Rashford: It was a big win for us
Hear what Marcus Rashford had to say to MUTV, after the striker scored in our 3-1 victory at Carrow Road...
Q: First of all Marcus, congratulations - 50 Manchester United goals at 21. That’s not bad… Yeah, it’s a nice feeling. I think today was a big win for us and it was maybe the first time this season we’ve had back-to-back wins. It’s a positive and we can work hard now leading up to the Chelsea game and hopefully get another win. Q: The front three: yourself, Dan and Anthony were looking a real threat today… Yeah, I think the one thing we can improve on is making more clear-cut opportunities for each other. For me, that’s the next step. We’re creating and making each other half chances, but, as forwards, the easier the goals you can get, the better. We want to be able to just square it past the goalkeeper and tap in it. We’ve been working hard and I think if we keep working hard, it’ll become easier for us. Q: Your goal, you got a little bit of time to think about it. Do you prefer those situations or where it’s more instinctive? I think this one’s not so bad. The keeper’s not really rushing out at you so you can relax and pick your spot. It’s a brilliant ball from Dan, even to recognise the space and when we play like that it’s devastating. Like I said, we can keep doing that and keep making chances for each other. Q: Is Dan’s form a bonus almost? He came from Swansea and people weren’t too sure how long he’d take to settle in, but he’s had a great impact on his short United career… He’s had a brilliant impact - he’s scored important goals and he’s assisting as well. The main thing is that he’s working hard for the team and the other stuff just comes with the game. He’s the prime example of that. We’re all hungry to keep pushing, to keep scoring more goals and keep assisting each other. I think if us three can keep doing that on a regular basis then we’ll definitely get some more points. Q: You’re link up with Anthony, especially for the third goal, do you just know where he is there when you do your little backheel? I think we’re just talking to each other as we’re playing and it makes it more simple for you on the ball because if it’s impossible to see him, it’s impossible to make that pass. But if we can give information as we pass the ball it just makes it that bit more simple. That’s the next step for us. Q: All these things people have been talking about: not winning away - we’ve done that twice in four days, not scoring more than one goal - we’ve done that today. Do you feel things are progressing now? In the last couple of games we’ve been very unlucky and the key moments in matches just haven’t been going our way. We know it’s football and that can happen, but, for me, for the last two games we’ve done very well to win the games. The away game in the Europa League was a tough place to go. That’s something we need to improve on: if we are 1-0 up we need to see the game out. Today we managed to do that and get a couple of goals. It’s positive and we can do better, but we take the three points and just try and improve. Q: Finally, we’re up to seventh now. That’s not where we want to be, but it just shows things can change quite quickly if you get a win or two… I’ve always said if you win three games on the spin in the Premier League, how tight it is, you can change your season around. We take it one game at at time and we just try and win every game. If we keep that focus of improving as a team, that focus we had at the beginning of the season, we’ll be fine. It’s a positive performance today and we just try and kick on.
