Rashford insists Manchester United are ‘going places’ under Solskjaer after beating Chelsea again

Marcus Rashford insists Manchester United are ‘going places’ under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after beating Chelsea 2-1 in the Carabao Cup fourth-round at Stamford Bridge.

Rashford scored twice to seal United’s progress to the quarter-finals, opening the scoring from the penalty spot before hitting the second with a stunning free-kick from distance to secure the club’s third successive away victory.

The win booked United’s place in the last eight where they will face League Two Colchester at Old Trafford, and Rashford insists the club’s recent run of victories is just reward for their hard work following a difficult start to the new season.

“We have been in a tough place,” Rashford told Sky Sports.

“We are still getting through that phase and the only way to do it is to fight your way through it.

“The main focus for us is just improvement and development because we are definitely going places. We have done a lot of good work.

“The start of the season wasn’t exactly what we expected but we have got to get through it and get back to winning games.”
