Rashford admits ‘inconsistent’ Manchester United ‘need to improve’

Marcus Rashford has admitted that Manchester United are too inconsistent and need to improve, despite grabbing a 2-1 win over Bournemouth this afternoon.

Manchester United went into the game with heightened levels of confidence after some morale-boosting performances against Newcastle, Chelsea and Everton in recent weeks, but looked like a team of strangers during a first half in which Bournemouth could have scored a number of goals.

The Red Devils would haul themselves back into the game before half-time thanks to Anthony Martial’s fifth goal in four games before Marcus Rashford fired home a 92nd minute winner.

The match winner — who turned 21 earlier this week — said that while it was an important three points for the 20-time league champions, they need to improve their performances throughout the whole game.

“You can say that we just have to improve in the start how we usually play in the end, we just need to get it right,” Rashford told BT Sport.

“The most important thing is the three points, we have had an inconsistent start to the season.

“It always helps getting points, like you said we’ve got a big week ahead.”

United face Juventus on Wednesday in the Champions League before the first Manchester Derby of the season next weekend.
