Erik ten Hag reacts to Marcus Rashford goalscoring form, Charlton Athletic clash

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is convinced Marcus Rashford can keep his current goalscoring form up and running after he scored again against Everton.

Rashford has scored five goals on a bounce in five games since the restart of club action in December, including his late goal against Everton on Friday night in the FA Cup.

The England international now has 13 goals in all competitions so far and he’s not looking like he’s stopping anytime soon.

And Ten Hag is convinced the England international can continue his goalscoring form, although he added that the 25-year-old needs concentration and good work to carry on.

Speaking about the Englishman form, he told BBC: “He [Marcus Rashford] is in good form and on a good run, keep it going. If he keeps focus, concentration and the good work. If he keeps investing in training and games, I am convinced he can keep it going.”

Rashford himself believes he can score more goals for Manchester United but that depends on his team-mates to create more scoring chances.

“Goalscoring form, this is up there with the best I’ve been,” said Rashford. “If we keep creating chances, I feel that I’ll keep scoring.”

Frank Lampard hails Marcus Rashford as the difference, thanks to his individual brilliance: “Marcus Rashford was probably the difference. A top individual talent can do that to you.”

Manchester United will face Charlton Athletic next week in the Carabao Cup quarter-final and Ten Hag has claimed that he already has plans for the cup game.

Speaking about the fixture, he said: “I have in my mind a plan [for the game] but first I sleep.”
