Rashford found the net for the sixth successive game since the domestic season restarted after the World Cup.
Marcus Rashford is now going stronger for Man United with every game. He scored a brace in the League Cup quarterfinal and send his team into the semifinals of the domestic competition.
The Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag expects the Englishman to keep banging in the goals after his impressive show in the 3-0 Carabao Cup win over Charlton.
Rashford came off the bench to score two goals in stoppage time. It was Man United’s third semifinal entry in four years. This time, they would break the jinx of not winning a trophy since 2017.
Antony started the scoring for United and Rashford’s brace ensured he found the net for the sixth successive game since the domestic season restarted after the World Cup.
“I have told you many times, when he brings himself into position, when the teams puts him in the positions, in the one-on-ones in the box he will score and that is what he is doing at this moment,” Erik ten Hag said.
“So if he keeps the focus and keeps putting the effort in he will keep on scoring.
“What you see now with Rashy, that is quite obvious, it wasn’t at the start of the season but now he is in the right moment.”
And the Dutchman wanted his side to be more clinical.
“The first half-hour I was quite happy, I was less happy with being clinical in front of goal, we need to be more effective there because we created good chances in the first half-hour,” he said.
“We should have scored more in the first half and also second half there was a good save and a few moments where we needed an extra pass but we didn’t so until the end we had to fight for it.
“I don’t think they created really good open chances but still you never know. We are progressing after the winter break, this is the third time we have won 3-0 which is good but we have to be more clinical.
“But we have scoring players in our team.”
