Roy Keane praises Marcus Rashford display for Manchester United vs Tottenham HotspurManchester United took on Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday evening.Marcus Rashford started the match for the Red Devils. United manager Erik ten Hag deployed the 26-year-old forward on the left of an attacking midfield-three in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

The 26-year-old played until the final minutes of second half. He scored United’s second goal in the match in the 40th minute.It was a brilliantly taken goal as well that showcased the best of what Rashford has to offer.United legend Roy Keane was following the match for Sky Sports, and the pundit was impressed by the display produced by Rashford in the first half.

Keane said about Rashford on Sky Sports Premier League (5:27 pm, January 14, 2024): “This is what we want to see from Rashford. He is hungry, he has got desire, and that is a brilliant finish. “You knew straightaway he was at it, the way he is running in behind, particularly for the first goal. It’s all well and good being good in possession, but you need runners, and he is doing that.”

Begin said on Premier League Productions: “It’s a really lovely finish. Manchester United have found it very difficult to find space anywhere around the Tottenham box, they’ve had to be efficient and that’s certainly efficient. “There’s just enough room for Rashford, it goes through the legs of the defender and it’s hard for the goalkeeper. It’s a cleverly-worked finish.”My View: Marcus Rashford has to build on his display vs TottenhamIn my opinion, Marcus Rashford had a good game against Tottenham Hotspur. I do not think that the 26-year-old Manchester United forward was at his best, but he was certainly a big threat to the Spurs defenders throughout his time on the pitch.Rashford took two shots, had a pass accuracy of 56.3%, took 41 touches, attempted two dribbles, made one clearance, and put in two crosses.In my view, Rashford has to kick on now and has to get consistency back into his game. We know that he has a lot of potential, but he needs to do it week in and week out.
