Former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher has backed Marcus Rashford to make an impact in the Red Devils’ upcoming crunch clash against Liverpool. United are currently in the 12th place in the league while the Merseysiders are perched atop the Premier League table.
Rashford has struggled to find the net after being deployed in his desired number 9 position by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He has scored only two goals until now, with one of them coming from an open play.
And, Fletcher thinks time is not up yet and the 21-year-old could still start firing on all cylinders when he face Liverpool.
“I think Daniel James has been a breath of fresh air and Scott McTominay has come to the fore and drives the team forward. Probably Marcus Rashford [is the match-winner in the side],” he told Sky Sports.
“I think he is feeling the pressure of that a little bit this season, you want to say to him ‘relax, don’t try too hard’. We want him to try, obviously, but it’s a case of not trying too hard – wait for your opportunities.”
“I think for Marcus Rashford, like Manchester United, it could be the game that kick-starts the season. He’s a real talisman and the goals and performances are in him, all it takes is something to click.”
