Marcu Rashford has urged the Manchester United side to be more urgent and consistent in their chase for top four.
“The consistency in the performance and the consistency in the games you win are two completely different things,” he told Sky Sports.
“Out of 38 league games, you’re not going to play well 38 times but just because you don’t play well, doesn’t mean you can’t win the game and that’s the thing we can improve on. When we’re not quite playing at our best, we can find a way to get over the line.
“If we control the moments when the opposition are on top better, I’m sure in time we will know how to control them, their fans, the tempo that they play at and once we do that, we can start to win consistently.”
“It’s going to be tough [to get into the top four] but it’s nowhere near impossible. We don’t need to focus on any other teams, we play our best football when we focus on ourselves and us improving.
“That’s the only way Man Utd play good football and we need to get back to doing that. It can be very simple for us and at the same time, you don’t want to make it complicated for yourself.
“The main thing is bouncing back. I always think with home games, if you’re energetic on the pitch, you’re making runs and you’re lively, you win games more often than not.
“Old Trafford is a special place and if we do that with the fans behind us, it’s a tough place to come. With the tempo we play at when we’re at our best, it’s very hard to stop us so we use it as a template and we need to get back to doing that.”
“I just look at the games where we’ve done it well and the games where we haven’t. You weigh them up and look at how you can be more consistent in the games you’ve done well in.
“There was the game against Leicester where it wasn’t 90 minutes of fun but you go through the game. We won 1-0 and it does a lot for the team and you as an individual. But ideally, you want that support there and you want to be in positions to help your team-mates.”
