Erik ten Hag believes Marcus Rashford is in unstoppable form for Manchester United after his fifth goal in as many games. The 25-year-old created two goals and scored a penalty in United’s FA Cup third round win over Everton to take his tally for the season to 16 club and international goals. Rashford has scored in all five of United’s matches since the World Cup and he was named the club’s player of the month for December.

For 90 minutes he was a threat for the Everton defenders. “As a striker, you measure goals and assist. Definitely today he had two assists and one goal, so it’s great and he has fantastic skills. When he has that mental stability he keeps going but that demands a lot from him and also us as a team, the organisation. Make sure we have the right environment and the right culture. When he keeps focus like this I’m sure he keeps this process going.” Both of Rashford’s assists came through crosses with his weaker left foot and the MEN revealed in September Ten Hag had been presiding over wrong-footed training sessions with United players. “That’s one part and I can see some technical capabilities with the players when we work with them,” Ten Hag added. “Although we don’t have so much time but he can work on his weaker foot, he can work on his heading but I think a lot of other skills. “It’s very good, it’s more about bringing him in the right position – he has to do it – but make sure as a team we create spaces so he’s coming as a strength. Marcus is doing really well but also is the team to get the right shape so he can bring his strengths in and then he’s unstoppable with his speed, with his dribbles, with his directness. “We have good staff and many staff members contributing to performances from the team, individuals, and we do a lot with individuals but we also do a lot with combinations, lines in the team. “But the most important the way of playing. The most important is the players cooperate and challenge each other and bring each other in the best positions. There is a lot of work in it but the most important is Marcus himself.” READ MORE: United player ratings vs Everton Shaw is an example of what Ten Hag wants from his players Ten Hag’s full-time exchange with De Gea shows United have got what they need De Gea explains why Ten Hag was ‘a bit angry’ All the United news and views Story SavedYou can find this story in  My Bookmarks.Or by navigating to the user icon in the top right.
