Rashford explains superb goalscoring form
Marcus Rashford has revealed that consistency and confidence is the reason behind his superb goalscoring form.

Speaking after the game to Sky Sports, Marcus explained the reasons behind his phenomenal form in front of goal.
“I think for a forward, consistency plays a big part,” the striker said after the match. “I’ve been playing every game in the league and have been getting regular chances in front of goal as well.
“When you feel good in front of goal, and you’re getting regular opportunities, if you miss a few it doesn’t matter because you’re confident that when the next one comes you’ll put it away.”
In particular, Marcus was inches away from finding the back of the net when his effort in the first half crashed off the crossbar and the England international was disappointed to only bag one in the Manchester derby.
“I was unlucky with one that hit the bar and the one from Fred when I tried to go first time. These are little things that if we can nail them down, we can be coming in three or four goals up. For us, then the game is finished then and these are the things we can improve on.
“It’s a tough win and sometimes they do more for you as a team. We’ll enjoy the victory and I think it will help us a lot going forward.”

“It’s class,” he grinned. “Nothing is better than that feeling and on a day like this you can’t top that. It’s very positive and I’m happy for the fans and the team.”
