Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has revealed that Dutch boss Erik ten Hag has helped make his game more dangerous.

         The England striker has been heavily criticized for his performance last season amid the club’s failures. But this year, he’s back in good form again, with eight goals and three assists in 18 games in all competitions, which he revealed was influenced by working with the Dutchman.

         “I’m more efficient,” Rashford said. “I’m in a more dangerous position and that’s about me. I can help the team win the game. I can score goals and provide assists. That’s the goal ufabet.”

         “It’s probably about the style of play that we’ve created. Create better chances and play football that looks forward.”

         “He likes having the ball but he likes us finishing as well. And that’s what I am. So I enjoyed my time under him.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Defeat to Aston Villa in Unai Emery’s first match in charge last weekend put a halt to an impressive run of form for Ten Hag’s side, which had seen them unbeaten in the league since the beginning of October. The Red Devils are still within reach of the Champions League places, though, as they sit just six points off Spurs in fourth having played two games fewer.

WHAT NEXT FOR RASHFORD? Rashford is set to feature in United’s last match before the World Cup against Fulham. He will then hope to make an impact for England in Qatar, with their first match coming against Iran on November 21.
