Marcus Rashford’s promising start to the season bodes well for the future

Even before Eric Ten Haag’s appointment, there were numerous reports that he was a fan of Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford and was not selected by the team in recent Premier League games. , and it appears that this information is correct.

At the end of last season, Rashford suffered a lot of backlash as he was often found walking up the pitch, not running very fast and struggling to find the back of the net.

Rashford has been exceptional in pre-season under the new manager, particularly when he captained a friendly. He got a new lease on life when he played smart football and the team came together.

Despite United’s shaky start to the season, Rashford is still in the best form of the last 12 months.

He has started all six Premier League games so far, scoring three goals and providing two assists.

He averaged 2.5 shots per game, far better than his Redskins Anthony Elanga, and missed just one big shot in those six games.

As for his passing accuracy, he is averaging 73% per game, but there is room for improvement in his long ball accuracy and cross ball accuracy, which is only 29%.

He completed 53% of his dribbles, twice as many as his young teammate Athony Elanga, but lost 11.5 possessions.

Perhaps compared to last season, Rashford looks on fire, played a vital role in United’s recent league success, and while we can enjoy his current form, he still has a lot more to do. to offer.

Few players can match Rashford’s role in the starting XI right now.

Ronaldo, although only used as a substitute in the league, creates chances but fails to convert them, and his pressure has somewhat missed him. Rashford’s move and desire to help the team seems to suit Ten Hag better.

Confidence has always been a big issue for Rashford, but if he can maintain the form he’s always been, if the team and the fans support him and his style of play, his overall game will definitely improve. doubt.
