Thierry Henry accuses Marcus Rashford of not using his brain vs Tottenham

Former Arsenal forward Thierry Henry has claimed that Marcus Rashford didn’t use his brain during Manchester United’s win over Tottenham.

Erik ten Hag started with Rashford upfront because he wanted a striker who could run behind Spurs’ defence.

The England international had some chances to get on the scoreboard but poor finishing and Hugo Lloris’ masterclass stopped him from scoring his first league goal since his brace against Arsenal.

Rashford created a shooting chance for himself late in the game and had a powerful strike on goal from a close range but Tottenham goalie Lloris punched it away, leaving the 24-year-old in awe.

Some fans may have enjoyed Rashford’s strike as it was Lloris who pulled off a top save rather than a poor finishing from the Manchester United striker but Henry thought the England international didn’t use his brain otherwise he would have kept his cool and place the ball far from the goalkeeper using his outside of his boot.

Speaking after the game, Henry told Prime Video on Rashford: “You open the goal up. Just finish it. Place it, why hard? Side foot, goal. See you later.”

Patrice Evra replied: “Not everyone has your brain Henry.”

Henry continued: “I know but you have one, use it.”

Manchester United are back in action this weekend when they face Chelsea away from home in the Premier League.

The Blues dropped two points at Brentford after the tie ended in a goalless draw.
