Manchester United forward, Marcus Rashford believes the Red devils are back to their strength after helping his side record a record breaking victory against Chelsea st Old Trafford.
The England striker scored a brace for United before coming off pitch for Mason Greenwood in the 86th minute.
And speaking after the match, he said; “It was a good start, in the first half we could have been a bit sharper but it is to be expected in the first game. In the second half we looked sharper and the fitness work we have been doing over the summer pulled us through.”
On playing on the left of central striker Anthony Martial today: “It gives us fluidity, Anthony can play both positions, it gives us more options. Defensively it can be tough but we will get better.
“Whether I’m there or more central, is the same really, just more defensive duties on the left. But as time goes on we will get better at it. It’s looking good but we’ve still got a lot to work on.”
Speaking about his confidently to convert the penalty for United’s first goal he said “It’s about waiting for the keeper but if he doesn’t give you much then you go with which side you’re confident with. The keeper stood tall so it was hard. I look at him and wait to see if he can give me some movement when I’m running up and then decide which side I’m going.
On United’s style of play: “We’re playing to our strengths, we’ve had players to be good on counter attack, some times decision-making has let us down, but a lot of us are young players so need to keep working on that.”
