Rashford urges erratic Man Utd to ‘get back to basics’ following early season struggles

Marcus Rashford has urged Manchester United to ‘get back to basics’ following their latest disappointing result this weekend.

To say it’s been a topsy turvy season for Manchester United would be somewhat of an understatement, the Old Trafford outfit winless in the league at their historic home stadium, including a chastening 6-1 loss to Spurs.

The club have, however, shown flashes of brilliance at times, beating Newcastle 4-1 in the league while earning hugely creditable wins against PSG and RB Leipzig in their opening two Champions League ties.

The Red Devils were far from their best as the succumbed to a 1-0 loss to Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, and Marcus Rashford has urged his teammates to ‘get back to basics’ following their erratic early-season form.

“It’s been tough,” the England forward told “Obviously, we’ve had a lot of big games and games we need to get points in. It’s been a bit up and down but it’s like that sometimes.

“Like you say, it’s been an alright month but, for now, it’s all about sticking together and finding a way to win games and really picking up the belief.

“We always bounce back when we don’t do so well and I think it’s another one of those times. We have to come together as a team, get back to the basics, and win games.”

Rashford’s comments come after he scooped the Manchester United Player of the Month award for October, the striker scoring the winner against PSG before joining an exclusive club of players to score a Champions League hat-trick having come off the bench against Leipzig; all against the backdrop of his impressive off-the-field campaign to end child poverty.

Next up for United is an away trip to Istanbul to face Basaksehir on Wednesday night before facing Everton at Goodison Park next weekend.
