Marcus Rashford makes honest admission about Man Utd form after goal vs Everton

Marcus Rashford admitted that he believes his current run of form in front of goal is arguably the best he has experienced in his career so far after scoring again in Manchester United’s 3-1 win over Everton in the third round of the FA Cup at Old Trafford on Friday evening. After playing key roles in United’s opening two goals of the evening, Rashford dispatched a penalty deep into second-half stoppage time to put the gloss on the victory, sealing the Reds’ place in the draw for the next round. It marked his fifth goal in as many games, meaning he has scored in each of United’s five fixtures since the campaign resumed after the World Cup. He was a constant threat throughout the encounter, providing the assist for Antony’s early opener and then a low cross that was turned into the Everton net by defender Conor Coady at the start of the second half. He terrorised Toffees right-back Seamus Coleman, too, regularly sending him one way and then another.

And with his goalscoring exploits showing no signs of slowing down, Rashford is enjoying every second. “Yes, goalscoring form, this is probably up there with the best that I’ve been,” Rashford told ITV Sport. “I feel good on the pitch, I’m getting in positions and areas to score goals in. “If they [my teammates] keep creating chances, I feel, at the minute, I’ll keep scoring.” Victory over Everton strengthened United’s hopes of ending their trophy drought this season. The club is still competing in the Carabao Cup and Europa League, as well as the FA Cup, of course, meaning they are in a strong position heading into the second half of the campaign. “That is the aim [to win a trophy], that is why we do what we do and why we work so hard,” added Rashford. “We want to be in finals, we want to be in the biggest games and, ultimately, we want to win silverware and trophies, so, hopefully, this season we get the opportunity to do that.” READ NEXT: All the latest United news, views and transfer updates Erik ten Hag explains why Luke Shaw started at centre-back vs Everton Why Roy Keane has concerns about United’s current progress Jack Butland explains why he has joined United on loan United issue Donny van de Beek injury update Story SavedYou can find this story in  My Bookmarks.Or by navigating to the user icon in the top right.
