Man United’s Marcus Rashford has been named the Premier League’s Player of the Month. Rashford is receiving that honour for the first time in more than 3.5 years, which is directly related to the upward trajectory Erik ten Hag has made at Old Trafford.
The birthday boy responded enthusiastically on his employer’s club channels. “I like how I feel right now. We didn’t anticipate having such a strong season debut. The task for all of us right now is to maintain this and keep winning. Everyone has contributed, in my opinion. Good teamwork was the key to our victories. Although we’re always improving, we still have a ways to go.
In the past month, there hasn’t been much Premier League action. Both of United’s league games—a 1-0 victory against Leicester City and a 3-1 victory at Arsenal—ended in victories. Rashford led the way in that final game with two goals. Due to the death of the British Queen, the two weekends after that saw no matches, and last week there was a global hiatus.
As a result the English footballer has scored thrice in six appearances. Furthermore, he has also got himself a couple of assists.
Man United’s Marcus Rashford also had an injury at Arsenal. However, it appears like the attacker might play again in Sunday’s Manchester derby.
