Marcus Rashford says Manchester United can beat the biggest teams

Marcus Rashford says Manchester United can beat any opposition, even if they do not produce their best form.

The 25-year-old is enjoying a fine season, registering 18 goals in 31 appearances across all competitions.

His performances have resulted in him winning the Premier League Player of the Month for January. He now hopes to help the club win silverware.

Rashford told Sky Sports: “We’ve shown, even at our worst, that we can beat the biggest teams and it’s not luck. It’s not, ‘Oh, they had a lucky day’.

“Other than last season, where we weren’t quite consistent with it, we have had good games against the best teams in the country.

“Some of the teams, especially City over the last few years, Liverpool, Arsenal this season – they are probably the best teams in Europe and are definitely in that conversation.

“It all starts with just the belief, and winning games against the likes of those teams gives you that belief that you can go on and win trophies.

“You’re always having to compete with other teams, but we have almost had to take a step back from it and just work on ourselves and that is the manager’s mindset.”

United will likely win the Carabao Cup 

Erik ten Hag has brought about a considerable improvement since being appointed manager last summer.

United are doing remarkably well in the Premier League and on course to secure Champions League football for next season. 

They have also made it to the final of the Carabao Cup, easily triumphing against Nottingham Forest in the two-legged semi-final. 

The Red Devils haven’t won a trophy since 2017, when they lifted the EFL Cup under manager Jose Mourinho.

However, they now have a brilliant opportunity to end their trophy drought by winning the final against Newcastle United. 

The Magpies have been a completely different side this campaign, but we believe that United will prevail in the Wembley Stadium encounter. 

The squad looks strong in almost all areas, with Wout Weghorst and Marcel Sabitzer arriving in January to help them achieve their targets this season.
