Rashford opens up about his penalty technique after Chelsea win

Marcus Rashford has discussed his penalty technique after scoring from the spot in Manchester United’s 4-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday.

The England international stepped up to fire the opener from the spot, after Chelsea‘s Kurt Zouma had brought the 21-year-old down in the area.

Rashford – who also netted Manchester United‘s third – took the responsibility of taking the penalty, despite the presence of regular taker Paul Pogba on the pitch, and he has now scored with each of his four penalties in senior football.

The 21-year-old has opened up on his technique, admitting he likes to wait for movement from the goalkeeper before picking his side.

“It’s about waiting for the keeper but if he doesn’t give you much then you go with which side you’re confident with. The keeper stood tall so it was hard,” Rashford told Sky Sports.

”I look at him and wait to see if he can give me some movement when I’m running up and then decide which side I’m going.”
