No details. Our rules. Now focus on the game. Alejandro Garnacho is coming in.”Rashford embraced Ten Hag after the match and admitted his mistake, smiling when asked why he had been left out.”I was a little bit late for a meeting,” he said. “I overslept a bit. It can happen.”Disappointed not to play but I understand the decision. I’m happy we managed to win the game. I think we can draw a line under it and move on.”The victory, United’s third league success in a row, moved them into the top four, above Tottenham Hotspur, who play Aston Villa on New Year’s Day.
