Ten Hag Hails Rashford After Starring Role Against Everton


Manchester United manager,  Erik Ten Hag has showered encomiums on in-form Marcus Rashford following his match-winning performance in the 3-1 win over Everton.

Rashford was in an impressive form to lead Manchester into the fourth round of the competition, playing a role in all the goals.

He assisted the first goal for Antony and played a part in the second goal when Conor Coady diverted into his own net.

The 25-year-old scored a penalty to complete the win in the closing moments of the game.

Ten Hag has reserved special praise for his star after scoring in his fifth consecutive game for the first time in his career.

“From the first minute, Marcus showed confidence and belief,” Ten Hag said.

“For 90 minutes he was a threat for the Everton defenders… As a striker, you measure goals and assists – today he had two assists and one goal, so it’s a great.

“He can work on his weaker foot, on his heading, but on other skills he is very good. It is more about bringing him in the right position and that as a team we create the right spaces for him, so that he can bring his strengths.

“Then he is unstoppable with his speed, his dribbles, his directness… He has fantastic skills and when he has mental stability he can keep going.”

Rashford has now scored 13 goals in all competitions for Manchester United this season.

He will be hoping to add to his tally when Manchester United returns to Premier League duty against Man City next Saturday.
