of the game to seal the victory at Old Trafford on Wednesday, ending a three-game streak without a Premier League win.

    United’s problems in the league began after winning the EFL Cup, a humiliating 7-0 defeat to Liverpool and a loss to Newcastle United on either side of a goalless draw against Southampton.

    Eric ten Hag’s side have had the best record in cup competitions, advancing in both the FA Cup and the Europa League, but a drop in form in the Premier League has raised concerns in their pursuit of a top-four finish.

    With one hurdle now cleared, Rashford is looking to pick up the pace and finish the season at a high level.

    “We’re in that period of the season where every game counts and every game counts, so we’re happy to win and hopefully we can get back to where we were a few weeks ago,” he told BBC Sport.

    “It is important to always win the next game. It’s clear to everyone that we’re not going to be at our best every week, but there’s never a time to lower our standards and we must keep trying to push each other every week.

    “We were a little more patient with the ball; we waited for the right conditions to press, not to press every ball. We were calm and continued to communicate to try to stop the supply of them to the front line people.”

    United’s win puts them back above Tottenham and lifts them up to fourth place with a three-point lead and a game in hand over the north London side, with Rashford focused on securing Champions League football next season.

    “That’s our goal – we want to score as many points as possible and we will try to win every game,” he added. “We just have to keep playing well and giving it our all, keep recovering well and moving on to the next game.”
